Blue "greenhouse" made from old windows

Doing greenhouse duty.
I built my own trusses.
Most painting was done before assembling building.
Structure is shaded in the summer.  My husband and son helped me install the 4 corner posts and the main framework.
Alternate use: happy hour hangout.

Doing "greenhouse" duty.


Using recycled windows from my one neighbor who was replacing all the windows on her house and a couple of old doors from another neighbor who was getting new ones installed, I worked out this design.  The greenhouse came out so nice that we use it mostly for hanging out.


Design or Plan used: My own design
