S2 Episode 8 - Customize Your Greenhouse

Guest: Kyle Exner, BC Greenhouse Builders

Big Idea:

Build the best greenhouse for you, forever.

Topic Today: 

Kyle Exner is the General Manager at BC Greenhouse Builders in British Columbia, Canada. Kyle has ideas to build a forever greenhouse and he shares his 23 years of experience with us on this podcast.

Wondering what to cover your greenhouse with? That is called the glazing and it will vary with your aesthetics and climate. “[Polycarbonate] does insulate better than say a single pane of glass. And it also diffuses the light. We would say the big benefit of polycarbonate [is] it’s probably easier to get better results,” says Kyle.

Wondering how to design your greenhouse to fit your site? “We definitely work right alongside customers with designs. That would be one of my favourite things to do.”(Surprisingly, you don’t need a full sun site.)

BC Greenhouse builders have designed Walipini, home attached and pyramid-style greenhouses for clients around the world. So bring your ideas and inspiration and create a one-of-a-kind forever greenhouse for your garden this year.
