NEW GREENHOUSE- FIRST LOOK- Take The Bull By The Horns: GREENHOUSE SAGA


Speaker 1: What’s up Fish Tank people? Fishtanktv.com, Dustinsfishtanks.com bringing
it to you on a greenhouse Saga Sunday. How’s everybody doing? I hope you’re doing well. In last week’s video, we talked about how
I was having issues getting a building permit and engineered prints for the building that
was going to go next to the greenhouse. But in today’s video, we’re going to talk
about the actual greenhouse. Speaker 1: And just for the record, this is
actually a YouTube channel about aquariums and your boy Dusty here is going to be doing
the largest aquascape I’ve ever done. A 900 gallon Mekong River tank redo at the
Newport Aquarium up in Cincinnati in the next couple of weeks. So do yourself a favor, do me a favor, do
us a favor, hit that notification button and that subscribe button and you will be notified
of when I do the largest aquascape I’ve ever done. Some of you can actually come and check me
out doing it live as well. Speaker 1: Now back to the greenhouse. And no Greenhouse Saga Sunday would be complete
without a little bit of woo woo. Just a reminder of my affirmation part of
it anyways, starts with if I could have any job in the world, what would it be? I have the perfect job for me, doing a [inaudible
00:01:29] aquarium and videotaping it for you all as part of that. Thank you. Speaker 1: Okay, so a few things worth mentioning
and quickly recapping here to bring you up to speed on where we are with the building
permit. You recall my meeting with the evil building
inspector. But the evil building inspector turned out
to be a pretty cool dude and has one, two, three, four, five fish takes. But that doesn’t mean he’s just goin to go
and hand me a building permit. There is a process we have to go through and
we want to do it right. Speaker 1: There are three things that are
keeping me from getting a building permit at this point. One is engineered prints from the greenhouse. Check, I had that, I learned that was fail.0. The next thing we need is engineered prints
for the actual building. I am, of course, am going to rely on the builder
to somehow supply those. Not sure why it’s so difficult. The other thing we need is a foundation design. How is the building and how is the greenhouse
going to attach into the foundation? You’re truly has to take the bull by the horns
on this one. Speaker 1: Now please understand folks, anytime
you hear the word engineer, think money leaving your wallet. We have to understand we have the engineered
prints for the actual structure of the greenhouse we’re working or the builders are working
on giving me engineered prints for the actual building. But the foundation is something in of itself. How is the building going to be affixed to
the ground? This property, unlike fail.0 which was agricultural
rural, this is zoned B1, meaning business. Meaning, if I want to be open full retail,
I can, okay. Speaker 1: So there are concerns by the city,
and rightfully so, with anyone in a B1 zone where people are going to be on the property
of how is this thing affixed and how is it going to be attached to the ground. You can’t just throw up some Hoophouse. If I was in a backyard in the middle of no
man’s land Kentucky, I could basically build whatever I want. But the property is located in a good location,
a B1 location, so they need to figure out how this thing is going to be attached to
the ground. Speaker 1: Let’s talk about the actual greenhouse. Now for the actual greenhouse, it requires
an engineered foundation design. That is not included in the original greenhouse
price because every county, municipality, whatever is different, has different engineering
codes that are required for this. My only point of reference on this is greenhouse
1.0. When 1.0 was constructed in my backyard, I
was told by the seller that every 12 feet or so I needed a pier that was about two and
a half feet down from the frost line. That’s worked out well so far, I haven’t had
any problems with the concrete in 1.0. Speaker 1: However, greenhouse 2.0 is 4.5
times larger than 1.0. so I have to figure out what the heck I’m
doing. I call my buddy Kurt up, who is actually a
engineer in town. I actually dirted one of his aquariums a while
back. [inaudible 00:03:55] around here and checked
that out. Kurt tells me to get in touch with his buddy
Moe. I call up Moe. I get Moe on the phone, I talk to him about
what I’m doing. He explains to me he needs the reactions,
the loads and all the good stuff. Basically the structural stuff of the actual
greenhouse. Speaker 1: I’m on the phone, like, “Yo man,
how soon can you do this? You can get this done pretty quick? Wonderful. You can get it done pretty quick.” And then I asked the question, “Yeah, how
much is this going to cost?” His exact reply to me was, “How much you got?” You know you’re getting taken to the cleaners
when somebody asks you, “How much you got?” I’m not going to say I was charged to do the
foundation [inaudible 00:04:31]. Lets just say it was way more than I was looking
to spend. However, I did haggle him a little bit and
get him down about 300 bucks. Regardless, anytime you’re dealing with engineers,
you’re going to expect to pay more money. But you got to pay the cost to be the boss
