This c.1802 house has been altered very little since it was built, and has never had dormers as many did from the same time period in this part of eastern Pennsylvania. The choice to install VELUX skylights was inspired by a desire to be environmentally responsible and historically appropriate when renovating the third floor of the house into an office. The low profile of the skylights allowed the roof of the house to remain flat and uninterrupted by projections, just as it had been for over 200 years.
