Historic Renovation and Reconstruction, Chester County, PA
There is something intrinsically beautiful about renovation. It's not only that the construction process was superior in older buildings, which is often the case, but the actual history of a structure – what it was, who used it and how it was used – is in many instances, much more poetic than even the finest quality new construction. Historic renovations blend seamlessly with the architectural styles and period details of the historic structure, while adding the modern convenience, energy efficiency and comfort that building owners need today. There is something truly special about preserving an existing building's historic character, longevity, functionality and value.

Carnevale Eustis renovation projects often require a great deal of creativity but it's something we have become very skilled at and very well known for. Working within the blueprint of an existing structure with the objective of creating a twenty-first century space is a challenge that we embrace. From Chester County farmhouses built in the early 1800s to Phoenixville's famous Colonial Theatre, we are enthusiastic about preserving a sense of history while delivering a design that satisfies the occupants.
