Living in the Matunuck Schoolhouse

Four years ago, we introduced you to Richard and Kristin Schwab, two academics at the University of Connecticut who serendipitously made the former Matunuck Schoolhouse their home. The couple had long term plans to reinvent parts of the 1904 schoolhouse both inside and out. In the winter of 2012, those plans took an unexpected turn when the Schwabs came home only to find burst pipes, a flooded basement, unsalvageable ceilings and walls and a severely damaged kitchen. “It was a nightmare,” Richard says bluntly. “It was awful at first but, then… we might as well embrace it,” reflects Kristin, conceding that while there were home improvement plans on the horizon, the couple had no intentions of doing them so quickly. The couple’s insurer had a disaster team, Westerly-based ServiceMaster by Mason, in place right away. The team spent nine hours bailing out water and tearing out water-soaked ceilings and walls. When the couple had a blank – but finally dry – slate, they took inventory of everything that needed to be replaced, and things they wanted to replace. “We decided to bite the bullet and make the kitchen of our dreams,” says Richard. “It was a 1980s kitchen, but they had done it nicely,” explains Kristin. “That’s why we were reluctant to do it [initially].”
