Located at an elevation of 10,200 ft. this automated, this automated and insulated greenhouse grows year-round with minimal energy costs despite extremely harsh winter conditions. The ‘almost attached’ greenhouse is integrated next to the owner’s deck, and spaced a couple feet off the home and the greenhouse to allow for easier permitting. Ceres provided the custom greenhouse design and engineering, greenhouse materials – including Structurally Insulated Panels and polycarbonate roof – as well as turn-key installation. The greenhouse is heated and cooled year-round by a Ground to Air Heat Transfer (GAHT) system, and completely automated. Attached to the owner’s second home in the mountains, it grows year-round without hands-on maintenance. An indoor ‘greenhouse cam’ allows the owners to keep an eye on their greens while not at home.
