Is my house a closed system?

If I close my windows, am I making my house a closed system? My plant producers get heat and light from the sun and I can eat those plants as the consumer.

This is an excellent question! Even if close all of your windows your house would not be a closed system. Water will still need to flow in and out of your house and you’ll need to bring in food to get all of the nutrients you need!
