I made 2 hotboxes 24x60 in. so a storm window would fit on top . so you can make them any size. Made it about 24 in in back and16-18 in in back. put hinges on stormwindow and made a notched lever to hold it in numberous open positions according to temp Hay bales would work good too with stormwindows good luck

Try building a frame on a southern exposure of a building and filling it with dirt then lay an old glass window over it. It lets sun light in and traps the heat. I have used and seen used just about every thing from old boards to bales of hay, rocks,old tires clear fiberglass roof panels. Sometimes on a cold night you might have to cover with old tarp blanket or whatever. these are not green houses but around here we call them hotbeds. Work good for starting plants from seed. If you have a window that lets a lot of sun in you can use shallow boxes old ice cube trays or whatever and start them in the house.
