A House of Windows

When I was at my sister’s house last weekend she had a huge pile of old windows sitting outside her garage.  At first I was like: hey can I take one of these? But that turned into: hey, can I take all of these? So…on a trip to empty out the rest of the items we had in our trailer we ended up bringing back a truckload of old windows.  Brett sure lucked out when he married me (when it comes to accumulating free junk).

I love this photo of my 8.5 months pregnant sister Perry blowing off the window for me as Sienna darts after a ball. Chaos.


I started searching for projects that used large quantities of windows and I came across this:


I love the video by Half Cut Tea:


Now all I need is a few acres of land and lake!

    Check out the salvaged window greenhouse over at Hartwood Roses:

    Not quite the same style as the video you posted (love that one!), but charming in it’s own way–and it shows the use of regular, matching windows…..enjoy!

    You are really lucky. I never got old furniture as a gift in my life so far… 😉
    I live in Germany – other side of the world and diffrent blogosphere (I’m without blog, though), so I have a link for you that you might not have found. Its about an old-windows-treasures-diy, needing a little less room than this old-window-castle you show us here … 😉
    Here it is:

    To see it in all its glory you need to scroll down a bit. OK. A lot. 😉

    I read your blog for awhile now and am very curious to see where your Hemlock-Inn-adventure will lead you!
    Lots of love from the other side of the ocean,

    LOVE this! 😀 I don’t think I should try it where I live right now as the house faces South and it can get very, very hot and sunny…. LOL
