I broke this down into many steps to make it easier. This is such a simple project that even a couple of kids can do it with little to no adult supervision.
This whole unit costs less than $25.00, but gives you the room of a $500 greenhouse.
The whole assembly to less than 20 minutes from start to end.
This is my first post, but hopefully with success it will entice me to post more.
Step 1: Collecting the Supplies
Cost (est) Total
A 6 1/2" Schedule 40 PVC Pipe 10' Plain End $1.25 $7.50
B 6 1/2" "T" Connector $0.30 $1.80
C 4 1/2" 90' Elbow $0.25 $1.00
D 0.5 10 Ft. x 25 Ft. Clear 6 Mil Consumer Sheeting $26.20 $13.10
(Enough to make 2 mini greenhouses)
And a cup of coffee or a soda.
(this project will be completed before your coffee can get cold for your soda warm!)
Total cost (minus your drink and taxes) comes to& $23.40
Step 2: Gathering the tools you will need
Tape measure (at least 10 feet long)
Marker of some type (a sharpie works wonders)
Razor knife or scissors (to cut the plastic sheet)
A saw capable of cutting PVC (I used my saw-all, but with kids they could use a hacksaw).
If you're trying to do this alone, like I was, I used a couple of clamps and saw horses to work on.
