Shutters, Doors & windows

If you look closely, you can see that this quaint
garden green house/shed is made out of doors.
All the doors have come from old historic houses in San Francisco CA.I love this little building.

It is located in the area where we live in SF.
The lot is used as a neighborhood garden area.
Right now it has a bumper crop of fava beans.

Old shutters.

Old doors and windows.

My daughter and I visited this wonderful
salvage yard in San Francisco that has
so much fabulous stuff!!!

Happy days to you.

I love that little greenhouse. I want one! The salvage yard looks like fun - I should see if we have one around here. Hmmm....

No snow in SF? I heard it snowed there.

That is great. Love the little green house idea.
Thanks for sharing the pictures of salvage yard!
I´m looking for a old window since weeks. Finally I found a antique barn which sells old windows.

That is a great little building. I love when people use old doors and windows. Looks like a cool salvage yard! Next time I'm visiting my brother there I may have to pop in!

The structure made of doors is so cool, especially since they came from historic homes. Sounds like a fun field trip with Teresa. I just noticed a salvage yard a few miles from where I live and will have to check it out.
