The easiest way to make a greenhouse or a greenhouse with their hands, which is available beginning summer residents - build it from the window frames.Very often, to cover greenhouses gardeners use plastic wrap.But the window frame - it is also a glass, but it is better at trapping heat and transmits light than film.Spring is especially important, because the days are not as long as in the summer.And the reliability of the film has its limits.

If the frame is long, it can be used as a single upper sash, actually I did, when I used the old frame of the loggia.In the presence of short frames can be set across a total greenhouse frame, and then get a few opening lids.Therefore, everyone decides for himself how it is more convenient to do.

Greenhouse of the window frames

Now you need to decide and the hull itself.If the greenhouse is operated for many years, and place it under a different time of the year, except in spring, it will not be used, it is best to do a major greenhouse.This means that his body better to lay brick.The upper part - the cover of the window frames can be made in a removable version for the winter clean up.If you can not make the body of the stone, it is made of a conventional board.

Greenhouse can be made as to the top of the slope to one side, and on the two.In the latter case in the middle need to provide stacking ridge beam.The slope of the upper surface of the need to ensure that it does not accumulate in the water (in the rain).If the slope is only one, you should orient the greenhouse so that the top of the slope, he was sent to the other side, where most of the day is the sun, then the seedlings and vegetables you will grow soon.

When installing a greenhouse is necessary, if possible, choose a place that is protected from the winds.The presence of a number of water sources must also be provided.As an option - to make the greenhouse as a continuation of some buildings in the area.If the frame is made of wood, you should take care about protection boards from rotting.Under the bottom is laid roofing and board themselves (lower part) would be good prosmolit - then serve as a framework for a long time.However, if the greenhouse make for a long time - make the base of the brick.My greenhouse is already 6 years old, and will stay on for at least as much, delighting family fresh vegetables in March.
