    Excellent video! I have been throwing around the idea of a BIG greenhouse. I have a little 12X12 harbor freight greenhouse. I dearly love to grow cacti, and tropicals, in addition to mushrooms (I’ll need a special place for those!)
    I was thinking about using a rocket mass heater as a central heat source for the winter time, it gets pretty nasty up here in Western PA. As far as ventilation, my dad used to be a commercial HVAC tech so he can hook me up with some serious air moving equipment, and I was also thinking to add a central mister system (depending on if I’ve got an army of cacti or tropicals!)

    Is there any way to make the heating/cooling a bit more efficient? I was thinking of using an air pocket and double layer glass/poly. Has anybody ever tried this?

    People live in the Southern Hemisphere, so for them northern exposure instead of southern is preferred?

    i absolutely loved this video, very nice and the lady is very nice

    My question is why the green house is constructed ? What are its purposes. I am a home grower too, but I just came across your site and am curious about this concept.

    I think you can make it yourself, just loook and learn from woodprix .

    Easier say then done for most people

  7. swann548 on March 7, 2021 at 10:50 pm

    Can u grow all vegetables inside the greenhouse or do the plants need moved outside later for pollination ?

  8. AYi C on March 7, 2021 at 10:50 pm

    Location of the greenhouse in this video only valid for north hemisphere, for south hemisphere should be opposite to what is mentioned in this Video. After all, it’s a Good video, thx

    In my parents house they closed off a patio with big sliding glass windows, it gets north/west exposure, although it’s not super sunny it still gets some morning sun and evening sun. We live in New Mexico so the fact that it doesn’t get any afternoon sun is probably for the better. I turned it into a green room of sorts and really love to hang out in there.

    "For a clean and sustainable environment"… next: "Typically greenhouses are heated by oil, gas or electricity"… That’s a bit contradictory – why would anyone want to heat the greenhouse? Where I live we just let the sun heat it during they day #Murica

    I just made a green house in my pants

  15. Shanta Hsieh on March 7, 2021 at 10:56 pm

    Really enjoy it. Let’s check woodprix plans also.

    Hi, I was thinking of trying to build a small greenhouse using up cycled materials including older double glazing panels. Would these glazed units be suitable?

  19. TheBigJR on March 7, 2021 at 11:06 pm

    Erm. Heating a greenhouse with electricity, oil or diesel is totally crazy. Just put the compost bins inside ghe grrenhouse and insulate the bin and yhe greenhouse. No extra heatjng needed and thd compost is ready twice as fast.

  20. Loïc Desiron on March 7, 2021 at 11:06 pm

    Meh. Outdated and basic info. Oil and gas to warm a greenhouse? This is NOT sustainable AT ALL.

  21. 1lionconqueror on March 7, 2021 at 11:07 pm

    this is so stupid. southern exposure will kill all plants. how stupid

    Really Nice that you gave elaborate information on all the aspects of the greenhouse. Didnt think about that. Subbed!

  25. Oz Sawdust Makers on March 7, 2021 at 11:11 pm

    How do the plants get pollinated in a fully sealed greenhouse?

  26. Chow Hound on March 7, 2021 at 11:12 pm

    Thinking about making a gh for my gf, the energy in this video is amazing, love it

  39. Robert R on March 7, 2021 at 11:30 pm

    Build greenhouse, grow cannabis, sell weed, use money to buy cannabis, smoke weed, get high. Repeat.

  40. Smufter16 on March 7, 2021 at 11:31 pm

    Concise and useful. Thank you.

  41. giantred on March 7, 2021 at 11:34 pm

    Well not I do not think a greenhouse is viable because it gets into the 100s pretty consistently here in the summer… Maybe it would be good for every other season?

  42. ShioriRose on March 7, 2021 at 11:35 pm

    Informative video. I liked the greenhouse she mentioned. Until I went to the site and seen it’s over 4000$. No thanks, I can get one from harbor freight for 200. ..

  46. CafassoFam on March 7, 2021 at 11:37 pm

    Thanks for the very informative video — this helped me think about which direction I am going to go.

  47. Chucked Projects on March 7, 2021 at 11:37 pm

    I never thought about the benefits of a trees around a greenhouse blocking sun in the summer and letting sun in during the winter its almost like trees were made with greenhouses in mind. Great video I may quote you in my future video when I talk about heating my greenhouse. I will be sure to give you credit. Thanks, great job.

  48. jesse debord on March 7, 2021 at 11:38 pm
