Another winter MikeHNT thinking about building a greenhouse.Standard, polycarbonate, seemed to him boring, glass did not want to mess around.Then forumchanin and remembered geosotah.On the Internet, I found a interesting images, found calculator to calculate the structural elements of the building looked rollers.After studying the information MikeHNT concluded that geodesic dome - the most cute and close to him an option for greenhouses.
Geodesic Dome was invented by American architect and inventor Richard Fuller.The design is famous for special durability, ease and speed of assembly.In this framework, you can build a variety of buildings: cottages, greenhouses, pavilions, winter gardens, shelters for the pool.And they can build a small brigade forces and the use of small amounts of building materials.
forumchanin had to solve three problems: how to make a base from which to build a spherical cage and the top to close it.To protect the base from rotting, MikeHNT decided to cast it in concrete.Hemi
spring came earlier ordered pumping elements.Summer MikeHNT started construction.Himself to help, he hired two assistants, who will explain how to make an icosahedron using matches and clay.Sharpness workers immediately went to work: marked out the base, cut the boards for the frame.
Be careful when cooking bars for the frame.The slightest error in size will lead to the fact that the scope is not will close!
After preparing the collected first level geosoty.The first hemisphere was collected fast enough, but the second - faster.During the construction of the second hemisphere we decided to move to another place.With these three people have coped in half an hour: the frame was light and had a sufficient rigidity.
input part of the greenhouse carried outside the cell.Formwork made of OSB, but had to tinkering by pouring extra props.Therefore MikeHNT advises using a metal tape.
poured concrete, filled with black soil beds, painted frame and stitched his cut to size polycarbonate.Each greenhouse made of two windows for ventilation.Immediately it was purchased and planted seedlings: the owner hoped to harvest in the current year.
In the operation of greenhouses there were a number of problems, which are not thought of in advance.First of all, it turned out that plants that are grown in the greenhouse, you need a certain amount of water is not much and not enough.Also vegetables needed additional lighting and ventilation.Despite the fact that the plants grown in a closed space, appearing pests.It was possible, and make fertilizer, and weed beds.Despite all the difficulties, tomatoes, peppers, corn, squash, and other green wards survived, blossomed and gave the ovary.
This inspired MikeHNT to further feats: beautiful greenhouses clash with unimproved land.The owners bought the tiller, to lay a pipe for supplying water to the greenhouse, and with it - the electric cable.They dug up the earth, brought sand and black earth, paved walkway tiles.
