The base has to be lower than the level of freezing of soil and above level of underground water.

The cheapest and convenient option is to make single-pitch roof, and in roof to leave the place in your growth or above to put hay or straw for the winter. Through ceiling and roof remove 2-3 outlets. Make them of thick metal or concrete pipes or of Teso, having brought down square pipes.
