Hey Guys. We live in Northern Montana elevation 3400 ft, and we have a creek and large field. We also happen to be located in a fairly central location on our dead end road. We want to start plans to build a large Solar Greenhouse using recycled or earth-friendly materials, maintain a fish stock tank with circulating water; and have this be worked by us and the neighbors and residents of our road, predominantly, to promote local resources and community camaraderie. We plan to tap into an adjacent spring bog for our water, and hope that most of our energy needs can come from solar panels. We have no materials currently, other than some piles of rock and mud. There is also a natural shallow pond area near the creek, which will also be near the proposed greenhouse site.
Has anyone built a greenhouse from plans? Does anyone have any experience with, or suggestions for, this type of venture? I am figuring this might take about 3 years from start to finish, since we are covered in snow about 6 months of the year. I think many people around here would pitch in to help build it.
Thanks very much!
