I bought an multi purpose heavy duty plastic polythene sheet 3m x 4m from my local diy store for 7 pounds.

Step 3:

I made a triangle door and fixed it with two hinges. I covered this with the plastic sheet.
I cut the sheet to fix each sides of the greenhouse and stapled it to the wooden frame.

Step 4:

Cheap but well worth the build for the total of 10 pounds.

Great idea to start with a pallet.  I'm going to weight mine down with a "floor" of concrete pavers on top of the pallet so it's less tippy in the wind.  Also the pavers will hopefully hold some heat into the night.  For the plastic, I have several old clear shower curtain liners which will work fine.

I love the idea, but there isn't much "instructing" going on. As someone who has done some building, that's okay, but I can't figure out what's going on with the angled piece in the last frame. I get the two pieces running parallel insides the greenhouse, but what's the square of material/wood on the outside? I guess this would have also made a nice doghouse? :-) You seem to have someone who enjoyed it.

The angled piece on the side of the frame is the door, and the wood piece on the outside is going to be an air vent, this is coz i noticed that the greenhouse get's really hot. lol, I made a dog house too.

It was the air vent that I couldn't figure out. Thanks!
