  1. I'm building a smaller 20×10 passive solar green house right now. I'm jealous of your setup. Great job. Using earth bags on the south side to help with solar retention.

  2. Thanks Curtis, Excellent video where did you buy your greenhouse products from. Did you use SIPS for your back wall? Have you thought of putting a vestibule at the doors for the winter time (cold shock).

  3. The greenhouse framing looks like 4×8 timber to hold up polytarp. Engineers shouldn't be in the business of over-engineering stuff. You want smart engineering. Your greenhouse framing could have been built with 2×4's with some bracing.

  4. Many thanks again and again for sharing. any tips for such a greenhouse in a Mediterranean climate (Palestine)? that would also include Aquaponics. any major things to make different? like aspect, ventilation, materials, size, or other design interventions. thanks in advance.

  5. You can't store any more heat underground because you limited your thermal storage by putting insulation underneath. If you had left it open below, you could have driven more heat deeper into the earth for even more storage.

  6. that is a very beautiful greenhouse 🙂 i want to have one similar to this one day, not necessarily for food production, but simply for growing nice plants and spending a lot of time outside

  7. Thank you for the great info,
    I will be dedicating myself to be a full time farmer. Your works has helped tons keeping up mu motivation. What kind of plastic did you use and where did you find it?
    Success my friend
