Custom Made Orangeries & Conservatory Roof Conversion

Custom Made Orangeries & Conservatory Roof Conversion


What is an Orangery?  It sounds exotic, but originally it was just that, “a place to cultivate oranges”.

This developed in style between 17th until 19th century to become a fashionable addition to grand houses. It now is really a development of a Conservatory, but has more brickwork and features a ceiling area which has usually a glass lantern roof.

In recent years it has steadily become more and more popular, and is a real alternative to a Conservatory. It is more of an all year round room with the latest Glazing and insulating to walls, and is really an extension to your home, but is still classed under conservatory category, so often Planning is not required.
