A Corner Greenhouse in York, ME


by | Dec 6, 2021 | Construction

A major advantage of engineering our custom glass products and spaces in-house is that we’re able to tailor architectural solutions to a client’s specific needs. The York, Maine clients whose property features below asked Sunspace to replace an elevated deck located at the corner of their property. Our team proceeded to replace and rebuild a new, insulated deck floor, and then construct the greenhouse addition on top of it. The high quality aluminum framed greenhouse pairs wonderfully with the existing architecture, and is annexed directly to the home’s interior for ease of entry and exit. Let’s explore the build below.

A small deck is removed from the existing home’s corner in advance of new construction.

New, insulated deck flooring is installed in the same location.
