Here in Alaska, our growing season is pretty short so I’m building a super efficient greenhouse to get us a few extra months of production!
This particular design is known as a “climate battery” because it uses perforated tubing to cycle hot air from the top of the greenhouse during the day down through a large thermal mass buried beneath the grow beds. This heats up (or charges) the thermal mass which then acts like a battery as it slowly gives back that heat to the cooler air as it cycles through at night.
I am building this using mostly scrap or free materials, the tubing and landscape fabric being the only new things I’ve purchased so far. This build is mostly to test out the design before we build a bigger version in the future. Even if we build a bigger and better one down the road, this smaller space will always have some use for us.
