    The plastic will work for a short time....eventually you will need to replace it. When that time comes, upgrading to some polycarbonate panels will provide some more strength to the house and some insulation.

    Oregon weather is just mostly wet. It maybe snows for a week on a heavy winter year, but for the most part the thick plastic is what it is (for us) given the fact we dont want it permanent.

    When I had my greenhouse the plastic would degrade from exposure to the sun's UV light...this would weaken it and the wind would cause it to tear. I could only get one season out of the plastic....and at $60 bucks a roll there would have been some long

    I wonder if you could use the poly panels by hanging them on hooks and securing them with a clasp at the bottom (or something like that) to make it portable and easily disassembled. You could work something out like that. I love it, and your hubby did

    what did U use for heating and what climate do U live in?
  • Nice!!! Heads up the plastic you use will dry out with weather very fast so I would do a second and third rapping, and the bulb will get very hot it self and not enough heat Home Depot or Walmart will have some small heater.... I love your husband

    What size wood did you use for framing? I really love this, looks easy to make and would be just what I need for Texas winters.
  • Truly both of you are doing an exceptional job towards betterment of our environment by building green house & saving crops from excess rainfall or heat. Hats off to your initiative towards saving our future generation from devastation.
