Jeff Lowenfels, pictured at left, has been writing his column for over 36 years now. That dates back to the first Sunglo greenhouse ever sold.

Sunglo Greenhouse Testimonial

This week at the Puyallup Fair a gentleman came up to me and shook my hand. He said “I just wanted to thank you and tell you how much I love my greenhouse.” I thanked him at the time, but I want to take this opportunity to tell everyone who visited with us at both the Alaska and Puyallup fairs how much it means to us. We love hearing about the amazing things everyone is doing with their greenhouses, and your suggestions for improvement drive us to constantly improve our products. Thank you so much to everyone who has already stopped by to see us and in advance to all of you who will throughout the remaining days of the Puyallup Fair.

My special thanks also goes out to Ray Hakala and Kathy Rohlfing who recently sent us the emails below expressing how happy they are with their greenhouses.Sunglo Greenhouse

Hello,
I just wanted to share some pics of the 1200G put together this month.
I ordered the unit in May from bettergreenhouses.com. I put the greenhouse on a two foot wall. The kit was complete and the video Inside a 1200Ginstruction was well done. It’s very
sturdy and I’m sure we’ll get plenty of use for many years.
Thanks,

My husband and I purchased one of your Sunglo Greenhouses in April (8X12) and I wanted to share with you our experience and pictures of what we did.  My my husband and I worked together – watching the video step by step and working side by side, it was the best project we ever did together.  I have attached the pictures for you to see and share with other people on different ways to build it.

Both of you have created something that goes beyond a mere greenhouse, and I applaud you.
We have hundreds of pictures like these that we have collected over the years. If you are interested in taking a look at them please send us an email using the contact us link above.

Sunglo 1200C Greenhouse Construction

Inspired by Roy’s video post on Youtube, I set out to construct an entire Sunglo 1200C greenhouse in one day for demonstration at the Alaska State Fair last week. As you can see in the video below Roy is still the ultimate champion, but I came pretty close.

Alaska Demo Build on Youtube

All together it took about a day and a half. My thanks go out to Roy for not only the inspiration, but for all his helpful advice on how to shoot and edit the video as well.

Alaska Fair DemoToward the end of the video I included the construction of the cedar benches and vinyl shelving that are available in all our greenhouse models. Watching the assembly you can see why they support over 75 pounds per 30″ by 30″ slat. They are super tough, tie the greenhouse together very nicely, and smell like heaven. Another great feature of this particular demo is the double door. One door closes onto the other allowing for an unobstructed entry way of over five feet when both doors are open.

Sunglo goes AlaskaIf you have not dropped by to see us yet, you still have time to see this demo at the Alaska State Fair. I had a great time preparing for the fair and taking in the sights around the Matsu Valley. The natural beauty of Alaska and the people who live there will remain fresh in my mind until I finally get to return for next year’s fair.

2012 Alaska State Fair

 

It’s official. We will be at the Alaska State Fair again this year.

 

 

Although two weeks of delicious fair food may be bad for our waistlines, every year proves to be better than the last. If you have been thinking about buying or building a greenhouse and you live in Alaska this is a great opportunity to see one fully constructed and have all your questions answered. It also gives us an opportunity to visit with our numerous Alaska customers. Hearing about how well our greenhouses hold up to extreme conditions is always one of the highlights of the fair for us. With an unsurpassed R3 insulation value, 80 mph wind rating, and over 2500 pound snow load, our greenhouses were made for Alaska.

That’s a big cabbage!

If you are at the Alaska State Fair this year swing by. We will be running fair only specials on all models. It is not to late to have a fully constructed and operational greenhouse that will provide you with fresh produce all throughout this winter. We will also be selling our demo model fully constructed and outfitted at a deep discount.
