Differnet type of green House

fespoNovember 30, 2010

Hello every. First time post on the green house, long time poster on Garden web. So here is my first question. Has anyone heard of this type of green house?

I found a used one for sale and I was going to look at it this weekend if they still have it. I just never heard of this one or if they are anygood. Any help would be great. Thanks Frank

For the price they are asking for a new one, I would pass and put up a much larger tunnel for a fraction of the price. Never heard of them.

Looks way out on price to me.

I thought that you wanted the light to go through, not reflect.

I would like to hear some comments on the height of the green house. Is going to be made of wood and I was thinking to do it around 12 feet high in the center ! Some advice on this, will be appreciated.

I have a buddy that has a similar one. There are no shadows and the heat retention is OK, pretty hot in summer but shade cloth keeps it down, they are fairly happy with it, ventilation on theirs might be a tad low. My comment would be since you didn't give price that I wouldn't pay too much for it.
