    Help me pick a new GH

    Mother won a poker tourney, and is donating $1200 to me for a new permanent outdoor GH.
    I've got a lot of choices, but a few things to keep in mind.

    1. I live in a zone 5 (Michigan) with harsh, cold winters. (Aluminum frame is probably best)
    2. Heating/cooling will need to be figured into the cost.
    3. Size matters, bigger the better. Mom thought a 10' x 12' sounded kind of small.
    4. Everything needed, GH included, cannot cost more than $1200.
    5. I have a 2 week deadline to hunt, shop, select, and order.

    I'm open to suggestions and recommendations. Let's hear what you guys think. Links are appreciated.

    Just remember Travis, you get what you pay for. Don't waste good money on a crap product just to get it.

    The cheapest decent one I've found is 3Kish.
