No one has mentioned the "pit' or "Walipini" type greenhouse for those in
frigid climates.

Hertford, NC

Three greenhouses the past 30+ years... fancy house attached curved eave
insulated glass on  concrete slab and 48" footers in CT;  disaster after 10
years. Aluminium and twinwall polycarb also in CT.... best growing
conditions so far for a wide variety of frost free plants with propane
heat  Currently in NC; a 1000 sq ft  single layer poly with roll up walls
and propane heat.... meh.
