Thank you MsRobin and Gloria125. We do love it and means a great deal of saved money on heat and the added pleasure of having a GH. I can't grow many things as it gets too cold at night, but I manage to keep it full. I have to propagate my seedlings in the living room as the temp swings are just too great in the GH. But that works too with a heating mat on plastic on the floor in an east side bay with a lots of windows plus a sky light. The living room is very cool but it warms up very quickly by opening the doors to let the excess heat flood into that room if we are using it or if I have tender plants in there.

Last is a collage of some points misc. points. The first picture is from the second floor and shows the vent and angle of the windows, plus the west end of the GH which is the dug out and the exposed part of the GH. It provides a really nice spot to get out of the prevailing winds and have some sun. The next is an inside picture of the brick wall that runs through all three rooms on the GH wall with wood stove in a dome to collect more heat and a peak through the window at the old pulley in the GH that opens the vent. It seems to be the only picture of it that I can find. The other two are of the table area in the GH, one full and one now empty. The end. Patti
