The Traditional 8X12 is one of the most popular and longest-selling greenhouse models from Cross Country Greenhouses, a top premium builder in North America for 60 years. It features an extremely durable, heavy duty aluminum frame, and at 8X12, it provides plenty of space for your growing needs. The West Coast architectural straight eave design enhances any yard and will provide your family years of enjoyment.

Designed to withstand heavy snow loads and high winds, the Traditional uses nearly unbreakable fivewall polycarbonate for the roof glazing and side walls. This strong 16mm polycarbonate is UV protected and provides 62% light transmission and a strong R value of 3.03 for the perfect growing environment.

The energy efficient fivewall polycarbonate retains heat effectively while diffusing light to prevent plants from burning. Traditional greenhouses feature a 23 degree roof slope that easily sheds snow and allows for an increased interior height, while matching the design of many neighboring structures. This design has been sold by the manufacturer for 55 years now. 

Built to order and easy to assemble, the Traditional 8X12 greenhouse can be put together in just hours depending on how much help you have. No special tools are required, and all the bolt holes are pre-drilled and the door is pre-hung.  Once you prepare a level foundation, simply bolt the frame together, insert the glazing, and fasten the bar caps. Detailed written directions along with an instructional DVD guide you through the process.

Glazing Systems:
fivewall polycarbonate glazingFivewall Polycarbonate - This 16mm polycarbonate is the most efficient covering available on standard greenhouses today.  It is practical for a growing greenhouse as it offers 50% more insulation than double pane glass and 80% more efficient than 6mm twinwall polycarbonate. While diffusing excess sunlight in the summer, it is virtually unbreakable, making it safe and an ideal roofing material. The polycarbonate provides an R value of 3.03 and has about 62% light transmission, helping to minimize interior condensation. Fivewall polycarbonate is ideal for colder climates, growers of specialty plants, or for those gardeners seeking the most energy efficient greenhouse possible.
