I took a wee bit of video with my crappy camera while visiting Mike Oehler in north idaho. This is the official solar greenhouse per his popular book “The Earth Sheltered Solar Greenhouse Book”. The solar greenhouse is drafty, but he gets tomatoes in mid december with no added heat. I think the greenhouse construction looks pretty obvious.
