Winter is coming and in order to get some lettuces during the winter I created this greenhouse for my plantation boxes.
I hope you will enjoy this instructables this is the first of mine. Please provide feedback :)
I did some measures to observe the difference of temperature inside and outside the greenhouse (third picture) and as you can see it seems pretty good.
Note: the measure were done with the greenhouse totally closed.
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Required Material
Step 2: Prepare 4 Stuck of Wood
You need to get 4 pieces of wood.
- 2x 80cm
- 2x 111.5cm
Step 3: Fix the Wood Parts Together With Angles
Simply rely the four parts together with 4 angles and screws.
In order to obtain something flat I recommend to do it on the floor (not vertically) that way you are sure (assuming your floor is flat.)
Step 4: Perfore 6 Holes in the Wood
In order to introduce the tubes we need to perfore 6 holes.
1 on each corner and 2 in the middle of the longest parts of wood.
Step 5: Cut 3 Arcs
Cut 3 arcs of the same length in the plastic tube.
I used some tubes quite flexible take care when you buy yours that they are enough flexible
Step 6: Place the Tubes Into the Holes
Step 7: Fix Theses Arcs
With a screw fix the arcs simply by perforing the wood and then the tube will be like attracted to the exterior of the wood.
Step 8: Perfore the Top of Each Arc
Then you need to perfore the top of each arc that way we can attach the rest of the structure and we get sure it is not going to move.
Step 9: Prepare 3 Tubes
You can cut 3 tubes of the same length.
All of them have to measure 117cm.
Step 10: Perfore Extremities of the Tubes
Perfore each extremity of each of the tree tubes.
Step 11: Fix the Top Tube
Use the small holes we did earlier to fix all of it.
Step 12: Fix the Two Other Tubes
Exactly like previous step
Step 13: Plastify
This part is the most difficult. In order to get good looking results you need to go slowly and carefully.
Step 14: Optional 1: Make It Adjustable
If you put these 2 peaces you can quite easily make it really convenient.
I prefere this variant because you can really simply open the greenhouse without efforts.
Step 15: Optional 2: Cut Some Windows in the House
If like me in this situation you want to simply have some windows to put your hands on you can easily cut some "doors" into the plastic.
I don't know how it will support winter but I guess it's not optimal.
