When you live in the same home for 30 years, the house itself undergoes a sort of evolution. We talk with Robert and Pattie, who've lived in University City for decades, about the projects Bellweather has done to help their family enjoy their space as the years go by.
We talk to Charlie Hall, a rock drummer who's owned his home in Philadelphia's Graduate Hospital neighborhood since 2004. Last year, he and his wife Anne hired Bellweather for a dramatic remodeling of their home's kitchen, resulting in a beautiful, functional family space.
One of our repeat clients dreamed of adding more space to accommodate her growing family. But, her West Philadelphia rowhouse didn't allow for much expansion. Her family could use the space for only a small portion of the year; her goal was to transform it into a usable space year-round.
Our clients envisioned their basement as a getaway - an oasis tucked away in their Philadelphia twin. But as it stood, their basement was lifeless, colorless. We helped them manage a few moisture problems, modify a few ducts, and then we put a pool in the middle of it all.
Gloucester City's City Hall was in need of repair: its two well-worn cupolas were the last remnants of the hall's architectural past and they were scheduled to be demolished. As members of the local historical commission, Bellweather Construction worked with Gloucester City to save the two cupolas.
One of our clients wanted to exposed rafters in their 3rd floor studio, but didn't want to compromise their attic insulation. So, along with the architect, we came up with our own "exsulation" solution.
