Gretchen Swanson and Richard Connelly's one story, two bedroom, one bath, bungalow was in dire need of another bedroom and bathroom. In addition, the kitchen needed to be updated and reworked. The hallway leading to the existing bedrooms was modified and extended to provide access to the "New Master Bedroom Suite" that was added to the rear of the existing residence. A "New Covered Back Porch" was also added on off the "Revised Kitchen". The residence is located in the Rose Park South Historical District of Long Beach, Calif. Because of the historical significance of the bungalow and the other houses in the area, approval by the Cultural Heritage Commission along with the traditional City approvals was necessary for the project. Special care was taken in staying true to the original design and detailing.
