informative

A lot of common sense but things you also wouldn't think of being a first timer. You don't know what you don't know until you do it or learn from someone else's mistakes. Great content.

Year Round Solar Greenhouse

I would argue that many of the single-family homes break the principal of building only as large as necessary, but that's pretty typical of high-end 'aesthetic' architecture anyway.

It's Fine

With greenhouse gardening you can grow any plants even if they are not in season. A greenhouse is a structure covered with materials and you are able to control the temperature inside.

It has several good ideas in it.

It seems to focus more on larger green houses rather than smaller ones for back yards. It has several good ideas in it.
