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.
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?
