A loving husband wanted his wife to have the perfect greenhouse for her plants.
Location: Minnetonka, MN
Designer: Conservatory Craftsmen
Architect: Craft Build, Rouscher Design
The homeowner’s wife is an amazing cook who has a passion for using fresh organic food, and loves to grow her own vegetables. However, being located in Minnesota – her growing season is extremely short. To help bring joy to his wife, the husband contacted us to start planning a beautiful and functional conservatory greenhouse for his wife.
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.
