Transforming an 1898 schoolhouse into a modern home
Vanguard Roofing has recently been contracted to build and transform an 1898 schoolhouse into a modern home. This is a very ambitious restoration of a two-room schoolhouse located in Upper Hanover, PA.
Shown Below: Below is a gallery of pictures of what remains of the 124-year-old historic building that has been derelict for years. We will continue to post pictures and provide updates on how this project is progressing.
Situated on Schoolhouse Road in East Greenville, the little schoolhouse will soon be transformed into a 2 bedroom, 2 bath, with an open floor plan which includes a large deck. Due to the historical past of the building, the aim is to keep what’s left of the structure (stone, concrete, exterior walls, belltower, and marble stone plaque which reads “Built by Upper Hanover School District 1898”.) and build/extend the extra rooms and roof. Vanguard Roofing is partnering with Lucas Renovations this September to start the project, with the hope to complete it within a year.
