Scope of Services

This antique home is located in a rural area of Foster, Rhode Island.  The original portion of the house was built in the early nineteenth century and straddles an active underground spring.  Designed for a couple who enjoy gourmet cooking, the focal point of the new addition is a large Kitchen with restaurant grade cooking equipment.


Because of the fragile nature of the original roof structure, the roof of the new addition was designed to cantilever across to the existing roof without actually bearing upon it.


Exterior materials consist of stained cedar shingles to match the original with an asphalt shingle roof and windows and skylights to complement the existing.
