    Beautiful day today, Finally !! Got started on the greenhouse, 7 cattle panels and 8 pcs of PT 2x12s a bit over 29 feet 3inches long x 8ft wide x 6'6" tall.. Put the base down and installed the panels.. A good many fence staples and a SLEW of twisted wire to make the panels become 1.. Next comes some dirt work / leveling and to put the floor down... 20191102_170816.jpg

    I've been think'n about building one to attach to the south end of my house to enclose the kitchen windows. I could use the heat captured by the greenhouse to help heat my house during the day (just open one of the kitchen windows). My house is pretty tight and wouldn't require much heat gain to make it work. Oh, and tomatoes….

    Just think'n out loud.....

    Looks great! I'm sure you've researched needing to reduce heat as well as gaining heat when needed.
    I built a smaller greenhouse years ago and even in 40 degree weather, I was getting temps up to 90 inside the greenhouse with full sun before installing a powered vent that had internal controls to run the fan according to temps. Burned up a couple loads of seedlings to hi heat.
