Couple of years ago I dumpster dove for 29 , 5 ft. X 5ft. triple pane plexiglass windows, with 3/4 inch plexiglass dividers. Outside pane overlapped the other two by an inch or so all the way around.
I used some of them to build my mother in law a green house for the walls. Took me two trips ( the second with an 8x6 trailer) to carry them all. Still got a bunch left and might use them for the Vardo I want to build.

Well there they were dropped in a roll off dumpster. I went in and asked if I could have them since it was a large chain hotel.....

I was told "yes, gladly and we have more" Turned out it was 127 more :shock:


So I started head scratching what the hell to do with them here are a few of the end products so far......
