Going to rebuild a commercial greenhouse
I was able to purchase a used 30ft x 96ft greenhouse. The seller also threw in some exrta hoops. It came with 3 fans & a pair of heaters. I am going to send the heaters & fans to auction because they are HUGE & I am only after season ext not greenhouse production.
My current thoughts are to break this into 2 hoop houses. I will use one for cold weather production & one for warm weather crops using Kool Lite film if possible. I hope to use raised bed I already have a bulging disc in my back, so the less bending the better IMO.
I plan to apply for a local grant to outfit the 2 houses. I am trying to spend no more than $7k, this will also include a washing & packing station (I am thinking about those carport kits that are sold around here for about $600-$700 installed) & produce crates.
My main question is for input on what items I should include on my list. Is there anything you would love to have or can't live without?
So far the list is
plastic produce crates
shelter and countertops for washing station (I have a 3 compartment steal sink & a single tub deep sink)
materials to assemble frames, build end walls & raised bed (to include fill material being trucked in)
plastic to cover houses
farm tek roll up door assembly
I would like to get a nice fridge, but I know those are easy to find used, so I doubt I will include that in my wish list.
