    I'm being busy this last month, preparing to the winter season I could finally construct my new intermediate low tech GH.
    It is a wood + 6mm polycarbonate..
    Almost 80 cm below 0 level. And +2,,15m. Total hight 3:00.
    Perimetral earth tube.. And roof Windows.

    Electric hot air heating, 3 kw+3kw. I hope I will keep 11-14 C- of minim temp. With the 0-4c- outside.
    10*6- 60 m2.

    I'm very happy with the results! Hope it's works good enough!
    I need to done all the interiors.
    I appreciate any comment!

    Wow, Juan that is wonderful. Is this your own design and construction or was this a kit? What kind of wood and are the rafters laminated? It is beautiful. Congratulations.

    Very nice space. Congratulations.

    It looks like you posted a video from Tapatalk. I didn't know we could do that. Good to know.

    Thanks Naoki. In using a fogger system ( water and pressure air 4 bars only ) I like it because makes a good cloud but not wet
