DIY Big Cheap Glass Greenhouse. Grande Serre En Recup. Gran Invernadero De Materiales Recuperados

About: I am an escapee from modern life, now living by the sea in a forest garden in France. After over 20 years industrial experience, I quit my managerial position to study for a degree in Engineering. That done ...

Perfectly sound glass windows and doors are thrown out or burned every day. This is to share how I designed and  built our large glass greenhouse and to introduce some of the other projects we have coming up using this great resource. There will be extra details in my forthcoming blog on this project, as at the time we didn't have a digital camera with which to show every stage. I will post the link when I have written it, or if you like you can sub to my blog and get regular updates. All the best, Andy.

Fenêtres et portes en verre parfaitement valables sont jetés ou brûlés chaque jour. Il s'agit de partager la façon dont j'ai conçu et construit notre grand serre en verre et d'introduire certains des autres projets que nous avons en main utilisant cette grande ressource. Il y aura plus de détails sur mon blog prochainement sur ce projet, car à ce moment-là nous n'avions pas eu un appareil photo numérique pour montrer toutes les étapes. Je vais poster le lien, ou si vous souhaitez vous pouvez abonner à mon blog et recevoir les mises à jour régulières. Salut de Normandie,  Andy.

    Kudos in your quest of reusing materials! I loved to hear the sounds of your farm which reminded me of my days of a newlywed in my in-laws property. Keep up the the great concept of permaculture alive! Great work!

    Hi there! Thanks for your comments, I really appreciate the feedback. That's one of the Polish cockerels crowing in the film - We have a pair of chamois brothers, they actually stand on top of the compost bins and salute all 4 corners of the compass! Recuperating glass is really fun, you can build no end off things, we also glazed our whole house, which was built in the 18th century when farmhouses didn't run to glass. If you want to see some pictures, I just put up the first part of my greenhouse blog on and put some photos of how we'd used recuperated windows and doors in our sitting room and kitchen. Have a great weekend! All the best, Andy
