the chalet gets a greenhouse

Over the past couple of weeks we have added a greenhouse to the Chalet. It is made of probably what amounts to 95% reclaimed materials from garbage picking. We have been collecting windows for about 3 years now and finally get to see the benefit of lugging all those windows around for so long.

Setting corner posts and laying down weed blocker.

Framing the exterior wall.

Adding the roof.

Filling in the side walls.

Caulking.

The finished greenhouse.


Now for the vegetation.

Beautiful! Nina said you put it together with all rescued/recycled windows from the curb down the street. Oooh. I so want to get my lalas together and build one too!

The veggies are coming!
