Greenhouse advice please!

KMS WoodworksDouglas Hunt360 Sod (Donna Dixson)


I'm looking for a greenhouse to overwinter tropicals as well as starting plants for spring. What would be my best option, a kit or building one out of pvc pipe? I'm concerned about keeping it cool in the summer and warm in the winter without spending a fortune. My husband built me a greenhouse when we lived in California, he made it out of wood and polycarbonate panels, it was pretty but it never really worked, it was either too hot or too cold. I know someone will ask - I used fans and drip system in the summer and heater in the winter.
I should also mention that I was looking at an 8x12 kit with opaque panels from Costco.
