Greenhouse Design Options

Our greenhouse designs offer several different sizes and design styles to help you find the perfect greenhouse for your yard and garden. The large 10x12 Greenhouse is a saltbox style that has a translucent roofing material over a large part of the roof. The 6x8 and 8x8 Greenhouse designs use a more conventional construction and have lots of windows and a full translucent roof to let in plenty of sunshine.

Building your own greenhouse is a great way to add value to your yard or garden and create a quiet space to work on your growing projects. Find the perfect greenhouse plans by clicking on the More Info Buttons above and reading about each of our greenhouse designs.

Planting Tables

Planting tables are an integral part of any greenhouse. They are designed to hold your plants up high enough for you to take care of the plants without bending over. Our planting table design uses pressure treated lumber to reduce the chance of wood rot from the moisture associated with the plants. The boards on the planting table top are separated by a 1/2 inch gap to allow water to run easily off the table. Using this design you can water your plants right on the table top.

The plans come with details showing how to build the work table along the interior greenhouse walls.

Greenhouse Door

The door on these greenhouse plans is specified as a pre-hung, full lite door which gives the entrance to the greenhouse a light and airy feeling but still keeps out the elements.

Cottage Greenhouse Designs

The two garden style sheds offer a greenhouse and yard storage space. By building planting tables in front of the walls of windows you can create a great space to work on and grow plants.

Water Shedding Greenhouse Floors

The greenhouse floor is another part of the greenhouse that gets plenty of water on it. All of our backyard greenhouse designs come with a treated 2x4 floor design to allow water to flow through the floor decking when watering plants on the work tables. The boards on used to build the floor are separated by a 1/2 inch gap to allow water to easily drain off the floor.

Type of Planing In A Greenhouse

There are many different ways to use a greenhouse. They are used for everything from starting plants in the early spring to be used in the yard or garden to having a place to grow plants year round. There are several types of growing that are done in a greenhouse.

Hydroponics is a system of growing plants without soil. The roots are bathed in nutrient rich water which allows them to grow without soil. A greenhouse is the perfect place to grow hydroponically because you can control the enviroment during all seasons of the year.

Planting in soil is the traditional way of growing plants. A greenhouse provides a warm and sunny enviroment for the plants to grow, even in the winter. Every region has its own climate so you will need to adjust the times you grow to you local conditions.

Greenhouse Roofing

The corrugated translucent roofing and siding material is sold at most home stores or a local roofing supplier. It is easy to cut and install and will provide any greenhouse with increased sun shine inside to keep plants happy and growing.

Building your Wood Greenhouse

There are a few questions that should be answered when starting any shed building project to make sure that you end up without any major suprises. These include:

  • How big of a greenhouse do I need?
  • Where will the greenhouse be build on your property?
  • What style of greenhouse do you want and need?
  • How will the greenhouse be oriented on the property?
  • How will the traffic flow to and around the greenhouse? How will it work in relation to the yard and garden?
  • Are there any city or county building requirements that will affect the construction of the greenhouse?

"Thanks for the designs!  They were especially useful since I didn't have any construction experience prior to this. Obviously, I made some modifications with the finishing, but I am quite happy with the size and structure of the shed." Matt

"Thank you Chris for the super service. The plans look great and I can't wait to get started." Frank

"I think these shed plans are great. I am very handy, but it is nice to have plans with measurements that are easy to follow. Most plans are to detailed, and confusing. I will prefab shed in garage, then in early spring put together. Thank you very much." Paul

"Hi. So I bought your plans and built the shed. Worked great, I would say 10/10...
Very easy to read the plans, very easy to make by following the steps in the "how to build a shed book" that comes with the plans. Overall, a very satisfied customer." Martin

"I just purchased your shed plans for the 6x8 Lean To Shed.  The quality of the plans is top-notch...  Thanks for the quick reply!  The quality to price ratio of your shed plan products is incredible.  Not to mention your awesome support.  I will most certainly be recommending icreatables shed plans to anyone I know who is interested in having a shed! Thanks again,"
Sean

"Thanks, Christopher. These plans and material lists are very complete, clear and easy to follow. Very nice work." Van

"AWESOME CUSTOMER SUPPORT…" John

"I promised to send a photo of my completed shed.  My wife and I are very happy with the way it turned out.  The plans were exactly what I needed to get going...  It was a lot of work, but I learned a lot and it was fun.  Thanks for your help." Mike

"Your plans were very helpful. It was well worth the small price I paid for the extra help. Thanks." Robert

"Hi Guys, I built this shed as a well house and it is terrific, even though I have never been anything close to a carpenter. I have arthritis so I used screws everywhere but the roof, and I believe it will be stronger for it.

"Our shed looks great, thanks to your plans." Donald
 
"I had already paid out twelve dollars and change to another do it yourself website and was totally unhappy with the plans I got. Luckly I found your website and paid less for somthing ten times better. Thanks." Allen

"I have received (the plans), and they look wonderful!  Can't wait to get started (next week for sure!)  Thank you so much!" Phil

"BTW - so far after reviewing I'm thoroughly impressed with what you've done here in the attachments. For someone like me who isn't "handy" you've made it very easy for me to tackle." Fran

"Yes I did (receive the plans) ...freakin awesome! Thanks again!!" Jessi

"I finally finished my 8x12 shed! The plans worked out great. I deviated from the plans slightly on roof edge and the door.  I plan to put gutters and down spouts on it and we wanted a little more of a country barn door look. I really appreciated the templates for cutting the notches for the rafters.  Detailing which nails I needed for each phase of the build was also very helpful. Thanks again," Dale

"I really like the instructions, they are much more than I expected." Randy

"Thank you for your input.  I just purchased the 4x4GN-generator-shed-plans.  Wow. The plans look fantastic. And the parts list is very nice!  I plan to modify it with 2 or 3 side doors for extra ventilation as needed. Thanks again for your time." Vern

"I like the idea of constructing the unit from scratch, what I call stick building it piece by piece - we've seen the lightweight think plastic walled units from (a home store), ok I guess but the heavier wooden unit with permanent roofing will last longer and give better service.   It was a good plan and easy to build from, I don't think  the contractor had any difficulties with it." Gary

"I purchased your plans for a 12 x 12 shed w/garage door. Your plans were great and I'm very pleased with the results.
I also used your free "how to build a ramp" plans which were very helpful." Regards, Donald

"Hello!  Our Shed project went swimmingly well this weekend! The only thing you’ll notice we did different was to order the doors from a lumberyard rather than building them…. Which worked out pretty well.  Thanks for your help!" Maureen

"Got them. I'm very pleased with plans."
Thanks. Timothy

"Great shed plans, the material list helped a lot as well!"
Sincerely, Jeff

"Thanks very much!  Great service and good prices.  I'll be buying more plans from you in the future!" Cheers, Darren

"It to me a year of intermittent sweat swearing and blood, but I finished it, and I'm proud of it. Thanks for the awesome shed plans!" Jessica

"I recently helped a family member build an 8x12 shed using plans he bought from your site and found the plans and materials list to be very helpful.  I'm about to start a project building my own storage building, a 12x20, and thought I'd buy plans from you as well since his went so smoothly." David

"I was sceptical about buying shed plans online but your extremely customer service and willingness to provide extra help to a "newbie" have won me over. Thank you.
Be well,"
Jonah
