A Salavaged-Materials Greenhouse (from a book purchaser)…

Received this email the other day….

Derek – I’d like to get a copy of your book, Humble Homes.  It reminds me of my “recycled” green house…… let’s call it a project.

Items include old windows from the attic of the house I bought, the plate glass table for I window I had from my younger days, pallets from work,  and a screen door off my ex-wife’s house.  The screen door sort of put me over budget if one were to use actual costs but let’s think of it as a gateway to freedom.  -Scott

Its a cool looking little greenhouse, and reminds me of one I built onto the side of my own house a few years back under the same concept- use as many FREE materials as you possibly can (used sliders, windows, and apartment domed-skylights in my case).

The whole base of Scott’s greenhouse, is built off recycled forklift pallets, of which there’s about 5001 uses.
