Greenhouse as part of home
I'm looking to add a greenhouse to the cabin I'm currently building and had a few questions that Google couldn't seem to answer for me...
I'd like the greenhouse to actually feel like part of the home itself, so I guess my questions start at:
Can you have an attached, open air-flow greenhouse in your home without moisture causing damage to the rest of the house? I know with Earthship homes, they tend to have indoor greenhouses, but they're also not homes constructed of wood, so I wasn't sure how that would work.
Also, branching off that question, what floor would I need to accomplish this? Could I build directly over dirt or would I need a subfloor of some sort? I've been thinking a cement floor for the majority of the time I've been planning this, but I would prefer no subfloor if possible.
Has anyone here done anything like this? Or know anyone who has with any photos or video I could check out?
Thanks in advance for any insight!
