A Custom Greenhouse in Ipswich, MA

by | Feb 22, 2023 | Construction

We specialize in glass spaces of all kinds, sizes, and scopes. One of the most versatile products we offer is the traditional greenhouse. Customizable to meet the client’s specifications, our line of high-performance New England greenhouses are elegant working spaces that extend the growing season and pair beautifully with surrounding architecture. Today we’re exploring one such greenhouse built in collaboration with Pitman & Wardley Associates out of Salem, Massachusetts. Pitman & Wardley served as general contractor for the Ipswich project while Sunspace Design specialized in the greenhouse design, components, and site installation.