and time is money when it comes to mind, taken in blood, he could do it quickly. So he got it moving, he got me the foundation
designs for the greenhouse. Speaker 1: Let’s talk about the greenhouse
because oh my lord is it beautiful. Okay, the greenhouse itself is life goal of
mine. It was actually about six years ago we built
greenhouse 1.0. now I’m working with a clean canvas, if you
speak, on greenhouse 2.0 and I have to figure out exactly what I want. No, people in life don’t get they want because
they don’t know what they want. Let’s talk about what I want and what I’m
going to get. After fail.0 I had to figure out what I wanted. One of the things I learned from fail.0 was
this, I wanted galvanized steel columns and I wanted polycarbonate panels. Look, that place has been sitting there for
over 10 years, the thing is still standing. That’s what iced it for me. I was over there in the middle of winter last
year and it was warm inside on sunny day with nothing going on. Speaker 1: For greenhouse 2.0, I envisioned
it to be 36 feet wide. Why 36 feet wide? [singing 00:05:41]. You want respect to how big greenhouse 2.0
is? This is messy Mya’s room, that’s a tape measure
basically at the wall. That’s 35 feet right there. All wonderful woo references aside, 36 feet
wide was the width that I had envisioned. In fail.0, I had been in there a number of
times, I had seen the way the light had come in there. There was no obstructions of the sun with
any like middle support poles or anything like that. Speaker 1: Speaking of sun. Speaking of the sun, let’s talk about the
sun. Someday I’m going to give you a deep history
lesson about the sun. For now, we’re going to stick with greenhouses. Greenhouses get extremely hot in the summertime
because they keep the heat in and sometimes it’ll magnify it. I had been in fail.0 and I believe the reason
the guy actually went out of business, because he had zero vents in a 180 foot long, 36 foot
wide greenhouse. I was actually going to have to retrofit vents
into the ceiling of the existing fail.0 greenhouse. Speaker 1: What kind of vents does Dusty want? Let’s talk about that. Once fail.0 failed, I realized it’s a nice
silver lining that I can get whatever I wanted. No, look, fail.0 was good deal but didn’t
work. So I’m not made of money but I still have
to figure out what I want. People in life don’t get what they want because
they don’t know what they want. Now, I’m making a long-term life decision
here. This isn’t like a one year thing. I’m moving into this thing for the next 20
probably 30-40 years. So I have to think about what I want. Speaker 1: What do I want? I want the sunshine. I want the sun but I also want good ventilation
of that heat out of the greenhouse. A lot of greenhouse manufactures use huge
fans at the end of greenhouses. The problem with fans is this. Problem one is that they make noise. Problem two is that they take energy to run. Just like with my aquariums, I do not like
any equipment that makes any sort of noise. I want it quite, I want it zen, believe it
or not, despite what you’re seeing here on YouTube. Speaker 1: Fans are out, vents are in. This is where it gets really sexy folks, I
promise. Folk, greenhouse 2.0 has a 30 foot long, 8
foot wide atrium style roof that opens like a volcano to the bright blue skies on my old
Kentucky home. And yes, I look forward to frolicking through
that greenhouse in the full sun either by myself, with Josh, or perhaps, even with you
someday. Dude, are you like socially deprived or something? Speaker 1: All right, now I know some of you
all, you work in greenhouses or might have some opinions on this. So do me a favor, drop me a comment on what
you think about my vent design. I think it’s pretty awesome. But if you have any sort of input on keeping
greenhouses cool or heating them, drop me a note in the comments would ya? Thanks. Speaker 1: But we’re getting ahead of ourselves
here. We can talk about the greenhouse all day long
but if we don’t have a building permit, we got no greenhouse. Meanwhile, while Moe is working on my engineered
foundation prints for greenhouse 2.0, the greenhouse itself is delivered to the property. Let me tell ya folks, it was something special
seeing the greenhouse coming as the sun was rising along with my whole team there with
me, it was awesome. Speaker 2: What’s up dude? Speaker 1: Group hug, oh my god. I’m so happy. Fail.0 had big galvanized steel. Fail.0 had the big galvanized steel that sat
for like 12 years. So this is why I knew that’s what I wanted
just by watching that one sit in rot and not rot, not rot. Speaker 1: So when I was talking with the
manufacturer that actually said I had to have somebody there and some sort of fork lift
or something to unload it. Actually had to pay him $225, my man Ron,
to come over unload this sucker. It was worth the money though. Speaker 1: But just because the greenhouse
hits the property, doesn’t mean I have building permit yet to build it. Actually makes it worse. Do me a favor folks, drop me a comment on
how you think greenhouse 2.0 is looking so far. And make sure you hit that notification button
and that subscribe button so you’ll get updated on the 900 gallon aquarium were doing up at
the Newport Aquarium in Cincinnati. Everybody make it an awesome week and tank
on. Later.

