Chester, CT

John R. Schroeder, AIA worked with the client to develop preliminary plans for a major renovation.  On the first floor, plans were developed to capture a covered exterior porch as interior space for a new kitchen, bathroom, and laundry room.  On the second floor, bedrooms were expanded by relocating the central stair in a way that captured extra floor space.  The client also desired to add a third floor by removing the gable roof and creating a low Italianate style roof.
