Turn old windows into a greenhouse.

It took Cheft about $300 bucks in materials and a year and a half to gather the cast-off windows used to make his very own backyard greenhouse.

Overall, the finished greenhouse measures 7' h x 10' d x 6' wide. Check out his brief guide over on Instructables for further inspiration. Via.

I've wanted to do this for years!  Just never had the space.  There always seems to be windows for free or cheap in the classifieds.  I thought it would be perfect if I could get a big sliding glass door for either end, especially if they came with the screens intact.  Would save installing a fan, although I would think they might be more difficult to frame in and they're a lot heavier to deal with than the smaller windows.  I kinda like the 'patchwork' effect with the mismatched windows though.  Adds character!