  • Hit the NOTIFICATION and SUBSCRIBE BUTTONS to stay up to date on me scaping 900 gallon aquariums at the Newport Aquarium!

  • as far as the vent goes , if it moves it needs lube from time to time . rain leaking on lights/power cords would be of concern id have a way to open /close it with out power ( hand crank) dont forget a back up power supply and handicap parking

  • Please, less drama, more aquariums. People are sorry for what you’re going through, but we have our own personal “sagas”. We watch aquarium vids to learn and share on a large platform information about our hobby.

  • everythings looking great Dustin cant wait till you get the permit and get it finished loving everything so far you da man

  • Greenhouse 2.0- Coming along nicely D! Can't see any problems with that venting design, either. Another great vid- Best part of a Sun. morning. Tank on!

  • Thinking about any shade cloth in the summer? ..vent looks great….however do you want to just survive or work in comfort if it is the latter I do see air moving devices in your future…of course I am used to Florida hot maybe Kentucky hot 🥵 is not as bad….been in and out of a lot of fish houses and green houses in the summer all seem something between it is hot in here and I am going to die if I don’t get out of here…. but you are in another climate and already have a greenhouse so if the vent is not enough you can always make improvements after you try it out.🐟🌿🐠😎

  • It's so exciting to see it coming together, I'm just mad that it's snowing in Kentucky meanwhile it's like 80° and humid outside in Louisiana

  • I think your vent idea is perfect, there is a plant store local to that uses that exact thing instead of fans works very well. Otherwise in the summer you wouldn't be able to walk into that place here in Texas.

  • You will Not like those vents as rain, bugs, etc will come in then you'll have other issues to deal with. Plus in high winds they have been known to break off. Went through it with an orchid greenhouse.

  • Quick question. And I'm not coming from experience so please don't take this personal.
    With the vent being right on top, wouldn't that make the sun come right in and make it hotter? Would the kind of ones Rachel o leary be better? Again no expert so I haven't a clue what I'm talking about but I do live in Tennessee right below you and I know how hot it gets down here.
    Just my rambling

  • Dustin. Closer to that dream. Which you were around 30 years ago when I started a job I hate . Maybe I’d done mine dream of being a marine biologist

  • Dustin , Do ya know what a swampbox is? You should consider adding some to GH2.0 cause you may need to cool it in the summer. You live up in Yankeeland so the humidity may be low enough there for it to work. If ya don't know what I'm talking bout write me, they real easy to build and only cost electricity to run a fan. Jim Baldwin you big fan

  • I can't wait for the "frolicking" video of you and Josh! Epic!
    Love the Atrium style ventilation.
    When I build a home, Atrium right in the middle! 😂😍

  • Vent 😍! That makes more sense than fans everywhere! My tiny greenhouse has roof vents, always wondered why the big ones don’t? Can’t wait to see the result!

  • Solar powered vent fans- boom! Also see if u can get a permit for a solar array on the property near the GH to offset your huge electric cost. Cheaper than geo thermal (which would be a game changer on heating and cooling costs)

  • DUSTIN……..this eddie from jersey who won your fx4 bug bites video! I just want to say how excited I am for you. A greenhouse is literally right up your alley. When I think of Dustin's fish tanks I think of a greenhouse. I am extremely excited for you! I wish you the best and best of luck for your future

  • what way does the wind blow for wall vents. being in site check which direction the wind blows 80% of the time its one direction (not the band) should make it easier for the placement of vents

  • Dustin, I watched the skeleton of your dreams arrive & I was so happy for you. Not long now before you are like Balboa at the top of the steps. Keep on punching.

  • Wall and roof vents are essential, also, pull across shade cloth for when its way, way too hot. Fans fitted in one wall are good to have just in case you need air movement when there is no breeze outside.

    Wall vents or large doors on the shaded/cool side of the green house will encourage air flow on hot days when both the roof vents and doors are open

  • High powered fans are loud, but it seems air movement seems essential even large ceiling fans moving slower would be quiet, and move the air to keep the air from getting stale. You don’t want to wish you had them and end up having a bunch of fans on the ground.

  • Vents are awesome sorry my comments were late just got the bell😭 lookin forward the the big aquariums dustin im actually about to do a shrimp tank…Getting your plants! Nice video man

  • This…is…EXCITING! Love seeing that bad boy being delivered to the construction site. Love the design of the vents. Praying that everything goes well and the building permit is in your hands, Dustin, as soon as possible.

