Contemporary Conservatory Company's US offices are represented by a small team of dynamic people dedicated to providing quality design and craftsmanship at very competitive prices. 


Robert Langston, Master Craftsman, has spent twenty years building world class conservatories in four countries, each having distinct and different construction standards: the UK, France, Germany and the United States. His work ranges from the opulent to the modest, always custom designed to each property's architecture and never prefabricated. He is on site from design to construction and available to the client throughout.   

Window design in these four countries varies enormously. The bug screen, found on most US windows and doors, is simply not found in Europe. Sliding sash windows were common on Victorian-era properties in the UK, and their modern double-glazed equivalents are now common in the US.  In France inward-opening windows are common whilst German houses often have distinctive tilt and turn windows, which again open inwards. We have experience in manufacturing all these different types of window. Since permanently relocating to the US, Robert has spent time working with established contractors to learn first hand how American homes are constructed. Useful contacts have been established with specialized trade subcontractors and reputable suppliers of native and exotic lumber.

Megan Elizabeth Corry, Chief Executive Officer, is our marketing expert from Harvard Business School. Working closely with Robert, she has initial client contact to survey and select projects. She serves as liason between homeowner and Master Craftsman to be sure both parties needs are met as your constant contact through the inquiry, design and construction process.

Chris Corry, Chief Technology Officer, is our Webmaster and IT expert, actively developing tools to calculate price and workflow. This gives potential clients an accurate estimate of cost without obligation before signing a contract with us.

There are many factors to think about when considering an addition. Firstly, what is the new space to be used for- a new dining or breakfast room, a kitchen addition, a lounge or play room or somewhere to site a hot tub perhaps. Once you are clear what the new space is to be used for, then you may need to consider some if not all of the following:

Where will the addition be sited?

What aspect will the new room have?

How will the new room be accessed from the main house?

How easy will it be to run services to the new room?

Will you need an upgrade to your electrical system?

How will you heat the new room?

What A/C requirements do you have?

What will the new addition look like?

What kind of flooring will you need?

How much will it cost?

Is an addition a sound investment?

These are not always easy questions to answer but we try to give prospective customers an early indication of likely costs by setting out some early design parameters. If you can send us photographs, rough sketches and approximate dimensions for proposed work, we can at least provide an initial estimate of likely costs without obligation.

To provide a formal quotation, scale drawings and full specification of proposed works is a process that can take 1-2 weeks. An initial meeting with a client is arranged where we sit down and listen to what you require and wish to achieve. We will certainly make suggestions as to what is possible, and will undertake a full survey of your property in order to produce design drawings for your new addition. A formal quotation will be produced together with an anticipated time frame for the work to be completed.

Depending on your location and complexity of design this service will cost in the region of $500 - $1,500.
