Welcome to the group, nice looking greenhouse, "Growing Power" has lots of info on heating with compost etc.  I have moved from Edgewater BC to Buenos Aries, Nicaragua, where we have no such thing as frost - most of my pictures are on facebook @ https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.2181380667743.90781.1643749185&type=3, where one of the albums is devoted ainly to round concrete tank construction --  best of luck to you, Eric