  • Uhm… are you missing some pieces Dustin? Truck looked a little empty bro! I'm keeping my fingers crossed for your permit. OH WAIT… foundation… dang gots to dig up the gravel again?? Oh no!

  • Great video Dustin! I find the building of the green house and all trials and tribulations very educational and informative! Everything seems to be coming along! I pray that everything will work out for you before Christmas! Tank on brother!

  • I’d still have it ready for ventilation electrical wise. Never know when a heat wave will hit and you’ll need more air movement. Be cheaper to do it now and better to have the peace of mind.

  • From experience with agriculture buildings that use vents you should install some fans also for those days where vents are not enough. For everything have a backup. Backup generator, backup plan for air supply, backup plan for water, etc. When it comes to agriculture plants and animals there always failed sources of critical things that keep them alive and healthy and with no backup plan you can have some terrible disasters. Keep on truckin

  • Wouldn't a Ridge Vent be the way to go. Vent system you showed is just another moving part that will "break". Ridge vent can be covered in winter (if desired) and can be "cheaply" augmented with fans in summer. If interested, hit me up and I'll send a drwg of that I am describing. Ps: I am not a licensed engineer….. 😉

  • Dustin I'm a huge fan. Your videos are very motivating man. I have to thank you for your iconic intro (what you say). It inspired me to start presentations with the same amount of energy and in turn a more confident speaker. Making great progress man, I can't imagine how sick the business will be buy December 2019!

  • The only thing that would have made this video better is if you had been wearing a GREEN BAY hat instead of a Browns hat! LOL

  • Your vents is a great ideer and i think is it gonna give the place a really cool wauw factor for the visitors. keep up the good work

  • I would have vent open from bottom of slope upwards to deflect rain from entering from roof, during heavy rain you would still have the ability to allow heat to escape.

  • Vents are fine. Have you thought about condensation? In a greenhouse of this size it can feel like rain from the ceiling, esp. in the morning. How will you clean the roof, inside and outside? Outside its your little crane and hose, but for the inside, think about some kind of plastic lining for winter time, vapor will condensate on it, not on the hard to clean glass – I have seen it in greenhouses here in Germany twice. Not sure if it was only DIY, but it worked. Make sure your vents are closing super tight for wintertime – if they don´t think about a way to seal them – extra layer of plastic? Mmh, realising that it will be open to the public..it needs to look good too..O_O

  • Dustin,I’m very happy your vision is coming to fruition. I’m excited for you and the future your business. Stay cool☠️
    your friend, John The fireman NYC

  • No wonder why americans charge so much .. they make bank just to move some pieces of metal around, talk about putting a kid thru college with those high prices

  • Want my opinion about how it’s going??? It’s starting to come together I’m freeking excited! TANK ON ! ❤️❤️

  • Hey Dustin, everything is looking good. I love your vent idea, but you will still need air to move some. You’ll figure it out once you’re in it. Fans should work.

  • Love your vids! Love your info and your plants! I will at some point buy some from your website!! You're awesome!💕

  • I can why B1 is harder to achieve. Retail means you will have customers and need a higher level of everything..parking and all that safety stuff.
    On Ag land? Just own it and get permits for the typical electrical and water pipes.
    Follow your dream,follow your bliss. Only one life.
    I have rental..its a living. Shrug.

  • This is so exciting to watch. I'm really happy for you and the growth I've witnessed of your business and channel in just 2 years. You're making things happen. God bless you!💚🐡💚

  • Hey Dustin super proud of you man and me going on this journey with you the whole time you know but the roof ideas I don't know about that sounds cool but wouldn't it be more beneficial coming from the sides as the wind blows you know I can just blow straight through and ventilate better I mean I don't know how Greenhouse works or anything but you know I don't know but that's just my two cents I don't know anything not taking on from you just let you know I'm proud you ask for some feedback so you know I'm just giving it to you look forward to the next video

  • Been without internet for a bit so late on comments.A roof vent is a necessity for sure but whatever you put in make sure they can be closed FAST in case of an unexpected storm.Being up in a heavy windy can destroy them in a heartbeat.The side vents are also a necessity to be able to get a draft going .Even with side vents and roof vents you're going to be surprised at how hot it will get inside .Having some kind of ceiling fans to give air movement will help.I worked in a greenhouse for two years and during the summer it got downright miserable .

  • You're going to have tons and tons of moving water in that greenhouse so why not add in a hydro electric setup to save on some energy consumotion. With solar and hydro electric I'd imagine that greenhouse would run itself!

  • Where are you located? New here and this seems pretty cool and when you have it up a running, I would love to come see it
