There are many greenhouse styles. A free-standing greenhouse stands on its own and can be located anywhere. Lean-to greenhouses are attached to the wall of a building and are easier to heat because one side is a solid wall. Regardless, greenhouse should be tall enough for you and your plants. More info.
Greenhouse installation is a very specialized process, and the overall cost is dependent on the options you select. Just like anything else, your most cost effective option is to hire professionals that have the experience necessary to see your project to fruition. Budgetary numbers for new construction usually fall in the range of KES 1300 (13 USD) to KES 1800 (18 USD) per square meter for high-tech greenhouses.
A good greenhouse structure must handle wind, rain, and snow (where applicable), and allow for benches, shelves, hanging baskets, light fixtures and other accessories, such as heaters, coolers and fans. We have 7 years of experience behind our designs. To keep moisture from dripping on you and your plants, condensation control is handled with a smooth inside roof surface and sufficient roof pitch. Top-opening roof vents provide natural, gentle, quiet venting. Combining top vents with base wall vents and/or louvered windows, hot air exits through the roof and cooler air flows in down low, which helps preserve humidity. Roof vents could be automated. We have Sturdy-built designs so we make sure you get the best design features for your situation.

Select a greenhouse as large as your site and budget will allow. Greenhouse gardeners inevitably wish they had more space to accommodate their growing plants. Adequate height is important for your comfort as well as providing room for shelves and hanging plants. Additional growing space can be provided with a shorter base wall that allows for more under-shelf growing space as well as shelves along the walls.
Only your local building department can tell you for sure. This is normally an agency within the city or county government. Call them and let them know the size and type of structure you are planning on building. Compliance is the responsibility of the buyer Smaller hobby style greenhouses (under 120 square feet) typically do not require building permits. If a permit is required you also might have to provide a certified engineering drawing to the building officials before you can obtain one. If required, we can supply, for an additional charge, certified engineering prints and calculations for most of our greenhouses. Note: It is important that this be done prior to ordering the structure. You alone are responsible to make sure that you are building in accordance with your local codes. We will do our best to help you through this process

Sturdi-built draws on our 7 years of experience to set you up with the proper equipment for your situation depending on the location and climate of the area. This usually includes: Circulating fan: Air movement is essential for a healthy greenhouse environment and helps reduce heating costs and condensation. We recommend continuous, gentle air movement 24/7 provided by an oscillating fan. Heater: Type and size of heater depends of the size of the greenhouse and the inside and outside temperatures involved. Gas (natural or LP, vented or non- vented) or electric (120V or 240V) heaters can be used. To make a 120V heater more effective add an additional thermostat to turn the heater on and off at specific temperatures. Coolers: In very hot climates sometimes positive cooling is needed. Air conditioners de-humidify the greenhouse, so we recommend evaporative air coolers which draw hot air through wet pads using a fan or blower. Water evaporates from the pads, providing cool, clean, humid air. Humidifier or mister: Plants need adequate humidity in a hot greenhouse. Generally, wetting down a porous (bricks, gravel) floor is the easiest method for creating humidity. An automatic humidifier or a misting/fogging system may be added if more humidity is desired. Shading: Depending on sun exposure and plants being grown shading might be needed. Ways to shade include shade cloth, shading paint, roll-up shades and fiberglass panels. We recommend custom-fit shade cloth panels added to all or part of the greenhouse. Attached onto the outside of the greenhouse, they are effective, neat in appearance, reusable and available in a variety of densities. Propagation Mats: With good bottom heat, propagation is easy and fast, even in a cool greenhouse. Propagation mats are great for supplying heat to plants in containers. Shelves & Benches: Generally some type of benches and/or shelves are needed. Many options are available and depend on the size and style of your
