greenhouse Greenhouse Build Tip?

Hey guys. This weekend I plan to start a little project to build a small greenhouse to store 20 or so plants. Does anyone have any tips or pointers before either start? Like do I need a vent?
 
Yes you need a vent and a fan or you'll fry the plants. It's also a good idea to have a vent open automatically so you don't get busy and forget. You may also need a shade cloth when it get hotter later in the year.
 
Good Luck and once you have a small one you'll be hooked.

Thanks!
 
I plan to make a shade layer that can be attached and removed when needed. 
 
Probably wont make this a walk in greenhouse as I am buying a house within a few months and need to make something that is portable right now. 
 
Ventilation by pulling up the sides,and letting a clip hold the plastic to the pole,or a makeshift roller on the end to roll it up3/4ft.
 
Google roll up side and you will see what i mean.
 
Build it as large as you can --- if you build it small (ie. small greenhouse to store 20 or so plants) you'll wind up wishing you had built it larger when you run out of space before plants - and much easier to leave unused space inside than fit more in a too small of space !
 
Well it's almost done. Just need to buy the hinges to finish the roof which will be a double sided hinged roof.
