Farm Project Journal - Greenhouse Build

You’re right. The foundation frame is just sitting in place to be sure I cut the trenches close to good enough. I’ll remove those pieces and then use the tractor to scoop out all of that dirt. Some of it will backfill the trenches and some will go to my dirt pile. The floor will end up just barely higher than the surrounding ground, to be sure water will flow away from/around the greenhouse.

4 roof vents and rear window that can open/close. The door is also split so that the top can be left open but the bottom closed to keep critters out. The roof vents can be manually operated or use oil filled pistons that are supposed to automatically open/close based on temperature.

We typically get a steady breeze in that field, but I will consider adding a fan if needed. 

I have no experience with greenhouses, so any tips or advice are welcome. I bought a book on greenhouse growing, and my neighbor (previously a produce farmer) has one, so those are my main resources. We are in zone 7b.
