    I am very impressed. I love greenhouses and often look at what people are doing. If I were young enough I would be doing exactly what you are doing. The Green House in the Snow design makes most other systems look very inefficient.

    I have a couple of questions.
    Are the fans loud?
    What would it take to maintain normal room temperature in winter if some eccentric like me decided he wanted to live in a greenhouse but not have huge fuel bills.

    Thanks for the update..passion fruit has very invasive root. It may take over the entire greenhouse if you don’t so aggressive pruning.

    Is that the Romanian flag in back ? 🇷🇴

    Curious about what fish you’re using for the aquaponics.

    I’m located in springville as well. My wife and I are looking for a “farm house” s as we want to grow most of our food.

    Thanks for the update on this wintery day in Utah.

    I see you have some trees in the ground, but a lot of the citrus in containers. Is there a particular reason the citrus are still in the containers? Do you plan on putting the citrus trees in the ground in the future? Is there anything in the layout of this style of greenhouse that makes it a bad idea to put a number of trees in the ground? Thank you for the information and putting up your videos.

    The thing I can’t figure out and would love your input on is how do your plants get pollinated in the closed greenhouse in the winter?

    WOW! I tried to grow artichoke here in Utah and failed miserably. 🤣 It’s one of my favorite foods. This greenhouse is so fantastic!

    Love the videos keep it up! One question though do you think the greenhouse is wide enough or is there a reason they design them to be longer than wider?

    Try to bore us more 😉.
    Impossible 😁

    You should try ginger root and turmeric, I grow them in pots in my kitchen window.

    I love your updates! I am In Alberta, Canada and hoping to one day have a solar greenhouse myself. Would you be able to do a more thorough run through of your aquaponics setup? Also – Where do you buy your citrus and avocado plants from? Thanks!

    I love the updates! Great job! Keep on truckin! I’m working on planting a pot of carrots and a flat of Lettuce in January.

    I can not wait to order my greenhouse in the snow. I think it’s one of the most efficient designs for using little heating and cooling system. Thank you for sharing, much appreciate it!

    Thanks bro!!

    I love your consistent updates! Keep them coming. They are a great service.

    Well done, greetings from Russia

  19. TheRoon4660 on April 1, 2021 at 12:16 am

    Another question, I think you mentioned in another video that you wish you had doubled the the air circulation conduits in the ground. Just out of curiosity how much more material cost would that have meant and what result would you expect?

  20. Bryan Johnson on April 1, 2021 at 12:16 am

    Is that a mason bee house I see? How do the bees work indoors? Any problems with getting stung?

  21. TheRoon4660 on April 1, 2021 at 12:18 am

    I hope I am not annoying you with all these questions. I think I am mixing you up with another guy that has the same kit. Instead of having a designated room for the air intake he had it in the corner of the greenhouse. I wonder if you have any comments. I think it was he that regretted not doubling the conduit. Are you satisfied so far?

  22. dumvivimus on April 1, 2021 at 12:20 am

    I love seeing your progress, a greenhouse like this is on my list of big ticket items fir the near future. You should try radicchio and chicory and all the cool weather greens like broccoli raab, tatsoi, kale, mache etc. for winter.

  23. Ilovemyjob812 on April 1, 2021 at 12:21 am

    These videos are fantastic. Its very enjoyable to see your progress in the greenhouse and sift through the Q and A and gain insight from your setup. Thank you very much for posting this series and please do stick with it! Chalk full O Inspiration

    I’m waiting out winter, cool setup.

  25. Matthew McKenzie on April 1, 2021 at 12:25 am

    I’m curious about how your trout are doing and am looking forward to further updates. I know that trout prefer cold water so it will be interesting to see how they fare in a greenhouse in the summer. It’s my understanding that trout need lots of dissolved oxygen, and oxygen solubility in water increases as temperature decreases. In order to increase the oxygen levels It may be helpful to run the return water through an old shower head or something similar. Also, have you considered some type of air stone or something like that for the tank?

    Hello from morgen 58 degrees in January that’s great. I have just got the glassing on my small Wallipini 8 x20. I took advantages of last weeks wether. What do you do In the summer time temperature. I have an internal ground loop. I will have to wait and see if it works. Keep posting.

  27. Sharon G on April 1, 2021 at 12:28 am

    Thank you for posting! Your videos are very informative. One request: could do a slow pan of the space rather than panning back and forth? I get terrible motion sickness watching these videos. I always want to power through, but then regret it afterward – lol.
    Thanks for all the great information! Looking forward to more videos (hopefully with less rocking ;-).

    This is really inspiring, thank you.

    Hugely inspirational

  31. A JS on April 1, 2021 at 12:31 am

  32. Duane Thieme on April 1, 2021 at 12:31 am
