Default Simple solar space heater

Got a bunch of aluminum cans, a few 2x4s and some time? Well, thats almost all you need to make yourself a nice little garage heater. Take a look at this guys solar furnace. Its not the best design, but I'm sure it works.

I'll eventually be doing something similar to my garage in the future. I'm thinking more of a solar wall though like this. Its so simple, cheap, and really quite effective!

I've been to the link and I have a question. I must be missing a trick, but the input air temp in the pic is 80F. Is that the summer or winter where he is? I presumed he was building it in winter with the leaves on the ground etc.
