The small houses are made from old wood windows and they are approximately 3' square x 5' tall.

The large greenhouse is made mostly from industrial scrap material and is 10'x 16', with a 5' porch. It is about 9' tall.

GrammyChris writes: My husband and I were just talking about doing this, A lady down the road made one out of windows, but made it more the size of a telephone booth. I am very lucky, My husband sells to contractors, and when they are taking old windows out, they call Dick. Our old barn is full of them..The company I worked for closed down, So I guess I should be getting those windows out and doing something with them. Thanks for the insperation. Now if someone has a way of inspiring me to clean out my fridge, let me know. Posted: 4:18 pm on March 9th

Born_in_a_barn writes: These would sell like crazy in the Northern Virginia/Washington DC area. Folks who own townhouses with tiny yards (which is much of the population) would snap these up. The great thing about these is they look very well made which is important when you are looking for something cool to put in the backyard of your 500K townhouse. I imagine they will sell very well down there in Florida too. Keep going on that dream, you are doing fantastic! Posted: 2:15 pm on May 5th
