    Ah ok. That will help as there is some heat loss through the floor. With the moisture in the ground and the water from above it probably won't take much more than a few years for untreated wood to disintigrate though.

    What are you planning to put over the plastic?
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    i don't insulate my greenhouses, and they are not even sealed properly. I am using an electric floor heater and at times I am only able to keep it in the 30s on the coldest nights. I haven't lost any plants yet, and I do have nepenthes in there. They suffer some, but always make it. We don't get sub zero temps, but it does get cold. I am in zone 7b. We will have a cold snap then it will warm back up. It doesn't stay consistently cold for long periods. Usually a week max, then it is warm again.

    Ok got too looking things over today ,an i think i am going to do several things

    1).
    Going to silicone all cracks except the corners .

    2).
    Then Going to place one Layer of 4mil clear painters plastic.

    3).
    Then One layer of Bubble Insulation.

    4).
    as for the floor I did notice this morning a lil Ice where the insulation was not placed underneath the floor .
    so i am thinking about a thin layer of Styrofoam insulation then gravel .

    This should help ALOT

    WOW
    After sealing all the edges of the panels an the frame with silicone the heat an humidity really stay .
    temps at night are reading .day 3 after completion 58 inside & 24 outside . 57 inside & 15 Outside (w/no insulation yet ).
    Now After i get let my Bank Account build back up i can start on the insulation an gravel . then i can move everything in .

    Yes it is Much better than single wall as far as insulation goes, and for light dispersion
