Design Philosophy
The design and construction of any room addition onto your home should be done very carefully. A sunroom, greenhouse, or conservatory presents unique issues and challenges that if approached correctly allow the room to bring light, and energy into the home. The challenges arise when building with glass exposes us to the 12 seasons of the Vermont climate. The light and energy our projects bring to your home is made possible through our experience with state-of-the art technology and our dedication to our work.
 
Green Building

Vermont Sun Structures is a locally grown business that builds with advanced techniques, pursues renewable energy, and uses durable non-polluting materials.
