Charles Sacilotto and Marie Granmar of Stockholm, Sweden, found a novel way to keep their summer house warm all year around, even during brutal Scandinavian winters. They built an entire greenhouse around the outside of their home. The 4-militmeter thick glass keeps it toasty inside. Sacilotto says “At the end of January it can be -2°C outside and it can be 15 to 20°C upstairs.”
This means that the couple can do a lot with their home that normally isn’t possible in Sweden. The outside of their (inside home) is a garden, with tomatoes, peppers, grapes, and other plants growing throughout the extensive deck system. There’s even a goldfish pond and an internal sewage system. You can read more about it at the San Francisco Globe.
