A friend of mine found a load of windows at the curb.  Her husband was able to put together this conservatory.  She plans on making a "fairy place" next spring.  Not bad for "free".

These conservatories are definitely inspiring - so many possibilities...(right Georgia??)

Thanks for sharing.

LuAnn writes: I'm sure you'll come up with something great. There is no wrong way to make these. I think pickets for the top would look cool. It will let in the sun, rain (necessary if you put plants in) and air. Some of these conservatories can get real warm inside if there is no circulation! I'll post pics when she has it done (which she told me won't be till the spring). She too is quite talented with putting together a room, a garden, and justa about anything else. Talk soon.

georgiamoon writes: It's OK Cindy, I can take it. I actually have all the windows, now I just need some direction. My friend "carpenter Jim" should be in town this weekend and I am going to get some ideas from him. Sooner than you think I will have a great picture of a conservatory of my own. LuAnn, keep it coming girlfriend, I'll get ya back you know. You're soooo lucky that I think it's great to see all the different ways to build one of these. Now I'm full of great ideas. I'm thinking pickets for the roof (or is the whole point to have windows on top too?) and lots of arch pieces all over it. I'm gonna have the most bee-u-tee-ful conservatory in the whole wide world. You can tell I have been giving this a LOT of thought, can't you? You guys are cracking me up!!!...Georgia Posted: 6:09 pm on October 24th
