You might want to buy some 4×4’s when you see this awesome idea for your yard!

This is a cedar greenhouse I built last year in my yard .It is 10 ft wide by 11 1/2 ft long . I had some extra lumber laying around so this is what I decided to make 🙂

Time: 1 Weeks Cost: $1600 Difficulty: Easy

I started by using 4 pressure treated 4x4s for the bottom plates of the frame .

I did half lap joints on the bottom of the frame .

The height of the walls are 6 ft .Once they were in place I plumbed them up and made sure everything is square and level .

next step was adding the main roof frame .

I added all the 4x4s afterwards once I knew how wide the plastic sheets were so it would be less cutting . I added cedar trim pieces so the plastic could be attached . I used 1 x 6 cedar for the bottom section .

I filled in the rest of the roof rafters then added the rest of the plastic .I also added 2 roof vents at the top of the roof .

I also added removable shelving to the inside of the green house .

Once the plastic was done I added the double door to the front .
