Plymouth Meeting Home

Comfortably Composed

Architecture By: Period Architecture

If you’ve never taken on a major renovation, here’s a job to encourage you. Our homeowners, construction novices at the outset, could picture their growing family here, even before the major overhaul the home required.

With clarity and architectural drawings, we got started by removing some misguided changes while preserving the best historic elements of the exterior. We re-pointed the stone and reworked the trim. We added dormers and new windows and completely reconfigured the second floor. High efficiency insulation increased the comfort while reducing noise inside. The living room came alive with refinished floors and reclaimed beams at the ceiling. Outside, a new stone sitting wall defined another new living space. The home and the family have evolved nicely through this process together.

“After a long, comprehensive search last year for a builder for a complete home renovation, I decided on Rittenhouse Builders. Early on, before we even purchased the home, Rittenhouse Builders visited the property and provided me with thoughts, suggestions and ideas on a periodic basis. Never in ‘sales mode,’ but rather a company who has a passion for homes; from the beginning, the relationship with Rittenhouse was truly a partnership.”

“With a project of this size, cost, flexibility, and relationship were the critical components to making the finished product a success. Having moved into our ‘new’ home two months ago with a year of hard work behind us, Rittenhouse Builders proved to be the best choice.”

“Rittenhouse Builders worked with us through the entire process – from working through the entire selection process (tile, counters, kitchen cabinets, lighting, bathroom cabinets, hardware, etc.), all while providing options to help stay on budget. While this partnership started some time ago, it continued even after move-in, making sure every last detail was taken care of. I highly recommend (and already have) Rittenhouse Builders to any homeowner looking for a renovation of any size.” – Tim and Cathy
