Greenhouse Frame Design
Has peak to deal with snow common to the North East of the United States
This is one of the strongest free-standing greenhouse structures.
Often has a truss support system to offer even more strength
Tends to be cheaper
Curved design maximizes floor space and is inherently supportive.
-High Side Frame
This increases greenhouse height to allow for increased internal space
Makes it easier to put benches up to the side walls
Increases height to create a greater distance of the hottest air to the crop level.
-Open Roof Design
Most expensive design due to ingenuity to open the roof.
However, most efficient cooling method
