Greenhouse from old windows


Instructables user cheft made a greenhouse from old windows gathered from houses being torn down in the neighborhood. Looks pretty impressive!

  1. No problems with site hangups and slow loading here – could it be a problem on your end? Loaded this page in under 3 seconds for me, and I’m using run-of-the-mill high speed connection, nothing fancy.

    Love the site, by the way, and would love to make this greenhouse!

  2. Site Ran slow for me too and my connection is fast with everything – it’s the double click ad’s doing it.

    I love the idea of using old windows though for a greenhouse and I am really surprised that I didn’t think of it myself. Totally doable and really low cost especially if you utilize a local Habitat for Humanity Resale Shop.Thumbs up!

  3. Slow, slow, slow—–I’m giving up as well. Good idea as far as Habitat resale shop. Great place to pick up materials

  4. yes, they’re right! your sight is causing a slow load for us who are interested in what you have to say.

  5. Wonderful ideas, but its a shame that your site is too slow! I know you’ve got to make ends meet but take it easy with the ads!

  6. love this. gathering windows and supplies as we speak. may want to ask your local home improvement store for an installers name and number. when they replace the windows and doors they have to pay to haul them away. would love to give them away.
