I’ve poked around and done some searching in the FORUM. I’m just starting to plan my greenhouse. I’ve wanted one for years!

I live in NW Missouri zone 5b. We’re building a new house and due to the slope of the land, I’ll have a 6-8 ft high exposed cement wall on the west.

The idea is to use it to build a lean-to greenhouse. It will have water and electrical ran to it.

I’m looking into heating options.

My husband is leaning towards a split system, connected to the one on the house side.

What kind of floor do I put in? I want to keep it warm enough in the winter that I can start seeds, keep houseplants, grow a few veg, etc.

You might contact your County Extension office and see what the recommendations are for your area. Great resource and it's free.

The brick wall will hold heat also it you have rabbits placing their hutches in greenhouse in winter will raise the temperature inside also.
