Going to Menards tomorrow and buying the supplies to make one of these things...Lets see how that turns out! Got an idea for the header and footer to improve heat gain, will try and document the build as I go and post.

Any ideas on the "plastic cover"? I am going to have to use plexiglass if I can't find out what the best idea is and where to get it!

Well I am going to have to put this off for a few weeks as money got tight and I may be starting a new job soon.

Will keep eveyone posted!

Well everyone the job thing fell through but have been staying busy in my own business. I was going to take a job with another company for the health benefits but it never came about. I am still going to build this and hope to start before the first snow flies...seems to be the way things are going at the moment.


Since I don't drink pop or beer and no one is giving me the pop cans I am changing it up and using rain downspouts. I have a plan on making them more efficient I hope so we will see what sort of temp rise I get out of it when it is done.
