Build a Garden Greenhouse with Old Windows

This step by step tutorial of how to build a garden greenhouse with old windows is a great way to re purpose and recycle glass that captures the sun’s heat into an enclosed space.

When you’re out and about, you’ve probably seen tons of windows being thrown out here when people replace them with newer ones. Many people replace windows for better insulation or just want a newer, cleaner look. Well, whatever their reasons may be, you can find yourself with a gold mine if you gather some of these windows for yourself.

One of the ways you can utilize old windows is by building your very own greenhouse like the one you will find below. Not only does a green house or conservatory add warmth to your home, it also provides a safe haven for your plants during the harshest months of winter, allowing them grow strong and healthy.

As the project can be fairly involved from the groundwork to the actual finishing touches, the efforts are truly worth it to gain some extra space for your home or a detached place for your plants to grow and thrive. The main material you need is the windows you’ve probably found throughout your town where others have thrown them. Then, of course, you’ll need the right woods for framing and flooring, some nails and screws, and some basic tools to get yourself started. From there, make it your own with the right paint and accents. How easy it is to make such a beautiful place to go and unwind at the end of the day.
