Very nice! Who did you order from?

I have one 30x48x18 greenhouse and I am about to order another 8x50x12. First I got from Envirotech, and the second I am getting from Fartech. Hope you didn't go with Envirotech.......
Shit I went with envirotech. What's up with them?

This is my busy season with my day job so the construction has been languishing. Hope to have the trusses, cable x bracing and roof supports complete this weekend and will start hanging skin next week.

Don't know about enviro tech but if you follow what I did, be sure to ask for roof trusses at the end walls or you just get a flimsy top chord....

Here's a pic of the truss you want. They include these trusses for interior columns, but the end walls don't get them... not a biggie if you're building a gh with several bays, but for just a one bay (like mine)design, which in fairness I didn't pay the 2K for stamped drawings, you need more beef in the structure, especially if you go with 14' sidewalls

Hell yes my man. My head room should end up being 12' underneath the light dep system ... don't really want to be fishing the colas out of the monofilament shade wire stuff though... how tall do you think she'd get in A 45g air pot?

That all depends on veg time. I'd expect a couple pounds from that size though,

Still grinding it out - got trusses fabbed, painted (couldn't find galvanized on the shelf) and installed. 7 structural pieces left then girts, then skin.... I see the light at the end of the tunnel...

Let me guess, the state said you can only grow 6 plants so you decided to grow 10 pound trees? :D

Instead of a traditional greenhouse with rows and shelves you could build an oasis with a water feature in the middle, sort of a hippy style hang out.

Dude, I like that idea. I do plan to be spending a lot of time in there - good for my mental health :)

It doesn't look like much progress from the last shot, but it's another good 5-6 hours worth of fab & install. The (3) intermediate columns are going in tomorrow rain or shine.... then all that's left is the ridge beam and 2 lateral supports at the roof..... ridge is the last hurdle, I'm going to try to do it without a man lift. Once the purlins are framed in on the structure, should be able to use extension ladders and actually crawl up into my trusses to do the connecting..... I build sturdy

Haha... I don't know my neighbors - didn't ask them what they think... I bought a house w/ no HOA on purpose and what I am doing is within code and doesn't require a permit
I like your style!
