Exploring passive solar design and thermal temperature control, this small shed/greenhouse was built using mostly recycled and re-purposed materials obtained for free. The goal was to create a prototype to see what works and what doesn’t, firsthand. The journey was rough and many valuable lessons were learned.
The size of this prototype shed: 60 sq. ft.
Materials used: pallets, scrap wood, recycled bottles and cans, reclaimed granite, concrete, straw, rammed earth, plastic, tires, etc…
Finishes used: water sealing oil and paint.
