Food costs these days are outrageous and only growing more each day. Recently, during a two month period between June and July alone, the cost of consumer products rose by more than 1.5 percent across the board, with nearly a 2 percent increase in food costs, according to the Federal Reserve. Added to rising fuel costs and a global food crisis and the costs just continue to rise. So, the prospect of building your own greenhouse and growing your own fruits and vegetables is probably starting to sound more and more viable and like a great way to bypass though prohibitive costs. Of course there is a myriad of issues that needs to be dealt with by anyone seeking to save money with a greenhouse.

This book, by walking you through every step of the process in building and taking advantage of your own green house, seeks to layout those issues and ensure you have as easy a time as possible without any surprises. You will learn the various principles of greenhouse use and the different types of greenhouses you can use depending on your location and the specific needs you may have. Learn how to select a proper site and to set a foundation that will hold the greenhouse effectively in place regardless of weather conditions throughout the year and maintain the heat generated in the greenhouse. Learn how to frame your green house and how to effectively glaze the glass. Learn what kinds of ventilation are needed and what forms of supplemental heat, insulation, and heat sinking you will need to acquire for your greenhouse.

Greenhouse and plant experts have been interviewed and their insights have been added to this book to help you make the right decisions about which kind of greenhouse is best for you and how to prepare it. Learn how to effectively install the necessary plumbing, wiring, and other amenities your greenhouse needs. Learn what is needed for shutters and shades and how to install cold frames and hotbeds. Learn how to install hoop houses, attached greenhouses, and freestanding greenhouses and the differences between each of them. For anyone seeking a means and the details needed to install their greenhouse, this book will walk you through every necessary step.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Much more than just `building a glass box' 14. Januar 2011
Von Vicki Liston - Veröffentlicht auf
"The Complete Guide to Building Your Own Greenhouse" is a comprehensive look at the myriad of considerations that must be addressed in order to build and maintain a successful greenhouse. Items such as location, typical climate, surrounding structures, amount of time and money to be allocated, building materials, types of plants to be raised, and much more are only some of the items author Craig Baird says need to be decided on before a single tool is picked up. He provides an enormous wealth of information as well as lessons learned and advice from the experts so that even the simplest and least expensive greenhouses can be efficient and flourish. Once he details some greenhouse history and the various pre-construction considerations, he walks the reader step-by-step through plans that range from easy to expert.

One of the drawbacks of the book is that the author does not include pictures with each of his plans; many of the plans note only descriptions of the required steps which make it difficult to imagine what exactly the author's intended end result is suppose to look like. Further, there are some minor `holes' in his step descriptions - minor in that it may not make a difference in the overall construction but still mildly irritating. For example, page 263 discusses replacing a hinge and calls for `golf tees (optional)' in his supply list. However, as he goes through the steps of taking off an old hinge and putting on a new one, he never once mentions why or how the golf tees are used.

"The Complete Guide to Building Your Own Greenhouse" is a fantastic read for both beginning and expert gardeners looking to extend their plants' growing season. The book gives plenty for the would-be greenhouse gardener to think about so that they can go into a construction project or kit purchase and hopefully avoid any negative or progress-halting surprises. Written with a clear, simplistic, and enthusiastic style, even a novice can quickly learn the basic concepts and start planning a project immediately. "The Complete Guide to Building Your Own Greenhouse" is a quick and easy read and leaves you with the motivation and inspiration to get started right away!

1.0 von 5 Sternen Inadequate 14. März 2013
Von AlasCat - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
If you had never given a thought about building a greenhouse this might be mildly helpful, but for anyone else you'll find it annoyingly elementary. But critical information is completely absent. For example, ventilation is a key component of greenhouses. Fan or no fan? How much ventilation? How many CFM for a give square foot in a give climate zone? Damper controls? Locations of dampers? Absolutely no guidance is given. Similar vague treatment of pretty much every other topic.

There are many good greenhouse books out there. And lots of free guidance on the web. Spend your resources in those areas.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Useful plans but content is hard to read 28. November 2011
Von H. Roth - Veröffentlicht auf
Typically I'm a big fan of Atlantic Publishing books. In this case however, if you want a book that lives up to its mission to tell you everything you need to know in an understandable manner, this isn't the book for you. This is perhaps influenced by the writer whose background doesn't seem to include specific credentials or experience regarding greenhouses. The author clearly researched the needs or greenhouses and owners.

Unfortunately the information for a first-time greenhouse owner is hard to mine from this source. Lengthy sentences and a pedantic tone reduce the pleasure in reading and learning about your new hobby. Most beginners, for whom this series is designed, will be better served by finding books that area easier to read, faster to absorb and simply more entertaining. Perhaps future editions will benefit from some additional editing. In addition, it would be helpful to have illustrations from a variety of sources rather than primarily from one provider.

You may still find this book to be a great resource. For those who want to construct their own greenhouse, the plans, equipment lists and other details are perfect. Each plan is presented in perfect detail--you even get a detailed shopping list that makes getting all the supplies you need simple. The instructions are clear, step-wise and easy to follow. What the prose in this book lacks, the blue-print part of this book makes up. The middle of the book and resources at the end offer an extensive selection of plans for free-standing, attached to a structure, and even a window-box extensive plan.

Each reader needs to decide what matters to them: for those seeking plans this could be a great investment. The plans range from small greenhouses just a few feet square up to those appropriate for individuals with a bit of acreage for placement. Persons who learn by reading will be better served by other choices.

I just moved to the mountains and needed a versatile guide that was both easy to understand and gave me alot of choices. This book filled all my needs and offered lots and lots of pictures. I am not a carpenter or a designer just a determined female who now has the tools to build a greenhouse. My neighbor is a carpenter by trade and was also impressed by this book. He keeps borrowing it!!!!! Virginia Hawkins Glennville California

3.0 von 5 Sternen Too basic for an average do it yourselfer 11. März 2013
Von kb6cla - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
If you already know which end of the screwdriver is sharp this one is probably not for you. This book is very, VERY basic. I did find the history of greenhouses very interesting but the rest of the book is way beneath even an average do it yourself type who already has some understanding of the purpose and function of a greenhouse. It's a low grade trade format on cheap paper with grainy black and white photos, so does not even provide inspirational photos to spur your creativity.
