Post #722029

I've owned commercial-built greenhouses, and I have built and owned some from scratch. I believe the one I have now is about the best you can get for the money - for several reasons.

1) It is very strong, and will withstant virtually any amount of snow or wind.

2) It is less costly than the commercial models.

3) While not "portable" it can be disassembled and moved.

4) The Layout was planned by a man who is really expert in time management and volume production.

5) Built-in continuous ventilators running the length of the roof and along the walls make electric fans unnecessary.

6) If 8 or 10 mil dual or triple-wall polycarbonate is used, it is very efficient to heat.

The plans are 18 pages in PDF, viewable in Adobe Acrobat. I am happy to post them to this website, if someone can tell me how.

Meanwhile, I've included a picture along with this post.

Good building!

Dr. Jacob Mittleider, who taught me, has built these all over - in 27 countries - and he discovered that many folks don't have or can't afford electricity. He also knew from his 20 years as a nurseryman that good air movement was essential and heat rises, so he designed the greenhouse with 1/2 of the roof taller than the other, and an 18" gap between.

By putting the greenhouse plastic - or polycarbonate - depending on what you're covering it with there,attached at the top and on hinges (polycarb), it can be raised varying amounts to adjust the amount of air, and will very quickly cool a greenhouse that is getting too warm.

In very warm weather the same concept is applied to one or both side walls, to give almost total ventilation, and no heat build-up in the summer.

Jim, this looks like a good plan. I would love to see the entire Adobe document. To steer us to it, you need to open that page on your computer, highlight the web address in the address bar, click on Edit, then copy. Then open this thread and hit Edit, then paste. It will show up as a Hyperlink and should take readers to the website when they click on it. Give it a try! Thanks!

I have sent the file with the greenhouse plans to 4 or 5 people, but I may have missed a couple of you who wanted to see them.

Please - anyone who wants the file - send your email address and I will send them along.

You can also find them here on the DavesGarden site somewhere. I sent them to Dave and he said he would post them where everyone can get at them, but Idon't know where that might be.

If anyone finds them, I would appreciate your letting me know.

Hi Jim,

I got the plans that you emailed to me and just wanted to say THANK YOU!!! I am only going to use the plans for my own yard... finally an easy plan for a sturdy greenhouse that my husband is even excited about!

We probably won't build it until Spring but I will try to post pictures when we do.

Angela:
I'm happy for you. Depending on where you live you will want to consider the relative benefits of using 6 mil UV greenhouse plastic, or dual or triple wall polycarbonate.

The polycarb will give you much better insulation against extreme cold, but it is much more costly to purchase.

Jim, I too received the file and want to thank you. I am particularly interested in the roof vents. We are planning an addition to my current greenhouse and think this feature can be incorporated. Also we will completely insulate the north wall and the raised section of roof, because we have absolutely no direct light from that side. If painted white inside, it should reflect the light pretty well. I have a Northern Lights GH now that is insulated on the north and am very happy with it. Would buy another one, but the price has doubled since I got mine!

Jim,

I just now requested the greenhouse plans PDF in a separate email. Is the wood in the framework of the greenhouse treated wood? A lot of greenhouses use an aluminum frame with the idea that it won't rot or rust.

With respect to the wood issue, I discovered recently that the pressure treated wood here in our local Augusta, Maine Home Depot is treated with a copper arsenic compound and each piece of the wood has a red warning tag stapled to the end grain. The tags warns of the poisonous nature of the arsenic and warns against skin contact and warns that the arsenic can leach out into surrounding soil (in the case of the landscape timbers).

I also heard that it will be illegal to sell the arsenic treated wood in the United States after the end of this year and that the new treated wood will use something "presumably" safer.

I put "presumably" in quotes because back in the 70's when I had a big Fort Worth garden, I used railroad ties as an edging for the garden. They were used and well-weathered, but they had been pressure treated with creosote (which seemed to go all the way through the ties) and the creosote was later said to be carcinogenic.

I am surprised I am still alive. As a kid it was my job to paint the interior of the chicken house with creosote to control poultry mites. I even took some cough syrup (Creomulsion I believe it was called) and cough drops that had creosote as an ingredient, and later used a bath soap and antidandruff shampoo that contained creosote.

During the 70's and, I think, the 80's, the lumberyards were selling pressure treated lumber that contained pentachlorophenol or some such thing. Later "penta" was found to be carcinogenic and taken off the market.

As kids on the farm, we sprayed our irish potato plants with arsenate of lead to control potato bugs and larvae. What a double whammy! Arsenic and lead. And both are cumulative poisons. The times they are a'changin'. Hopefully for the better.

But so far, no safe pressure treatment for wood has been found. That is why I am a little skeptical that the new 2004 treated wood will be safe. Hopefully they have finally "got it right." Anyhow, that is why I do have some concerns with the wooden frame for the greenhouse.

here in the deep south, Cypress is cheap, available and suitable for most building projects requiring weather resistant/rot proof wood.

