I'm not very far away from you steve... My wife & I live out in the Post Oaks of Colorado County, just west of you.
About 3 years ago we finally decided to build a greenhouse and settled on a Rion "Green Giant", 8'6"wide by 12'6" long. It is wired with 2 electrical circuits (120V/20A & 220V/30A) & is heated with 19.3K BTU unit. I use mine just for starting seeds & over-wintering our citrus, cactus' & ferns (it is basically used from November - March). Other than that we plant everything in the garden, which has grown in size over the years (now 4000 sq.ft.) & is still a work in progress.
