Here we are a family of 8 in the little house on the Albertan prairies. I am thrilled to find a very eco-minded design concept for a future family greenhouse business. We are still in the learning and planning stage...


Hi Andrea, I'm really pleased to see you participating here. We can discuss your planning with more email dialogs or we can chat here and that way share more ideas with others. What part of Alberta is the farm project?

The Nanton solaroof project was decommissioned around 2000 - so, there is no commercial scale or farm scale projects happening or existing in Alberta at this time. - Sola Roof Guy

Hi Andrea, fellow Albertan with similar interest. Can you update me with any progress you have made to date so I don't have to re-invent any wheels...

Hello Andrea, I hope we can build on this page as there is some excitement here. My name is Ron, and my interest is in building a small 12x30 foot solar heated greenhouse in my backyard in cold and cloudy Akron Ohio, USA zone 5A. Can anyone provide us with some sort of plans or links to have a starting point? Is there any info on the Nanton solaroof project that we can build upon? Ohio Gardener
