A loving couple wanted to have the perfect greenhouse for their plants.
Location: Minnetonka, MN
Designer: Conservatory Craftsmen
Architect: Craft Build, Rouscher Design
The owners of this home are so excited about cooking – and the wife is an amazing cook who has a passion for using fresh organic food, and they love to grow their own vegetables. However, being located in Minnesota – the growing season is extremely short. To breath life into their desire to always have fresh food on hand, they contacted us to start planning a beautiful and functional conservatory greenhouse.
The first issue we encountered with this build: The house has every look of Prairie Style architecture. Seems FLW would have probably added conservatories to his homes if we were in business then! So, we started with a basic plan of a linkway to the house, keep the conservatory/greenhouse attached but not.
Then we consulted with architects: Nate Tolefson at Craft Build and Tom Rouscher at Rouscher Design. The team came up with a most difficult design (of course) but a great plan for owners.
