Featured Project: Oyster Bay, NY

This 100+ year old, French-bungalow-styled cottage, tucked away near Oyster Bay on Long Island, New York, simply begged for the addition of a cozy orangery. The dancer was pleased.


Featured Project: Minnetonka, MN

This project started out as a replacement job for a 20-year old Pella sunroom. The room leaked and had rotted wood and it was becoming costly to fix and repair every little structural failure. It was time for a complete replacement of the structure.


Featured Project: Medicine Lake, MN

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.


Featured Project: Livingston, NJ

The conservatory is the crown jewel of the home – tall, graceful and designed to look frail and delicate, but actually strong, sturdy and able to withstand the fierce New Jersey winters.


Featured Project: Hanover, PA

The matching greenhouses were built in 1939 using curved single glass, which is impossible to repair or replace, and wooden slats over the top to keep down solar glare, but everything had degraded to a point of no repair.


Featured Project: Greenwich, CT

A little over 3 years ago, a prospective client from Greenwich, Connecticut contacted us and told us he had plans to restore a 19th-century water mill and convert it into a spectacular conservatory space.


Featured Project: Clark’s Summit, PA

Originally a Pella sunroom, the structure had begun to leak and needed to be replaced. The leaking water had begun to rot out the structure’s framework. In addition, the single-pane glass, that had been installed originally, offered no thermal protection against seasonal heat and cold.


Featured Project: Burnsville, MN

My son, Michael, and I had been invited to the Chelsea Garden Show (officially the Chelsea Flower Show in London) a few years ago. The public can purchase day tickets, however we had been invited by a member of the Royal Horticultural Society as special guests.


Featured Project: Brewster, NY

As with many 100-year old homes, this house had originally been built with a first floor that was larger in square footage than the second floor. And, what was often done as a bonus with that extended room was to create a flat roof…


Harbor Conservatory Restaurant Bay View

Featured Project: Bond 45 Restaurant: National Harbor, MD

When Fireman Hospitality Group decided to open a new Bond 45 restaurant in National Harbor, Maryland, overlooking the marina on the banks of the Potomac River, their challenge was to take advantage of the view on the terrace all year long, not just the few months of seasonal weather.


Featured Project: Atlanta, GA

She grows herbs and other edibles and wanted access to them all year round. In addition to growing plants, she also wanted to be able to spend serious time in the conservatory, enjoying the Atlanta seasons and even sleeping in her room as well.
