I live in Spokane WA so the winter was really an issue for me. I have tried to deal with this by build a passive solar greenhouse and heating my water. The greenhouse also has propane heat if needed but I have not used it and I doubt I will need to at this point. If I keep the water above 70 the temp in the greenhouse stay above 60 no matter how cold it gets outside.

Should have taken more pics as I went but I was just too distracted wanting to make progress I guess.

I did and learned A LOT about greenhouse construction in the process. I had a lot of fun doing it but then again I like that kind of stuff.

Did you have a pre-cut kit? Or cut everything yourself?

Looks awesome. It'll be fun getting to the parts of the bed around the bell syphon. Just don't plant anything too big in the way. :)

Thank You,

I designed and built it from the ground up so I took me a while. Took me about a month or so to figure out what I wanted to do then about 6mo of pecking away at it to finish. Ha Ha finish... yeah right!

Yeah, I have had to climb up there more than once now and it a bit of a stretch but adds a little adventure I guess.

Wow, that is an absolute cracker. You have done a fantastic job there.

Did you put the window in the FT? If so what materials did you use, perspex?
