I have really appreciated the input from this forum. I just picked up our first GH based largely on this forum... a 10'x12' HFGH and am trying my best to preplan construction. We get hit with a very strong wind from the north west that among other things reaks havac with our 27' pool cover... thats certainly a post for another day. This has, however, made me very aware of the power of wind. We are going to have to construct our new GH in an area that will be exposed to a very potent wind during stormy weather. Given the mods from all of the great folks on this sight I still feel that a wind screen of some kind will need to be assembled. I was considering a couple of pre-fabed 6'x 8' vinyl panels along the wind side wall. I question the distance the panels should be erected from the GH to slow down or disrupt the wind?
Again thank for all of the great recommendations for this GH!
