Paul Ladendorf wrote:Hi Rick,
I'm sort of in the same boat as Charles. Looking to build a permanent greenhouse and was thinking about a partially underground structure but am concerned about the cost plus I've got a high water table at about 4' (at highest) so not sure if even going 2' underground makes sense. I just installed a solar geo thermal heating/cooling system for my (very near) future greenhouse which should keep it close to "freeze free" here near Chicago. Any way, I'll be interested to hear your ideas.

Sam Green wrote:Hi Rick, am excited to hear your advice on greenhouses, esp with a survival aspect to them. Im looking at building one as my main living structure, kind of like the guys in Basalt, CO did, and others. Wondering if you have any tips/tricks for making the shift to one on the side of your house to making it your whole house. I like the idea of a "climate battery" or annualized geo solar, and such concepts, your input would be greatly appreciated. Also wondered your thoughts on using one to keep chickens/ducks/geese/pigs, heck if big enough even a cow or two through the winter, im up in eastern canada so its wet and cold here then. Thanks.

The area of glass in your greenhouse is obviously much less than a traditional one. How does that affect the plants? My seedlings can grow a bit leggy on a windowsill.
