A Victorian Gable Conservatory in Vernon, CT

by | Nov 19, 2023 | Construction

Our glass sunrooms, conservatories, and orangeries are available in a variety of architectural styles, including fully custom designs that pair uniquely with your existing structure. Today’s clients opted for a timeless glass space: the Victorian conservatory. Typically featuring a bay front with a pitched roof and ornate roof ridge, Victorian conservatories are great fits for classically beautiful homes.

The conservatory featured below was introduced to the client’s home in Vernon, Connecticut. Custom Construction Plus LLC served as the general contractor, while CT Home Designs was the architectural lead. Sunspace Design contributed to the team effort by designing the roof system, manufacturing the mahogany conservatory roof components, and by performing a complete field installation. Explore the following photos to get a behind the scenes view of the construction process!
