Glass House in the Garden

Modern glass house set in the landscape evokes a midcentury vibe. A modern gas fireplace divides the living area with a polished concrete floor from the greenhouse with a gravel floor. The frame is painted steel with aluminum sliding glass door. The front features a green roof with native grasses and the rear is covered with a glass roof.

Lou, The skylight does not open. What looks like individual skylights is actually a single skylight system. The divisions add support.

Hi Lou, The skylight does not open, although that would be an important consideration in the Costa Rican climate. The manufacturer is Wasco. Good luck with your project!

Permit Process? - How was the permitting process for this structure and what language did you use to get this permitted? I know in my town structures like this could be considered living space or office space and frowned upon by local by laws etc. Did you encounter any building codes, stringent regulations or by laws before you built this?

Thanks for asking. The Town approval process was straightforward and the building is classified as an Accessory structure. Good Luck!
