Designed by Aleks Istanbullu Architects, this little modern guest house has made quite the big impression in Beverly Hills. This small guest house – an 855-sq.-ft. addition to the existing home overlooking Coldwater Canyon – makes a wonderful, “nature-inspired sculptural retreat” for visiting guests, as described by the architect, or as a haven for residents looking for a little “me” time away.
DIY Greenhouses - Recyle Old Material for Plants -
I made a few adjustments to this great cold frame/greenhouse DIY: 1) flip the box upside down and use it as a cloche to cover the plants so the clear part is on top. 2) use the lid as the base & line it w/ black plastic/paper to absorb more heat from the sun. 3) use biodegradable 4oz espresso cups (google to buy) for seeds. To transplant seedlings, cut bottom off cup, place in the ground - updates & new projects at the 2 DIY Board, https://www.pinterest.com/mclovebuddy/2-diy-garden-outdoors/
