Looks pretty enough, but no thermal mass to speak of and no insulation means that thing is likely hot as hell in the summer and equally cold in the winter. A real freeze-or-fry, as they say.

Now, the giant passive solar one I'm building is less magazine-worthy, but likely to be much more comfortable... and you'd better believe I'm keeping a hammock set up in there once it's done.

Hmm, that turntable in the photo is a little odd, no? Wonder when that photo was taken...

I would guess recently. The picture is from a fancy-pants home design/decor concern. I'd imagine it's just there to look cool and retro, as opposed to being truly functional.

Might be a bit colder depending where your located, but if it increases you zone of hardiness by even one that's worth it to some people. I have a green house smaller than this one but no glass just plastic. We use it to grow peppers in summer and various cold hardy crops in winter.


See the animal in his cage that you built, are you sure what side you're on?
