    Default Suggestions for a greenhouse/conservatory construction

    Hello people ! I am planning to construct a large Victorian conservatory (aprrox 10,000 sq ft.) at my farm house near Pune, India. There are no Indian companies that are constructing glass houses or Victorian conservatories. Also the info I find on the net regarding conservatories is limited to very small structures ( max 1500 sq ft.). All/any ideas suggestions are welcome. As compared to my current small 600 sq ft.Greenhouse, this will be a massive undertaking and I want it to be perfect, please please help me out.

    Thanks in advance Amey

    Amey,

    You might be able to get information by contacting other larger conservatories around the world. I know there are a number of them. Here is a link to the one here in Seattle:

    Friends of the Conservatory - Volunteer Park

    I know there are others as well. I would assume they can generally be contacted by e-mail.
