Recycled greenhouse by the sea

DSC_0934IMG_0706

Now this a dream project! I have been thinking about it for ages. Making a green house of old windows.

Recycling. Reusing. Redesigning. Making an extra room with extraordinary light! Everytime I am at a recycling center I look at windows people have thrown away. Windows that have so much potencial!

It´s still a dream, but it will come true! One day!

Untill then I`ll hang out in this redesign greenhouse by the fjord. Not far from my house. A greenhouse made out of of windows from a building that was to be torn down. (Sundeprosjekt).

Rolf, the owner and handyman, built the greenhouse. And has done an amazing job. Not to mention esthetic. Accurate lines. Perfect symmetry. I am speechless.

The greenhouse has grapevines along three sides, and a wooden floor in the middle where he has made a work bench of left over wood, perfect for gatherings too!

What do you think? Read about it in the local paper Grenda and Kvinnheringen this week!

New York magnolias on the wall

DSC_1036This spring, on a trip to New York, I had the most amazing meeting with a park in full bloom. The magnolias in Central Park.

What a sight! I`m over average fond of flowers.

This instagram picture just had to wind up on my wall over my carpenter bench. Adding a little sweet to the rustic!

Me like!

Leftover wooden material is fun to play around with.

A carpenter wanted to throw away the short bits of plank leftover after building my terracce. I insisted on keeping them. I saw possibility.

1) First I measured up the seating and cut planks in the same length.

2) Then I made a frame with the same width as the seating.

3) The I made 4 legs and two short supporting planks. Screwed them info place.

4) Finally I screwed the sesting into place.

Voila. So simple!
