Greenhouse/turtle house ideas
I'm looking for some good ideas and I'm hoping some of the very creative minds here can help me. I need to protect a few plants and a small pond over the winter but I'm tired of the energy costs. On top of that my wife has a few turtles and one big one needs heat in the winter. I'm open to all ideas but I do have a preference to use some raw materials I already have. I have some plexiglass sheets and an old "A frame" swingset. I though I could use them to make a small greenhouse. What I also have is a horse and all the poop that goes with him. Has anyone used manure to heat a greenhouse before without making it a deadly smelling fly house? Also any good ideas how to attach the plastic panels to the steel frame? I'm thinking some type of channels screwed to the A frame that hold the plastic panels in place. If the composting manure is next to the GH does that help enough.
Thanks for any help. My wife wants to hook up the heatlamps for the turtle soon.
