A sunken greenhouse is a low-cost structure designed to extend the growing season of vegetables. The intriguing structure combines the conveniences of an earth-sheltered building and passive solar heating for stable temperatures. For this reason, sunken greenhouses can potentially be independent from additional energy sources used in conventional greenhouses.

But how do you build an efficient sunken greenhouse DIY-style? In this YouTube video, Joe from Homesteadonomics embarks on a DIY project to build a sturdy sunken greenhouse—showing the steps he takes along the way.

First things first; you need to understand the basic principles of building a sunken greenhouse. That is:

• The roof should be angled to maximize daytime solar energy. The longer side should face the Winter sun, which is to the North if you live in the Southern Hemisphere and to the South for those in the Northern Hemisphere.

• The soil in the dug-out may need to be supported to ensure its structural soundness and resistance to erosion. The best soils have low permeability and they’re highly stable.


• It’s advisable to ensure the structure is at least 8′ x 12′ for best results. The size is more economical and functional in creating a thermal mass.

• The roof is made from plastic sheeting that lets the sun’s rays through into the greenhouse and traps the heat.

• You should also take precautions for ventilation (e.g., roof vents or windows), drainage, and waterproofing the structure. The video by Homesteadonomics highlights some creative building techniques to reinforce the sunken greenhouse and improve its functionality.

The stable temperatures of a sunken greenhouse allow you to grow a wide variety of veggies—even during harsh winter months. But if you’re planning on building your own DIY sunken greenhouse, ensure you do some research beforehand to determine whether your property is an ‘ideal candidate’.
