Couple from Sweden built a greenhouse over their home to make it warmer!

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.

What do you think about Charles and Marie's idea? Would you like to leave in such a house?

wow! that's so intelligent on their behalf. now why didn't any one of us think of that here so we could save on our bills and the government could save money as well. where is former president Jimmy Carter when he was building house for humanity and making them more energy efficient?

Whats that adage about people who live in glass houses? I never thought I'd actually see one. Not a bad idea but it could have some problems.

Saw a documentary on this family months ago. Having lived through Scandinavian winters as far horth as Lappland, I can tell you that this Greenhouse is a wondrous feat of technology and imagination. Hurrah for that French engineer and his creative industrious Swedish wife.
