So, $10,000 investment to overwinter my peppers. Not sure about that.
I hear ya'. Post was moreso a marker to check craigslist periodically. A lot of people order GH kits and never use, and others are willing to sell dirt cheap. A hoop house would probably suffice in ATL, as winters are not terribly bad with the exception of about a soft 6 week stretch through Feb.

I find the double walled hoop house to be an effective insulator (blower between sheets) and a radiant heater if things dip. Also a water bed heater can be used to set pots on to keep bottom warm - they are cheap.
