very nice good quality plans, the base of it will not rot anytime soon. (unlike out fence)

I suppose my only question:

Is there a reason you did not just put ground spikes in every corner. then measure and cut studs so they all met up perfectly on each ground stud?

once you have each corner you can support each joint on a ground stud. i guess the goal is eliminating cinderblocks and artificial beams where to patch with pices of wood on each side to make the beam.

I would stain and water seal my green house if i bothered to build it at all, plus it should last longer too if you ever plant to sell or sell the green house. (unlikely)

considering green houses can get very high humidity levels, its a perfect spot for mold and plant disease. i dont see any fans so not sure if you keep track of this ?

if unchecked humidity levels in a green house can easly pass 70% and shoot up to 80-100% greatly promotes plant diseases and mold. anything over 70% is the danger zone for mold and diseases.

i'm thinking if you don't keep the humidity in check you might even get some condensation on the plastic then it would get soaked up by the wood or just moisture in general in the air would seek the dry wood.

most green houses are equipped with air circulation, fan-jet or horizontal
air flow, systems. it also helps the plants by mimicking the wind. it moves the plants leafs around and it helps them to capture fresh co2.
