aquaponicslifestyle: How has the greenhouse been holding? Thanks for sharing!
Abe Ali: Nice work. Where did you get the mister system? Do you have any issues
with misters system clogging up? I highly recommend a filter for it and
change it out at least every season.
SilverDollarSaloon: Nice Job on your Harbor Freight Greenhouse.I have the same HFGH and did
alot of modifications to the foundation and inside building support.I made
mine to last through rain and wind.Short of a Hurricane or Tornado.One main
improvement is I calked all the panels and added twice as many clips than
came with the package.
ScoutCrafter: Very nice build!
63mickeyluvr: Is this the 10x 12 greenhouse with W clips from harbor freight. I purchased
this greenhouse 5 years ago. The first year I had it we had 5 mph winds and
10-12 of the panels blew out. We reassembled using rubber washers on tap
screws to hold the panels in. 2nd year we had another 5 mph windstorm and
the greenhouse buckled like a tin can. It says it will withstand snow but
with my experience I don't think that is true. I live in California and we
have rather mild winters.
B Adams: I watched your video. Nice job on the greenhouse. Attaching your greenhouse
to your shelving that is anchored in the ground will give your greenhouse
more rigidity and help it withstand strong winds. My greenhouse will be 4
years old this November and is holding up well. We have had summer time
temperatures in excess of 100 degrees and winds in excess of 60 mph. I am
very pleased with the endurance of the greenhouse. I have grown hundreds of
plants in it over the last four years.
Stephen Shaffer: How long has yours lasted? Check out my harbor freight setup. Very curious
on how long this will last.
eTechTom: Nice job. I purchased the same greenhouse but haven't had the time to
assemble it yet. You should add the improvements you can find in online
blogs. Here are a couple of sites I found.
Just cut and paste into explorer. The comments section doesn't seem allow
links. Thanks for the video.
poppafish428: You have done an awesome job with your setup.It just shows what American
Ingenuity is all about.Being self sufficient is so satisfying.I'm looking
to set up a green house of sorts but my space is limited.I will borrow an
idea or two from you if that's o.k.All the best to you and yours.
ThespiritofEliyahu: @badams48 can i ask where you ordered the extra clips from did you contact
harbor freight or the manufacturer? Thanks!
JetSetDiva: I'm thinking of getting one of these to overwinter my bonsai here in NC.
How have the polycarbonate panels held up so far?
B Adams: Those are good ideas for securing the greenhouse.
TheGor54: are you an American or an american't?
LuvTheSnapper: shoo that bad boy is sweet with all those additions. the misters are really
cool. i gotta get me something like that.
B Adams: Yes, it is 20' from the bottom of the aluminum base to the roof peak. My
greenhouse measured 19' 6" because I have 4" of gravel and pavers.
Gary Thompson: continued from below..........Soooo who needs clips?
snapsalot: Wow that is a really nice greenhouse. Great job on running your misters,
electricity and stuff.
B Adams: Thanks for the comment. I purchase my misters online from charleys
greenhouse. If you search around you may be able to find the parts a little
cheaper. I have added more misters to get better coverage of the plants.
The greenhouse still looks good after 3 years.
72542: Very nicely done. I don't know where you live, but if you get any wind, you
may want to do a search for "harbor freight greenhouse improvements", and
look at some strengthening of the frame. The panels can pop out when the
winds come up, as can happen in a thunderstorm. Also, caulking at both ends
of the panels will help stop moisture from forming inside of them and
eventually causing discoloration.
dunkin doobing: how has it held up I have wanted to buy one but want sure how long it would
last do you take it down in winter
TheGor54: Manufactured by slave laborers in China. Assembled by proud unemployed
Americans. Everybody happy?
B Adams: The hardest part for me was preparing the foundation. I dug out and leveled
a hole that was 4 inches deep and slightly larger than 10x12 feet. I made
sure everything was square and level. I used 6 solid Cement. 4-in x 8-in x
16-in blocks to secure the aluminum frame of the greenhouse to the blocks.
Four block in the corners and two center on the 12 foot side of the
greenhouse. I then filled in the hole with gravel before setting my
Gbridget Williams: I have this 10 x 12 greenhouse. had it for 4 years now. The clear panels on
the roof need to be replaced (hail damage) including the vents. Where can I
get the panels?
Kntryhart: Nice job!
barneycarparts: Nice Man I did pretty much same thing, only I used full pavers. I used
Arizona Misters, a fan, the Harbor Freight easy opener vent actuators dont
work for more that 6 months so might consider Electric screw drives. My
orbit electric Jar top solenoids leaked after 2 years. They always do, but
easy to repair, Just clean then with a toothbrush .
JRod350: Nice work on your greenhouse! Harbor Freight is awesome.
earthbrn: I just built two of them and the height on the box says 10'3" and turns out
to be about right. Not sure where they got the 20' from not even close....
B Adams: @ThespiritofEliyahu charleys greenhouse online
Brad Gray: Love your greenhouse.. that's awesome. I'd like to have that in my yard!
psychologymovies: Great work! I have an enclosed garden and would like to set up an overhead
irrigation system like you have here. Where did you get the misters?
B Adams: So far my greenhouse is holding up fine. The greenhouse has been through
some rough weather since I constructed it in 2009. The shelves inside the
greenhouse are anchored to the ground with 4x4 ts. post. This probably adds
extra rigidity to the structure. I would have thought the panels would have
blown out before the structure twisted and collapsed.
B Adams: Thanks for the feedback.
marcogerra: very nice.
MrEnergyCzar: Awesome, how big is the box it comes in?
B Adams: 72542- Thanks for the suggestions.
MRVITIN101: Were the sprinklers Expensive? and where was it purchased ? thanks
tylertehman: @badams48 good good! i just went ahead didnt even mess with the clips and
just screwed them into the aluminum xD!
B Adams: @RONLEEC1 I overwinter some of my tropical plants in the greenhouse. The
greenhouse has been great for starting all my bedding plants for my garden.
The greenhouse is still looking good. I plan on growing tomatoes in the
greenhouse this winter. If I am successful I will upload a video.
Clint Dawley: Can you tell me the exact dimensions of the base? I ordered one but it
won't be here for a couple weeks and I wanted to get started on the
foundation. Thank you!
Bigjohnnywad: What would the temp get up to without the ventilation?
eyefishification: Great video man...I am thinking about getting a green house for my planting
and year round produce and flowers. Are you still happy with your Harbor
Freight green house? Any infor would be appreciated.
lastdollarfilms: I am. Very much so.
justgivemethetruth: This is cool ... how much is something like this?
Sean32087: sweet! i was thinking of buying one of those. thanks for the tour. and nice
Gehenna71: Nice! Keep up the good work, your plants seem to like it :)
tylertehman: @badams48 i just sit up my greenhouse here in arab alabama 10x12
harborfreight like yours what we did we used self tapping screws and
screwed the panels in if you dont they will keep blowing out and how im
gonna cool my in the summer is gonna be a evaporative cooler so it takes
the needs out for misters also we roostered all the panes im going to build a
U shape table outta plyboard and 2by4s and bring in my reverse osmosis!!
yours looks great!
B Adams: I was also concerned with the durability of the polycarbonate panels. So
far they have help up and still look good. Because of the high temperatures
here in south Alabama, I put a shade cloth on the top during the summer.
Amphiprionic: Where did you buy the shelves that your plants are on?
