A classic Maine barn is fitted with a traditional year-round greenhouse.
- The client wished to add a greenhouse to the front of this historic barn.
- The goal was to provide a working greenhouse with insulated glass for year-round use.
- Key design considerations included important modifications to the barn’s front elevations.
Sunspace Design is a company that prides itself on being able to meet the specific needs of a client. We offer a number of custom glass products, and in this case we had the pleasure of modifying a gorgeous Maine barn.
The clients lived in a rural section of the state, and the property featured a beautiful turn of the century home and barn. Avid gardeners, the clients wished to incorporate a new year-round greenhouse into the barn’s existing facade. To achieve this, we worked with the owners to carefully establish the desired look of the barn. The end result is a seamless transition between the facade and the glass structure we provided.
Utilizing an aluminum frame system, Sunspace was able to provide a gable with glass valleys at a slope so as to blend with the existing slope of the barn’s roof. The addition of automated power-operated roof vents, interior fans, and insulated glass completed the system and provided the clients with the perfect addition for their gardening needs.