As far as where it touches the ground, that is easily solved.
dig a three-four foot deep hole for the post, pour 4inches of gravel, and than pour a concrete pad in the hole for the post. set the post on the hardened concrete and pour concrete around the post... thus no dirt really sits against the wood.
a little creativity goes a long way.

Burton, your stories remind me of my fathers tales of how they'd spray ddt on themselves to repel mosquitos... I'm sure it worked pretty well tho despite the obvious health issues.

I pour a small cement footing, put a metal stirrup in it, then place the 4 X 4 wood in that stirrup. Therefore the wood never touches the ground. Also, we recommend you paint the wood white - which reflects more light, and helps preserve it as well.

Jim,

This is a greenhouse I finished building last spring. I got some awnings from a building teardown. When my husband and I saw the awnings lying by the dumpster I asked him, "what do those look like to you?", he said they looked "like a bunch of tents." (He doesn't garden, , , doesn't go camping either come to think of it). I tho't they looked like a greenhouse roof,,, and I was right. As soon as the green canvas was removed and the frame was painted white and covered with plastic, and many other steps were completed, it became a 12 X 20 greenhouse.

I wish your wife a speedy recovery, and my best wishes to both of you for a wonderful 2004.

Polycarb comes in 2 ft wide rigid pieces, so maybe you could build the new one inside the old one and take down the flexable plastic once the new stuff was in place.

For those of you in cold climates - even up into Canada - you can make the greenhouse very weather-tight and inexpensive to heat by using dual or triple-wall polycarbonate on the outside, and then lining the inside of the greenhouse with 6-mil greenhouse plastic.

Another "trick" is to start your seeds in a smaller "greenhouse" within the greenhouse. section off a small portion with plastic and put the heater in that. An area large enough for 4-6 flats can get an awful lot of vegetables growing with little heat wasted.

Once they are up and growing, they need less heat than they do for germinating.

The picture is a large greenhouse of the Mittleider design at 54 degrees North latitude in Russia. Anyone care for tomatoes?

The greenhouse made from the plans that are posted here on Daves Garden can grow 10,000 plants at a time. Anyone into it that big?

If not, the one pictured, which is only 1/4 as big as the plans, will grow 2,000 plants at a time. That's enough to plant a mighty fine home garden.

From: "Joe Kennard"
Subject: Death in the Family

It is with much sadness that I inform the group that Eleanor Kennard, the beloved wife of Jim Kennard, passed away last night.

Eleanor and Jim have fought a long and courageous battle with Breast Cancer for several years and today she is released from the intense suffering she has been enduring.

I wonder if anyone here would know how I can get a copy of the greenhouse plans he offered last year.

I sure would appreciate it if I could get them. I don't think there is any other way I could afford a green house. Being retired limits my income. Any and all help would be appreciated.

It is too late in this year for me to get it going. I am looking forward to next spring or perhaps next summer before construction begins. I have too many irons in the fire for now...(I always do..so what is new)

When the project is going, I will post about it.

I would love a hoop house now...just for little ol me so maybe you can post about how that is going. I haven't built any kind of greenhouse yet...and the big one Jim's plans are for is not entirely for myself...

Has anyone built this??

My hoop house has three walls and wasn't completed before a windstorm blew it over like a kite. The plastic was all torn up and my husband jsut threw in the towel and said we needed to "move up" before we even finished this one. I will need to have a greenhouse this winter and am certainly considering building this one.

Anyone else do this lately?

I know I looked for them awhile back and can't remember if I found them or not. I did find this on the web. http://www.foodforeveryone.org/about/9/about-us There is a place on the top right to join and get the free plans.

I belong to Jim's Mittleiders gardening form. I just emailed him and asked him to send me the plans. If and when I get them if you want them let me know.

Badseed, I joined and requested a copy of the plans.

If for some reason I don't get them, I'll trade you something if you will get a copy made for me. I'll get back with you.

I am really enjoying the MittleiderMethodGardening list. Not too much traffic but thats a good thing in my book and I'm learning something new all the time.

I signed up, didn't receive the greenhouse plans but did receive about 10 e-mails today. I unsubscribed. I'm not growing veggies.

SB, could you email the plans to me. I don't want to get into a lot of junk mail over this and it sounds like that's what the deal is with joining the group at the posted link. Thanks. Jaime

Can't find any link anywhere. Even on Growfood.com the link that says "greenhouse plans" really ISN'T. It's just greenhouse info. I joined Dave's for the Mittleider plans and now can't find them anywhere. I am hoping someone can help or I've just spent 20.00 I could've spent on Mittleider books/ebooks.

I am going to try one like this also. I have windows and sliding doors to put in it instead of the plastic. Just need to get it started.
