With Instructables you can share what you make with the world, and tap into an ever-growing community of creative experts. Thanks to my father for introducing me to this style of shelving, and who built a particularly fine example (using stained fir 2x4s and 2x12s, black washers, and brass acorn nuts) which is at least 25 years old and still in use. We'd been meaning to build these for over a year to replace a bulky entertainment center plus some cobbled together shelving for our TV wall. The 2x2s would be strong enough, but there might not be enough contact area between the upright and the shelf. The shelves are clamped tightly between the uprights, and the friction between them keeps it rigid. Most greenhouse designs are overly complicated with lengthy instructions and steel engineering that makes them unaffordable to most people wishing to have something in their backyard to grow their seedlings or indeed even a basic shelter to cover their aquaponic systems from the rain, wind, birds and insects.
All you need are around 8 star pickets and a length of thick industrial strength irrigation pipe to make a Greenhouse of approximately 3 meters by 7 metres.
Buy the taller steel picket and hammer them into location in your desired spot in the backyard.
The polypipe Rosina uses fits snugly over the picket and slides down about half the length of the picket.
Surprisingly there is enough tension to support most bird netting or greenhouse shade cloth. The beauty of building your greenhouse this way is that you can change the shape and length to fit any shape in the garden.
Rosina has some very creative uses for the polypipe and some people use them as a trellis for all kinds of climbing plants. These dome shaped constructions certainly required a little bit more work but as mobile chicken coops they are light enough for one or two people to move and drag around the garden with chickens intact.
These structures are great, but I have a problem finding the 50mm polypipe in reasonable lengths around here. Hi Darren, you are correct the 50mm poly-pipe is expensive to buy in 100m and even 50m lengths. I have found a few places around my area (central Vic) that are happy to sell it by the meter, if you see a farmer working in a vineyard or something similar stop and ask if they know any suppliers that sell by the meter. Bear in mind, you’ll need a ute or trailer to transport it home, and tied down with ropes.
For whatever reason there is just something so appealing about working with your hands and the idea of building your own home.
I can imagine that the sense of accomplishment and pride in building something like this would be immense.
I would love this for my back yard, I am a quilter and that would be great for my workshop. For any farmer planning to start raising chickens should need to know whether a plastic chicken coop is the right method to use.
