How can I SIMPLY Construct a Greenhouse with a Dog Kennel, being a female, EASY INSTRUCTION ? Answered

I am trying to start a home business with plants, but really need a greenhouse, since I will be purchasing plugs, which will be delivered in February and need somewhere to store until I can pot them in bigger pots. You have such good suggestions and your input would be appreciated!

We just put together a greenhouse out of dog kennel panels. We used four 10x10x6 for the sides (one panel has 2 doors). For the roof we took 2 10x10x4 and put them so across from one side to the other and clamped them on one side. Then we took a 10x10x4 panel and put it on the other side and clamped it long ways to the 2 4 foot wide sections. We then pushed the whole thing up and clamped it to the side. We now have a pitched roof. We haven't put the plastic on yet as it is too windy today. It took less than an hour to put it together. You will need 2 people to push the last side up while the 3rd person puts the clamps on...it helped that they were all 3 over 6 ft tall!

I would go with clear plastic as GuardianFox suggests. For the roof, place an old basketball under the center of the plastic, this will provide slope and the round shape will not puncture the plastic. You will have to mind the maintenance of your creation, plastic and sunlight don't last forever. Also, do the job as neatly as possible because a tidy looking creation is better for your psyche!
