We have been eagerly following Kani and Miles's WyOasis project and are thrilled to be following about six months behind their greenhouse work, which they have so generously shared here on Permies.

I was wondering what your thoughts were on this design vs a more dedicated Climate Battery design like CRMPI uses. I know greenhouse in the snow uses a drain tile for storing heat, but I'm talking about a greenhouse design that recycles all of it's air under itself instead of piping tubes outside the greenhouse. I love both concepts and especially like the sunken design of the greenhouse in the snow. But I wonder if more drain tiles underneath for storing heat would improve it. Do you have any thoughts?

It is amazing how much force the fill dirt will apply against the walls and slowly force them inward. Just something we ran into up at the Wyoasis build. Not sure if you have talked with Kani and Lyle lately about that?
