Reuse bus windows?

Or not to reuse? That is pretty much the question. Mine are 22 tinted. I feel bad but as it is now it could not be insulated for extreme weather and full-time living. I will be moving to an acre of raw land and was thinking either a funky tree house or shed or a greenhouse. Would tinted work for a greenhouse?

If someone would buy them, that would work too. What would you do?

It would work, but all of your plants would be tinted green.

A greenhouse using tinted windows has to be a bad idea. They use a special grade of glass for greenhouses that lets in a broader spectrum of light than
regular window glass.

I don't like the tinted energy-saving windows they sell as standard up here at the 48th parallel, where you want to let the sun in most of the year. My bus heats up quite nice with a bit of sun coming through its untinted windows, and is comfortable up to the mid-80's. Tinted windows are (probably) a wiser choice in hotter (and/or more humid) environments, IDK. I guess you got to build for where you park, (and sorry about the thread hi-jack).

The Crown came with tinted windows which really made it look cool . I am going to panel over it all in the name of energy-efficiency. Then add a window or two because my mother is claustrophobic. I think they would look cool as a second floor addition for the emergency hatch area. Seems too crazy...or is it. I just don't want to see you them go.
