Eco Art: Amateur artist built eco friendly greenhouse from recycled materials

greenhouse xbecc 5638 Eco Factor: Greenhouse made out of recycled material. Fraser Koroluk, who owns a small lodge in Bella Coola, B.C, created this greenhouse from entirely recycled materials. The material includes windows from an old house, and the framing and cedar siding is partly from a big renovation in 2007 and from the deck of the old pool he removed in 2006. The lovely eggplant purple shine on windows came from leftover oil-based paint pots that were collected earlier. Paints were mixed and used again. Even the cedar shingles and the tin on the back side of the roof were constructed of leftovers from the new roof he put on last year. Fraser saw the design of a shed in a magazine that inspired him to create something useful out of discarded materials. inside greenhouse FzIEv 5638 For Fraser, it’s a sort of hobby to collect waste material. Although he never had thought of constructing something in particular, still his spirit of reducing consumption and waste led him to end up with such a useful structure. Fraser is very glad after watching his tomatoes, tomatillos, cukes, eggplant, artichokes, beans and habanero peppers growing well inside the greenhouse. The Dark Side: Fraser himself accepts that he became a little lazy with the window glass panes and door. Including these two and foundation material, he used new material instead of recycled. However, the job is appreciable as it was Fraser’s first attempt. Via: GardenWiseOnline

    Hello Eco-friend! Thank you for reposting this. This greenhouse, however, was designed and built by Holly Willgress as well as Fraser Koroluk.

      Like Wayne I would love to build a greenhouse like yours. Do you have plans, additional pictures, etc. that you could share? Your greenhouse is beautiful. Great job!

    Ms Willgress, thank you for clarifying the origins of this awesome greenhouse. I’ve seen this story/article posted in other locations, all, apparently without proper credit being given you yourself and Mr Koroluk.
    Do you know if there are any more pictures available of the completed structure? I simply love the design and while I would never be able to recreate it, it does give me ideas for a smaller version my wife and I may be able to achieve.
    Either way, congratulations on a job well done.

    This is absolutely beautiful! It would look great on my new farm. Do you have a material list and any instruction/ measurements and such? Thank you for your time!!!
