Default Potting shed combination cold frame?

This is really more of a potting shed. It could be used for a cold frame. This was made by a friend of mine and decorated by his kids. What is really neat about it is that he made it using salvaged windows. The door had to be salvage too. I don't know about the roof.

How nice - blue flowers on the door. They don't have to wait til spring!

I like it. It may not look like the one I really, really want one day, but it doesn't look bad, it's recycled, was probably cheap-free. It's an all-around winner in my book.

What I liked about it most other than that all the materials looked salvaged is that you are out of the sun working in it but the air blows through so you wouldn't cook. Practical design for a potting shed and you could start seeds out there.

I've seen an invisible room made out of windows. They are hung in a rectangular manner around a paved, swept, graveled whatever floor you choose. Fill the imaginary room with a few pieces of furniture and there you have it!

You hang them from tree branches. Perhaps in a forest setting or in a home environment. Plant of 4-6 trees for your future room...............

This reminds me of protected bus stops. They are three sided and provide relief from winds while waiting for public transportation. You can see through them. I don't know if they're using tempered glass or heavy plexiglass. They do help keep the winds away.
