“Adding a glass room to your home is not for the faint of heart, but you are in good hands with Jim Hewitt and the skilled, dedicated builders at Conservatory Craftsmen. Beyond hiring them, our advice is to educate yourself about the design, construction, and operating issues that will determine the success of your project. Read all the information on the CC website, seek out other greenhouse and conservatory-related blogs and websites, and ask lots of questions. We appreciated Jim’s commitment to education, his timely and in-depth responsiveness to our ideas and concerns, and the desire of everyone on the Conservatory Craftsmen team to achieve a result that everyone could be proud of. We are very pleased with the outcome. Our conservatory has added a surprising bit of magic to our experience of being at home.”
The Back Story
Our homeowners, a couple living on a beautiful urban lake home in Minnesota, came to the conclusion that the existing family room addition was disjointed from the rest of their home and served no use to them. Their love of the outdoors, and the joy of growing plants led them to the conclusion that a room for orchids and other ornamental plants would best suit their tastes.
Conservatory Craftsmen was both the architect and builder on the final conservatory structure.
