Personalization is the name of the game these days, from our clothing styles to the curated advertisements the algorithms give us on our social media apps of choice. If you can set the light bulbs in your home to the colors you want, shouldn’t you also be able to build a greenhouse made specifically for your needs?
We think you should, and that’s why we’re highlighting one of our supporters, Wisconsin Greenhouse Company. Nearly two decades ago, Jordan Hosking (owner/son), Ray Hosking (his dad) and other family/friends/employees installed greenhouse projects nationwide for some of the country’s largest greenhouse manufacturers. In the process of contracting more than 200 projects over the first decade, they became a sought-after leader in the greenhouse and solarium industry installation world. Jordan decided to bring the company back home to Wisconsin.
Today, Wisconsin Greenhouse Company services greenhouse sales, installation and service repairs across the Midwest for a variety of different greenhouse projects. They offer many home additions including free-standing and lean-to greenhouses for both luxury and hobby gardeners.
They work with many of the best greenhouse manufacturers in the country to find a product that suits both the project design and budget. There is no project too large or too small for the Wisconsin Greenhouse Company, and they take pride in being available to customers when they are in need.
So why design your own greenhouse instead of purchasing a cookie-cutter one? That personalization is key. A freestanding greenhouse can be placed anywhere on your property to optimize sunlight – the size is determined by your available space and budget. Want something closer? The lean-to option adds extra living and growing space while being close to your utilities. An added benefit is the additional solar gain on your home and the wall where the greenhouse is installed is protected from the elements and lasts longer.
There’s also the gable-attached greenhouse, which is often used as an extension, addition, conservatory or breezeway connecting buildings. This option connects to a door leading to the main building, and these structures are often so well integrated they look like part of the original design. Sounds great, right?
