The answer really depends upon how much you want to invest in your hobby greenhouse. You can purchase kits to construct onsite or you can hire a contractor. You can use rigid plastic or glass. First you'll need to decide what style greenhouse do you want - Arch, Quonset, Gabled, Atrium, Lean-to, Oval, Round, Installed against house, Freestanding, Portable, etc. and what features you want in your greenhouse: Benches, Shade cloth, Misting system, Heating, Lighting, Insulation, Automatic window openers, Ceiling Fan, Line voltage thermostat, Hi-low recording thermometer, Exhaust fan w/louvers, Glass storm door, Plumbing/water, Gutters, etc. You might want to do a little research via the internet or books from the library to get an idea of what might work best in your yard. Good luck with your project!
