This is a Greenhouse we are building in Springville, Utah. We purchased a Kit from Greenhouse in the Snow and have added various fans, vents and shade cloth from greenhousemegastore.com. Its November and we are gearing up for cold weather. Insulation and electrical are finished. Geothermal is almost finished. Sneak peak of our Aquaponics. Lots more coming.

I would love to know what the noise level is when the fans blow. I saw a video of the original Greenhouse in the snow and am very impressed with the system. I would love to live in a Greenhouse that could maintain a fairly constant temperature.
Why did you choose not to build the back side into a hill using the earth to insulate backside? Or northside of the house.
Thanks for your video. I have been thinking about this same adventure in SE Idaho at 6000'. The only change I would make is to do Aircrete in your walls for the insulation and wall structure. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tKVsH1dkl6M This guy has allot of ways to use this inexpensive, anti-mold, insulative material in building. Check it out.
Is there any way to talk to you about your project?
How have the sheets held up to the snow? Seems like they would buckle in…
God bless you all. The Gospel is 1Corinthians 15:1-4, Ephesian 1:13, 2:8-9, Roman 3:23-26. Without blood there is no life and without Jesus BLOOD no eternal life.🕊️🎺🕊️
Nice. Thank you for the tour.
Nice one 👍
How much have you invested in your greenhouse design?
nice design! I have watched an old man's similar passive greenhouse design, which uses geothermal heating and cooling. is there any online guidebooks on how to install and use the geothermal heating and cooling system in relation to the greenhouse? thanks
I live in Utah and am probably going to build one of these down in Monroe Utah, any chance I could come get a tour of what you did?
Could add Reflectix to the back wall
Very nice job! Love the Greenhouse in the snow videos and what he has done with his greenhouse, cool to see others following and incorporating their own ideas. If I ever get out of the suburbs and buy a few acres, I would love to do something similar. Thanks for sharing.
Is the insulation closed cell are open cell
Would love to see an overview site-map to see how you planned out the dig to place the geothermal pipes. Share your work?
Thanks for the update
Would love to see your pipes layout in your yard i am a bit confused about the pipes in west , in the vaccum room .and about the exhaust outside what's its purpose and how is it connected?
Very nice a little complicated but complicated good when you're gardening if you know what you doing huh but yeah I like it looks like you're doing a great job I'm making one myself a lot smaller but same principles
Question for you: My understanding of these kits was that the back wall was reflective metal for the purpose of reflecting more sunlight down onto the plants. Have you seen any impact from covering that with foam?
So the geothermal won’t keep it cool in the summer without the fans? Did he figure out a way to do a self-contained geothermal set up? Thanks
Any chance this whole thing could run on solar?
Any comments on the potential toxicity of the spray-on insulation?
I'm really happy to see this video! I'm about to move back to Indiana from California, and plan to stop in Alliance to see Russ's Greenhouse in the Snow in person. I can't afford to build one at this time, but I love living vicariously through people like you who are doing it! Thanks for posting!
What is the size of this greenhouse?
Amazing video! What material are the black geothermal pipes?
Plyurethane greenhouse ??? What ? I think someone didnt get point of healthy tasty food using only easy biodegradable materials .. huuuuge finger down folks
Great video. Very awesome sunken green house. Good job
A lot of great ideas to design from. I have a setup that’s works well in winter also
great video and nice greenhouse! thank you for posting!!!!!!
Did you have any issues with water coming in below grade? Thank you , great video
First off, thank you for the videos! I was wondering the dimensions of your greenhouse. Including the entrance portion…
Very cool! Thank you so much for taking time to make this video! I am very highly considering putting in this greenhouse next summer!
If I recall Russ’s back wall is not insulated. I see yours is. I have often wondered how his kits would benefit from spray foam. Will be interesting to see how you make out this year.
Very cool guys? We have been looking at the kits. Nice to see you guys pioneering the way. Looking pro 🙂
Very cool! I haven't seen very many people post videos of their kits built. Russ truly has developed quite the system. It's on my list to go take a tour and see it in person. What will you be growing in this space? Do you have any kind of backup in case the electricity shuts off? That's my biggest worry. It gets to -35 here for weeks at a time. Having the power go out in winter could potentially kill all the plants. I would be curious what your electricity costs run with the greenhouse in full swing. Thanks for posting
So just air? Cool
Do you have any temperature data that you've collected yet (inside/outside temps, etc)? Not just the temperature coming out, but the actual temp inside the greenhouse.
Nice will you be able to grow avocados? can you give a rough estimate of the kit cost, I would love to build one in Idaho.
