Greenhouse

Sheds aren’t the only structures we design and build. Gardeners and farmers also come to us looking for quality greenhouse structures of all shapes and sizes. Our greenhouses are precisely crafted by experts in gardening and construction, making them world-class.

About Our Greenhouses

Lapp Structures’ Amish built greenhouses are maintenance free, and feature 8mm twin-wall polycarbonate panels providing semi-diffused light, making them dual-use greenhouses. Our pressure-treated structural frame includes white vinyl exterior trim boards for years of maintenance free durability. Also included are two standard roof vents, one on either side.

While manual control of the roof vents is sufficient for hands-on gardeners in most cases, you can also research automatic opening methods for your greenhouse. We offer a solar-powered fan/vent package to achieve this purpose. The fan is thermostatically controller to increase airflow when the temperature inside the greenhouse reaches a preset level.

In place of vinyl trim, we also offer paintable MiraTec composite trim, which is moisture, rot and termite resistant. And if pressure-treated framing is a problem, Douglas Fir can be substituted as well.

Detached greenhouses are available in either a classic A-Frame or free-standing Lean-To architectural style. An attached greenhouse is available with just about any of our shed styles. You’ll be even more productive and have extra space in your garden shed or potting shed!

Whatever you imagine, we can build it. And as always, our work features a five-year guarantee from manufacturer defects and world class customer service.

Make It Yours

While the above specifications are standard across all of our structures, there are many opportunities to customize your Amish-built shed to ‘make it yours.’

  • For the roof, consider a dormer or cupola to give your outdoor building a unique look.
  • Opt for a cedar shake, ribbed metal or standing-seam metal roof to further customize its appearance.
  • We offer a plethora of siding options including beaded vinyl, HardiePlank, board-and-batten, and cedar shake.
  • Window options include insulated, wood sash, arched wood sash and transom windows.
  • Even the window shutters are customizable: choose from wood slat, vinyl raised panel or vinyl louvered options.
