silver box in middle is the col air duct that goes from the propane furnace ,thru the wall ,into the greenhouse

One of my questions is do I tap into that cold air and run it to the hot blast
and do I tap it from the opposite side of the propane furnace

I have to figure out why I am not seeing a chimney.

Looks like the existing furnace has some double wall pipe starting at the trusses. Being propane it an absolute NO for sharing that pipe between the appliances.

The propane furnace is meant to only heat the green house and "garage". That is why the cold air return is sucking air from the green house, and most of the hot air is directed back into the greenhouse.

The hot blast chimney is not in yet
I had bought the black 6" pipe and for the life of me couldn't get it to go together
Had my X try and he couldn't do it either
finally got some of it together .....
Then when I tried to adjust the angle the dang elbow literally came apart

I was so ticked off I took it back to the store and......they are no longer open on Sunday

Went to Home depot and bought new stuff (which went together perfectly) but
the window of opportunity to work outside closed 'cause that storm started back up
didn't want to cut a hole for the double wall T and put the rest up in 40 mph blowing sleet and snow
I knew I would be rushing and make mistakes

The furnace has a chimney you can see in the 1st,2nd,and last picture
the ducts are that insulated ducting

I know thats why the cold air duct is there
I need to know - do I run one to the hotblast?
if so,should it be the same cold air or use a different room to
run the cold air from?

Pull the return or cold air from the area you want to heat. I assume you don't want to heat the greenhouse, so put in a cole air return from the living space you are trying to heat. Then run the hot air ducts to the same spaces, this will create a circulation loop where the return air is reheated, and sent back to the living space.

The GH still need to be heated
but the rest of the house does too

So the cold air should come from a centrally located area of the house?
Not a seperate room?

I would think you would need a centrally located cold air return. Looks like you have an awful lot of space to heat!
