RE: Help choosing cold frames?

	We are constructing a cold frame here now. We made the decision to
go with Golden Pacific Structures Windjammer Series 500 over in Cincin. OH.
We are working with a 16x40 structure. Length, of course, can be whatever
you want in 4 foot sections. We wanted the 4 foot side walls for maximum
storage space when tables are placed inside. 
	Greenhouse is usually about half the costs involved. Ends
construction and materials, labor, delivery drive up costs. Then your
	If you are using the cold frame for winter storage only you will
need the milky white plastic cover, not the clear. 
	Keeping cold in your aim in winter, so big doors and/or fans, good
air circulation is paramount. 
	I should be home late afternoon/early evening today if you want to
talk details.

Subject: [CHAT] Help choosing cold frames?

Hi everyone,

   I'm trying to figure out what kind of cold frame I need to buy and 
   set up for the nursery (which kind of languished this year for lack
   of time).  I need to overwinter plants in a poly-covered cold frame,
   but really have no idea what's involved.

   I've looked at frames like these:


   But I really don't know what's involved.  Do I need to buy extra
   pieces?  As far as storm doors go, are they just regular storm
   doors?  Are there certain things that I should look for?

Thanks so much for any help!
