    After the move to Mo. we built an earth contact passive solar house , I grew in the front of it until ... it was to small then we added on an earth contact green house it was 24 by 16 , lived there for over 20 years then moved to a place with less ground 4 acres , built another green house on a patio slab that was already there . A friend gave us glass from showcases he had they are 2 by 5 foot ,with 2 by 4 seperation , there is a patio door slider on the south , west and east side the north is a solid wall , roof is the rigid plastic the only thing wrong is it is .... 12 by 16 to small ... it looks nice and if we sold could be used for an outdoor screen house , indoors we converted the attached double garage took out the garage door went out several feet and put in windows that are angled like a bay window , then tiled the floor .. some of the plants are there . The birds share the area behind the plants, we did all the work, it was not expensive , Prior to green houses here I lived in So. Ca. and did not have one . Gin

    I have ben growing for....since 89 so you can do the math. I only had a few but after I got married that multiplied and when we moved into the house we are in now, the number of plants grew to the point I needed a Metal Halide. I got the GH after the wife got tired of wearing her sunglasses to come downstairs to the kitchen at 6AM. It always work her up with.. CLICK! HuMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM. Then came the light of 5 suns.

    So , now the GH is filled and I have finally convinced her that another one is needed. it will take time since I am scrounging parts for the radiant heat and I need to get trees taken down.
