I’m envious of those who live in climates where there’s little temperature change. Seasons go a little like this: it’s warm…and then it gets a bit warmer.

But having grown up in Maine, I do appreciate the changing seasons. My mom, a gardener at heart, on the other hand, is not so crazy about what the winter months do to her plants.

While we don’t have enough space to build one, she is always jealous of people who have greenhouses. If you’re an avid gardener…or just appreciate having a space in the sun during the winter, you’re going to want to see what this man did in his backyard.

Starting out with reclaimed windows he bought on Craigslist, Kirklewellen’s design was heavily influenced by their dimensions.

After sketching a rough layout, he got to work.
