✓ Sunspace carefully milled and prepared the mahogany framing for the custom glass roof system in advance.

✓ Insulated Solarban 70 low-e glass offers clarity and performance.

Project Description

Located in the charming town of Vernon, Connecticut, we worked in close collaboration with local construction pros to produce this lovely Victorian gable conservatory. The Victorian gable conservatory style, characterized by its steeply pitched roof and intricate detailing, is well-suited to picturesque New England, offering homeowners a fusion of classical architecture and contemporary allure. This glass space represents the embrace of tradition and modern amenities alike.

The mahogany conservatory roof frame forms the cornerstone of this project. With the rafters prepared in the Sunspace wood shop, the glass roof system also includes a sturdy structural ridge beam and is outfitted with insulated Solarban 70 low-e glass. The result is both durable and refined. A patented glazing system and gleaming copper cladding complete the product.

Sunspace Design played a pivotal role in the conservatory’s creation, beginning with the provision of shop drawings detailing the roof system design. Once crafted, necessary components were transported to the job site for field installation. Working with Custom Construction Plus LLC, who oversaw the conventional wall construction, and CT Home Designs, the architectural lead, our team ensured a seamless transition between the conservatory roof and the home’s architecture. We craft spaces that elevate everyday living, and we love how this one came out.
