The Frugal Greenhouse of my Dreams

frugal greenhouse

I dare you not to be inspired by this greenhouse made from old windows. Apparently the windows were collected from local houses that were being torn down. (So it’s eco-friendly too!) The result is featured on the splendid MAKE:blog, which is fast becoming one of my favourite sources of inspiration for sumptuous moneysaving ideas.

Well, I say “inspiration”. I think I probably mean “aspiration”. I’d love to make something like this, but I’m not there… yet.

That is so cool. And I am inspired. It’s like my two favorite things wrapped into one- personal finance and plants.

What can I say? I’m kind of a nerd like that.

Brilliant, attractive and inspired! Impressive. My husband, who may one day have to build me a greenhouse, was quite impressed.

And think how frugal discarded windows would be!

great photo!

apparently this sort of thing is quite common in new zealand. they also build beach-houses, or bachs, the same way, from bits of building materials no longer needed elsewhere

Excellent! I love it… Now, where to get a garden to make it in…?
