New GH Old Window/Doors

Check out my greenhouse DH and I built using free old doors and windows. I know there was an earlier thread on this subject, somewhere. The greenhouse is a 6x7 lean-to. It has vents at the top on both ends. It gets a good amount of light. I live in zone 7 and plan only to use it to over winter deck plants and maybe get a start on Spring things. Our County Extension service says overheating is more of a problem for greenhouses in our area, so I'm not to concerned with the heating. I plan to use a electric oil heater the worst months (Dec-Feb) and I think the dark brick wall will help. On the other thread someone posted that some of the recycled GHs there looked like hovels from 3rd world countries. I think ours is a step above that. We still have to put in the shelves. Any suggestins on heating and such will be appreciated. {{gwi:190841}}href="http://s880.photobucket.com/albums/ac10/excessfroufrou/?action=view&current=100_10141.jpg"; target="_blank">{{gwi:190840}}
