The Ultimate Cattle Panel Greenhouse
Now days no matter where you live if your going to be self sufficient on your homestead your going to need a greenhouse.
We love the cattle panel greenhouse design. They are many of them out there and all of them have their own unique spin to them as ours does.
You need to do a little planning when you are going to build your greenhouse, but if you build yours like ours or some others out there planning where you are going to put it matters, but not so much when it is built on skids. So if you dont like where you put it for the current growing season you can move it to a new location for your next growing season. Kinda like a chicken tractor. Which this design can also be used as a chicken tractor or even as an animal shelter or small shed.
Having a greenhouse you can extend the growing season, start growing weeks ahead of the next growing season, and with a little blessing always be a step ahead.
First and most important is safety. I try to have safety glasses all the time. Once you have to get something removed from your eye you will not hesitate to wear safety glasses.
Here are some of the tools we used to build our greenhouse.
We built our Ultimate Cattle Panel Greenhouse on the floor of our 20 foot goose neck trailer so we would have a flat surface to work on.
We built our greenhouse 82 inches wide so it would fit inside the rails of our trailer and for when customers want one we can give them the dimensions.
Here is a great picture of our greenhouse with the skids squared, window framed, door framed, and a shelf started.
Using our saw to rip a 2×4 in half to build the window and door.
We used a 1×2 to space the boards going on our shelves.
After getting the greenhouse off the trailer we held it up with our tractor so we could spread the black plastic under it.
This is what it looks like with our greenhouse plastic on it. Try to put it on on a day with no wind and with any luck an extra couple of hands to help you.
Shelves almost finished and more important a walk way. We had these bricks laying around so we put them to use. We recommend you put something down so you dont walk on the black plastic and tear it.
Dont wanna forget that automatic window opener. Got to keep them temperatures right inside the greenhouse.
Enjoy your greenhouse and happy gardening.
