How is this constructed? - Can you advise how you constructed it. Is there framing that the windows attach to? This is a wonderful use of old windows.

Thank you for the compliment...I used railroad timbers for the foundation, and 2x4's to frame from the inside overlapping the windows edges. I used 2x6's to frame around the exterior base and 2x10's for the rafters...Feel free to ask any other questions...Thanks.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Bringing on the heat. Winter on the ridge drops to temperatures in the teens, and Moore hopes to use passive heating to warm the greenhouse. She’ll observe temperatures in it over the winter to see if supplemental heating is required — solar panels, perhaps. She's looking forward to growing a lot more in the coming seasons, and maintaining a balmy temperature of 65 degrees Fahrenheit over the winters would make a world of difference.She caulked the windows and then let her kids have a go with the olive green paint. Moore says she has only a few more trips to the glass with the razor blade left to go.

I like the sloping as opposed to a peaked roof. Easier construction and the rain or snow would slide off in one direction so it could be placed close to the house. Thanks for the great instructions. I have seen several photos of windows recycled into greenhouses but this is the first with construction details. Gorgeous!
