A gable attached residential greenhouse should have some consideration given to available sunlight, ventilation and temperate control in your sunrooms. In addition, the available height of the attached wall will dictate the height and size of the home greenhouse. Generally speaking, the wider the sunroom, the higher the supporting wall must be. Other considerations would be the optimum location of windows and doors for adequate temperature control. Lastly, some thought should be given to how snow or rain will slide off of the roof onto to the residential greenhouse depending on your climate.
When selecting a site for your foundation, choose a flat, level surface where your greenhouse can be easily installed, stable and secure. Locate your greenhouse close to power and water, while also considering water drainage and easy access. Try to locate the greenhouse so that 6 hours of sunlight is available during winter months.
