Hello, I am getting a Rion Green Giant hobby green house in the spring for my plants and business. the full green house comes with a louvre one automatic window opener and base kit. I was wondering if anyone here has one of these green houses. the measurements are 8' 6" x 8' 6" by 6' 9". it is supposed to hold up to 80 mph winds and has a 1100lb snow holding capacity.

If anyone has this brand of GH please weigh in your thoughts. It is a all polycarbonate snap together model with 4mm of poly sides. If I have to move I think this will be a Great choice model. Plus you can add sections on in the future. Well all in all it will cost me 1600 USD for the complete kit. I also got the pro Mist king misting system for the GH. If anyone has a Mist king misting system Please weigh in your thoughts there also. :biggrin:

I have one of these ghs and trust me assembly is a lot of work it has worked well and retains humidity well too but gets very hot so cooling is a must and heating in winter. When assembling get friends to help and when installing the roof get no less than 6 people or youll be sorry

Well the green house has been up since the early spring. it works very well. I had to buy the aluminet shadecloth to keep the temps under control. also installed a mist king misting system. I totally love that. I fI could figure out how to putpictures on here I would.
