CharlysGardenSchool G: I've heard a couple people say the Harbor Freight greenhouse works for
them... Mine was a disaster!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They do NOT work in windy
areas (avg 60 mph gusts, North and South winds); even my prevailing wind
has the panels rattling all four seasons. It is securely fastened to
half-buried railroad ties. After the doors blew off, more panels blew off
with each wind, the horizontal aluminum bar on the end broke, and the roof
peak bent 45-degrees, and the center is now sagging. Although it's fairly
stable once the panels are on, it's more frail than I thought it would be.
Now it's a fairly useless shell with the bent roof peak propped up to
vertical with a piece of bamboo against the house. Unfortunately, I - a
dreamer - bought two, because they were on sale. It was an entire waste of
money and I should have invested in good greenhouse fabric/plastic and
scavenged the rest of the materials for a good tunnel or light-weight
greenhouse... oh, well :)
Critical analyses: The roof is weak and tends to cave in the center without
support (there is a weak spot where two pieces are joined to reinforce),
and once a gust of wind gets inside (when a roof vent bends to the wind, or
a door is lifted), it bows the panels vertically and they blow out.
Reinforcement is definitely required. For those with building restrictions,
and in my case, a full support for all four corners and roof means I'd
practically have to build a greenhouse inside the greenhouse.
alice coppers: Put one together in 2011 and it's still going strong....cement used for
keeping foundation down in corners and center...really helps secure it in
Ahmed Saber: give me the address.to make an order.
alice coppers: Mine was 500 on CL
Bonnie Cavanaugh: how much was the green house? not sure you stated that....
Drew Grow: NICE
David Greener: VERY NICE
alphasxsignal: What type of floor did you put down in it?Did you fasten it down to wood
the bottom frame 2x8 or something?
Mallorie Rogers: is this twin wall polycarbonite
alphasxsignal: Yea if you use good clear cauling on the panels that thing will hold up
real nice in the winds.
HortonKansas: Very nice set-up!
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.
1babycody: A very clean professional setup. Unfortunately this build was not
documented, so that others could reproduce it. This is great for
inspiration though. There appears to be at least 5 really great tutorials
lost to the rest of us. I hope that we might see this in your next
myownruin187: Great set up, thank you for sharing..
Seweryn Bielecki: what state is this in?
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.
Randy Cruz: After the fan & elect installation, what was your cost on this greenhouse..
Danger Close: That greenhouse is NOT 20 ft from peak to bottom. Do you know how to read a
TruthJunkie: Where did you get that solenoid that controls the water sprinklers?
TitanGaming: WHAT?!?!?!?!?!?!?!? Chris Salter: Alpha M. what are your thoughts on heei savers? I have shoes I like but
find that i overpronate. I take care of my shoes (ie polish, shoe trees).
Finding a good person to resole / reheel is becoming difficult. The shoe
repairer is slowly disappearing. Heel savers are found at your local
Walmart. Elijah Johnson: #astroboy772 Serene Alkathiri: Really lovely.. surely i will follow the steps and have one..
thank u for this video.. Harvey McCulloch: Do tacos Karl Conrad: Ohh the fanboy wars are heating up! Xristofor Ivanov: nise !!!
