Re house in greenhouse- What about in the summer? HOT What about air, a breeze? Talk about indoor pollution.

Even the most basic greenhouse has a venting system. The placement of windows and even a couple fans would keep air flowing through. I imagine that areas in which this would seem like a good idea would be areas that don't get terribly hot in the summer anyways. I think it's worth considering, especially for the extra foods that could be grown "indoors". We're about to have a guest cottage built with a greenhouse along the south side--not quite the same extent, but will certainly add a certain amount of passive solar heating.
