I'm ready to move in the plants, but before I do, please join me for a tour.
The double french doors are both operable providing an extra wide opening for bringing plants in from the cold.
The clerestory windows using Gigavent automatic solar vent openers allow heat build up to be released from the roof peak. Solar vent openers work without electricity. The vent openers contain a mineral that expands when heated. The expansion pushes a piston that slowly opens the window. When the mineral cools, the piston slowly lowers the window back to closing.
Sliding windows open along the front and back walls for cross ventilation.
The exhaust fan will blow out hot air from the greenhouse, while pulling cooler air in through the motorized shutters.
