For all in this great forum, Do you buy a Greenhouse or do you build one?

Built ours. Couldn't afford to buy the one we wanted, so we designed, sourced and built it ourselves.

Built one with leftovers and scrap from our whole house remodel.

If you want to save money you can build one yourself, if you want to grow in the winter, I recommend buying one.

We built one 5 years ago from recycled old windows it grows great peppers, and tomatoes. but when winter comes in only kale... and cold hardy plants grow in there.

Well, I bought two last year and both were destroyed by our high winds so next we are building a heavy-duty greenhouse. I exchanged emails with Growers Solutions and our best option is building our own.

Both! Built our first 12x48 lean to on our home. Then several years later bought a free standing kit greenhouse. What a project!!! Wish we had built the second greenhouse from our own plans!

I bought a Yoderbilt, but if I were doing it again, I would build instead. It would be easier to get the water and power, as well as gas. It would cost more, but not that much more.
