In this picture you see two additions to the original stone building from 1928. Our new stone and our workmanship had to blend seamlessly with the old. To accomplish this we hoarded stone removed from the building to make new window and door openings and we made stone veneer from the blast rock we obtained from the pool construction. The original stone of the house was made from the same ledge we blasted for the pool. The end result is a completed building where you cannot discern the new from the old.
All our mechanical rooms are designed and laid out by E.M. Rose. We like to say "If you want to know how good a builder is go look in places where few people are interested in looking." The careful organization of our mechanical rooms speak to the value of an E.M. Rose building beyond the pretty details you see in the finished spaces. Our efforts also serve to make the home easier and less expensive to care for.
French Norman Manor
In the case of all of our remodeling projects, we leave the house looking as if we were never there. The Architect, Huestis Tucker Architects, defined the style of project, but only through our workmanship and choices of materials could we disguise our work from the original. We added hand details throughout the exterior of the house to complete the style as a French Norman house.
