New concept Greenhouse

I like the way the greenhouse is setup, it looks simple enough.

The one thing I will be doing different is changing the plastic out for glass ceiling, bury it in the ground about 4 feet.

I will have a solid floor concrete slab with old tires, basically I will be using the used tires to make a more stable concrete slab.
