Before beginning the construction of our house we decided to get some hands on experience by designing and building a passive solar greenhouse.
Plan for Our Passive Solar Greenhouse
These are the plans for the first structure we are building on our homestead, a passive solar greenhouse. Large South facing windows incorporated along the front of the greenhouse and high clerestory windows are integral to our passive heating and venting strategy. With a wood stove installed we believe that our greenhouse will provide us with indoor growing space for a year round garden.
Greenhouse Construction Phase I: Concrete Foundation
Along with a group of friends we installed a concrete foundation for our passive solar greenhouse.
