Construction is easy--the cold frame can be made using salvaged wood and old storm windows.
Step 1: Gather Materials
- Find scrap wood that will fit your light.
Note that the frame can be made of other materials such as concrete blocks, straw bales, etc.
Tools and Hardware you will need:
- Saw (handsaw would work, but we used a circular)
- Measuring Tape
- Builder's square
- Hinges (we used a 4" strap hinge)
- Something to prop the light open to harvest and vent (we used a curtain rod)
