Marie Granmar and Charles Sacilotto converted an old summer house on the outskirts of Stockholm, Sweden into a "Nature House" by enclosing it with a green house.  They got the idea from architect Bengt Warne, who designed the greenhouse.  The Glass structure was built in 2005 (we think) out of 4mm security glass for the cost of 80,000 Euros.  The sunlight can make a real difference as, a bit of sunshine in January, can bring the internal temperature upstairs, to 15-20°C, compared with -2°C outside.  They collect rainwater and recycle grey water and toilet waste with an ingenious system designed by Sacilotto.  They grow tomatoes, cucumbers, figs, grapes and have an internal fish pond.  The structure is not there to maintain the temperature at a specific temperature, but rather, cuts their winter from 8 months about 5-6 months, and during the colder parts, it helps mitigate the weather, when the sun is out. via faircompanies.
