    Default 100' greenhouse

    started building a 20x100 foot green house this weekend. leveled site, drilled 34 anchor post holes, set the posts, and poured the concrete. next step is 2x6 toe boards. then up she goes!! Got the kit from Atlas buildings in Tifton Ga. seems like a good kit so far. pictures to follow. didnt get any taken as we worked but will try harder from now on .

    Pat, know your area well, use to live in Tallahassee. I was wondering how they are rated for the occasional big blow you get. Also curious what you plan to grow. With that size it sounds like more than a few salad veggies for the house.

    Are you planning on a nursery? I live and worked in Southwest Florida for many years. A friend of mine has owned and operated a nursery in Florida on 30 acres for many years. Due to the downsizing of the housing market, he has lost quite a few orders. If it can be grown, he grows it, from palm trees to flowers. He sells to Walmart and the larger chain stores throughout the State. He told me about two years ago, that his profit margin wasn't that much when selling to Walmart. Due to competition, and the number of nurseries wanting to sell to Walmart, he told me that the selling price left little profit. He still sells to Walmart, mainly to continue providing employment to his employees. Just a thought.Best wishes in regards to any venture your endeavor leads to.

    I reviewed the website and the kits appear to be A+. Enjoyed the pictures. Best wishes.
