Green House


Found old windows that someone was throwing out. So I decided to grab them for a recycled project.

My husband stared to figure out the measurements, and a good location in out backyard.

He gave it a rough draft to make sure the right windows will fit in the right places.

There is my husband getting the base of the Greenhouse so it will be even all around the perimeter. My dog wanted to help. :)

Now he is ready for the framing. He has been working very hard while I take pictures. :)

The Green house is done being built. Now my turn to clean, paint, and scrap the windows clean.

Now it is completed. I found some white shutters on the side of the road to give this Green house extra character.

I added a little pathway to the entrance to the door. The rocks I found on the beach to define the pathway. I stenciled a green vintage look to the top rim above the door and shutters. I love how this turned out. My plants are doing well as long as I remember to water them. :

Have a question about this project?

    This is a great use of old windows. If you have answered this question previously, I apologize . What did you use for the roof?

    what did you use for your roof. we made a green house out of old windows as well, but we still have to put a roof on. we get snow in the winter, but i want a transparent roof.

    I've been looking through this post for a link in case I missed something. I have the same question as others above have asked: What did you use for the roof? Did you build this near your garden hose spigot? It's just wonderful and you two should be so proud!
