There's a tunnel at the end of the light...
Now that you've had that greenhouse for almost a year, I was curious how it faired through the Ohio winter and which arm and leg you gave up to heat it? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img] Seriously though, how hard was it to keep it heated. I would like to build a greenhouse to house Saras and other temperates that require dormancy. I would like to keep it above 35 degrees in Winter, but I'm afraid here in Colorado with temps regularly down in the single digits at night it would be ver expensive to heat.
yes please inform us about the heating bills and how it stodd up to the snow
thanks for you imput
I have only read the first page, so sorry if this response is out-of-date. In Nebraska, we would probably call an outdoor PVC greenhouse "a kite"...
*Though I really doubt it's as windy there as in the plains here.
PS Read the rest, and am embarrassed that I did not realize how old the origin of the thread was, lol.
So, how did it do?
