Now, the giant passive solar one I'm building is less magazine-worthy, but likely to be much more comfortable... and you'd better believe I'm keeping a hammock set up in there once it's done.
Might be a bit colder depending where your located, but if it increases you zone of hardiness by even one that's worth it to some people. I have a green house smaller than this one but no glass just plastic. We use it to grow peppers in summer and various cold hardy crops in winter.
