Additions/Renovations

“ Aside from rebuilding an amazing home for us, George provided a team who worked cohesively throughout the project and maintained a positive attitude while finding a way to work through any challenge. ”

After purchasing a 100 + year old stone carriage house in the estate section of Villanova, Pennsylvania, we hired George Metzler of Rittenhouse Builders and Linda Phillips Designs to remodel and design an overhaul of the interior, including a new kitchen, 2 bathrooms, new woodwork and architectural details throughout. George and Linda collaborated and took our vague vision for the house and turned it into a reality that is even better than we could have ever imagined. Rittenhouse Builders and LPD took the time to really understand us and designed the unique spaces to accommodate the way we live our lives as empty nesters. Aside from rebuilding an amazing home for us, George provided a team who worked cohesively throughout the project and maintained a positive attitude while finding a way to work through any challenge. A renovation like ours was never short on challenges! The project was handled by Gary Mohler who oversaw every detail to make sure the project was done correctly and on time and who we could always turn to for guidance and support when something didn't go as planned. Rittenhouse has an amazing back office team who provide software which made it easy to follow the budget, billing, change orders, scheduling and material selection. All handled by the incredible team of Laura Ressler and Bonnie Bruner. Most importantly, Rittenhouse Builders treat your home as if it was their own. They worry about the details, remain engaged till the bitter end and keep coming back for even the smallest of “punch lists”. They deliver a finished product which will exceed your expectations.
