I am interested in every ones suggestions on building a green house. I have a truck load of free windows from a company that does replacement windows.
Does a green house need a foundation?
How do I keep a big wind from blowing the green house over?
Should I put NO glass on the north side?
My plan at the moment is to build a 2x4 frame using pressure treated lumber then attaching the aluminum windows to the frame with screws. I want the south side to be about 6'6" tall with a shed type roof running up hill to about 8" high on the north wall. I mostly want this green house to grow tomatoes and a few other plants all winter so I can have fresh garden vegatables all winter long. I am thinking I will put a walk in door on the east wall with an isle down the center to the other end of the green house. The south side of the green house will be for planting plants all winter about 3 ft wide 40 ft long. The north side will be water barrel heat storage for after the sun goes down. A work bench above the water barrels 2 ft by 40 ft will be for potting plants and growing plants from seeds for the spring garden.
It will probably need a fan with loovers for ventilation if it gets too hot inside.
What are your experiences with green houses???????????
