Hi, i'm looking to build a greenhouse in my backyard very soon as a project. Does anyone have experience in DIY greenhouses? And would anyone recommend a professional greenhouse plan (design)? Thanks!

There are so many DIY designs online. Have you googled them? First you need to decide the size you want and whether it will have any actual cement foundation. From there, the sky's the limit.

Google and YuoTube are your friends, there are hundreds of DIY forums out there as well where people are doing this or have done it and have posted step by step guides as well. Remember to think, map, estimate, correct and then start. You will need some big toold for the job, those you can get on rent from one of the construction equipment rental companies at the Home Depot.

Have you looked at some of the kits out there? Price ranges vary, of course, but you can go from simple protected shelving to small buildings.

I found some interesting small buildings at Tractor Supply and Harbor Freight.
