Couple from Sweden built a greenhouse over their home to make it warmer!
When Charles Sacilotto and Marie Granmar, a couple from Sweden, bought a house in the suburbs of Stockholm they decided to find a way of saving energy during cold seasons. As a result, they found a very interesting solution – they enclosed their cottage into a large greenhouse!
This nontraditional idea proved to be very effective. It helps to save energy: solar heat warms up the house and creates a mild microclimate in the yard.
During cold months the family still uses heating, but the economy is really great.
The greenhouse is two times as large as the house.
The mild microclimate in the yard makes it possible to grow various plants, even those species that normally aren't cultivated in Sweden.
Thanks to the glass construction, the wooden walls of the house aren't exposed to wind and precipitations, so it's easier to keep them in good condition.
The greenhouse is made of metal framework and 4-millimeter security glass.
Such a house doesn't need a roof because it's protected by the roof of the greenhouse. Thus the couple made an open terrace on the top of the cottage where they spend a lot of time, even in spring and autumn when it is rather cold in the open.
In this video Charles and Marie tell in detail about their amazing house!
