I'm sorry your greenhouse collapsed.  

What an interesting thought (about the insurance).  We have a hoophouse,
10' x 24'.  We grow vegetables for our own use; we don't sell any.  So
we're not a business or a farm. 

But still, I bet there's some way for them to get out of covering it.... 

Our agent, who is honest, when asked what the homeowner's DOES cover told
us that if a herd of elephants stomped our house flat, it would be covered,
and that's about all that would be.  (Fire and wind damage are covered too,

Please let us know the answer, and which company you use.

Good planets are hard to find; let's take care of
the one we have.
