Customer Review

When we built our home 25 years years ago, we had always dreamed of adding a living space that would enable us to enjoy our backyard. Since a structure with a shingled roof would block a lot of the sun to the kitchen, we entertained the idea of an English conservatory. We learned of Conservatory Craftsmen from an ad on Facebook. Someone mentioned in a previous Houzz review that Jim Hewitt knows everything there is to know about conservatories—that is true, he really does! He has an extremely capable, competent, and skillful staff that was an absolute pleasure to have around. Jim Hewitt and his team are 100% committed to making sure that each customer is completely satisfied throughout the entire building process and beyond. We have no reservations whatsoever recommending Conservatory Craftsmen! We have enjoyed our conservatory for four seasons now and cannot ever imagine life without it.

Empty-nesters changing things up.

The owners of this property had been to England to visit a friend, they saw all of the beautiful conservatories over there, and in their hearts they knew their dream was to have the perfect conservatory on their private urban lot in Indianapolis.

As empty nesters, they knew now was the time to add the charm and space to enjoy nature, tend plants and relax after a grueling day. And to finally realize their dream.

They worked with Jim and the team here at Conservatory Craftsmen to design a stunning 24’ Victorian Conservatory just off the family dining room.

As their children are grown and more people are being added to the family – and showing up for dinner – the need for a larger dining space was obvious. The choice was this gracious and inviting conservatory, overlooking their spacious property.
