What is the best kind of wood to use for a greenhouse?
Aluminum was my first choice, but it's so expensive now! I've looked at cedar, redwood, and treated wood. I don't want to use treated wood, because I'm concerned about the carcinogenic potential. Redwood is expensive, but I'm leaning in that direction. I'm concerned that the high humidity of a greenhouse will necessitate a resistant wood like redwood. What are your suggestions? Could I use an inexpensive wood and then paint it? If so, what kind of paint is safest?
Redwood, hands down. I had a custom greenhouse from a kit, and did the concrete foundation on my own. I hired a used car salesman and his pal to assemble the rest of it. Both men were contractors in the past. You can cut corners if you buy a kit. It was a beautiful greenhouse, and I just started growing my crops. Unfortunately, I got a divorce and had to move away. I now have a greenhouse that is built out of cheap, corrugated siding. It was a gift from a neighbor before he moved. Whenever I look at this greenhouse, I miss the glass and redwood one that I had to leave behind. If you are a serious gardener, get the best greenhouse that you can afford. Otherwise, you will not be happy.
