We have the HOTHOUSE in Mariposa Ca. it is too hot to use in the summer. We are going to invest in a cooler and hopefully that will help . We do like the house, when we started putting it together, we thought it was a bit flimsy. Once we got the back together and then the sides, it really felt sturdy. I am surprised how nice it is. I think we will enjoy it more in the fall and winter. Our foundation for it is railroad ties in the ground and then we put 2x6 treated lumber on top of the ties. We bought more of the sunscreen material at our local hardware store. It fits the 12' and is working well. We have also installed a misting system and we have electric power in it. The price was good, the delivery was great and we didn't pay the extra $ for offloading, we have a tractor. Our UPS driver shoved it to the back of his truck and then he set one end on the ground and then the other. But we were prepared with the tractor. That was a savings. Wayfair has good service and I would buy from them again.

Dont Buy Poly-Tex

from Katy, TX

This is the first time I have every rated a product, but felt people thinking about purchasing this item needed to know what I am still going through with this greenhouse. WARNING don't buy this greenhouse unless you want constant frustration. As I started putting it together I found the it came with broken pieces, took forever to get the replacement pieces from the manufacturer, and then once you get those and proceed to try to put it together again, you find more missing or broken pieces. The cycle repeats it self until, while waiting for the final replacement piece to arrive, it collapses in a breeze breaking 75 of the pieces. The wind we had was no where near 50 mph that it is supposed to withstand, in fact a large, but not heavy, ceramic Great Dane nearby was still standing and no tree limbs (even small ones) were blown out of the trees around the greenhouse. This is a very flimsy product. Purchased on 11-14-2012, collapsed 01-31-2013. So far, as of today 08-21-2013, I am still fighting. 5 year waranty - HAHAHA. If I could rate it with 0 stars I would. Note: I did not buy from wayfair.
