Windstorm tore down my greenhouse - so I'm planning to put in a couple coldframes myself. Should be good season extenders - for me probably more useful than the greenhouse was - and not quite as susceptible to the wind! I do have a couple of old storm doors to use for the tops.

I have a portable one and I love it. I just googled greenhouses and then picked one that fit my needs. The bottom is open with four sides and then the top has two zippers so I can open and let the day in and close off at night to protect. I think it is made out of a light weight nylon. Kind of looks like a long pup tent. We also have a deer problem and this helps me with that. I think I spent about 100 and it was well worth my $$$$$$$$$. I first saw one on Martha and that is what started my search.
Around here many have a glass door on top of a four sided box about 18" high x 5' wide x 3' deep and it makes like a small green house. The glass door lifts to get air on warmer days and I think harden plants. I'd love to build or get one of those. I think it needs to be on the south side of the house though and that's my front beds.
There's also a place locally that sells something like a tent about 2' high dome of what looks like pcv pipe that gets covered with heavy plastic.
