Reduce your heat loss significantly by ordering your 30" cedar basewalls insulated.
We will insulate the interior of your cedar framed basewalls with high density 3" styrofoam insulation (R 12). As well we can provide pre-cut quality Cedar-Built tongue & groove cedar siding and cedar trim for finishing the interior. This cedar tongue and groove cedar siding matches the exterior of the basewalls. Brings a beautiful finished look to your greenhouse, and winterizes for those cooler, extended growing seasons!
Insulating the interior of the basewalls is highly recommended to give you a snug warm greenhouse. Keep in mind that Western Red Cedar is the most insulative wood available today.
"We are in the midst of winter and our greenhouse is fighting the elements of whatever comes our way. Surprisingly with a few nights of minus 13, our roses and geraniums have survived with no heat!! . Andy insulated the base walls this fall." Marilyn Thiffault (8x12 Free-Standing.)

Net solar gain and engergy savings:
"I was very pleased we ordered the insulation. I have purchased a small electric oil filled radiator style heater. It has kept the greenhouse at a constant 45-50 degrees during the night when the temperature has fell into the mid twenties.
During the day the outside temperature can be in the high 30s and low 40s & the greenhouse temperature will reach the high 50s with the heater turned off & into the mid-60s if the sun is out. I believe on many warmer days when the sun is shining, we will realize a net solar heat gain (and energy savings) by opening the doors from the interior of our home into the greenhouse-solarium space.
Thanks for your excellent product and good service! "
