greenhouse on the hill

petewaz9200July 7, 2014

w/ a level subfloor, low end @ ground level and high end 4' above the earth, is it best to have a solid deck to build everything upon or decking just in the area where i walk and use expanded metal around the perimeter where the beds will be to accomodate drainage, ps, the structure will be @ 9200' elevation.

At 9200 ft elev I'd be thinking a sunken, pit structure. You'll have a very hard time keeping an elevated GH warm.

Despite my reservations, perhaps unwarranted, the setup below or some variation makes sense in a cold climate.

Here is a link that might be useful: high plains GH
