What could use improvement?
What do you think of the music choice?

I would love to see where greywater enters the structure, what happens to it and how it leaves it (or not to hear about greywater at all, then I would focus on tomatoes). ;)

paul wheaton wrote:Nicole,
I took your lovely drawing and I made some slight design changes - unfortunately rather klunky. Could you make an updated version that looks nice?
My first thought with "hobbit greenhouse" was "ooooo! that could be super cool! I think we could get a lot of attention with that!" and then the downsides started to pour into my brain...
- are we gonna get sued?
- will we end up with 600 people commanding us that we are doing it "wrong"
- will people gloss over what I think is the most powerful point: truly passive - no fans
- more people hyper focused on how the door is wrong instead of how the passive stuff is right

Does the hill need to be turned to dirt, or can I keep it grassy while drawing the black line through the grass?
What is the material on the top-layer of the greenhouse? I drew an arrow toward it in the attached picture. I'm not quite sure what color and texture to make that.
More people are talking about the size, than about the door.
Nicole Alderman wrote:But, yeah, I don't know about the legalities. Is there a copyright on hobbit? Is there even a way to look that up?
Honestly the legality matters less than your willingness to fight legal battles with a rich and litigious foe. The Tolkien Estate is famously aggressive in protecting what it sees as its trademarks.
