    I showed this to my wife a while back. she can't stop talking about it still. Absolute dream home. we have a long way to go, but fantasize about building something similar in retirement.

    It’s certainly a different approach. Certainly not meant for a sweltering humid climate. Ant under a magnifying glass comes to mind......

    I'd like to have my whole lot covered by a greenhouse. Throw barbecues year-round. No shoveling snow. Perfect way to survive winter in New England. 👍

    I'm wondering how well it sheds snow.....

    While barbecuing you can Smoke fish, meats, and cheese. :D

    I don't think this will be very comfortable on cloudy, rainy days.

    i can't believe that the green house costs were less than insulating what they had, and building a smaller green house for their plantings. It didn't look like much was being grown for the size of it.
