Sandy, I would reccomend a greenhouse with a curtain
wall over Glass to ground style. With glass to ground
you have too much glass as with a curtain wall style
using masonry, fiberglass, or cinderblock. You need to
think of your overall heating dollar. Sturdibuild of
Portland has some nice models. As far as heating I
would reccomend 2 of these small electric heaters with
2 ranges. Set one at your growing temp 65*F and the
second at say 45 or 50*F as a backup heater. It is
also important to have your ventilation set 10* over
your growing temp of 65*. Because of the small size of
your greenhouse there will be more fluctuations of
temp than in a large greenhouse.
You have not said if your greenhouse will be
freestanding or leanto? I presume it to be
You need to hook up a Thermalarm so if temp rises or
lowers beyond your heaters or ventilation settings you
will be notified by bell or other device.

I love answering questions on greenhouses and am a
Oregon Master Gardener. Have also given classes on
greenhouse setup & selection.
