One of our favorite master bathrooms started from humble beginnings. It was long and narrow with a single sink, no tub, and a tiny shower that had been conceded to the cat. We were challenged by our client to take it down to the studs and expand it for a double vanity, enclosed toilet, tub, enlarged shower, and new built-ins for storage.

This 1925 Colonial limped into our lives in need of a head-to-toe overhaul. We obliged with a new roof, electrical, plumbing, insulation, kitchen, and bathrooms. The basement was finished, and the attic found new purpose as a "treehouse" with a bedroom and bonus room. We maintained the original spirit of the home while rejuvenating it for the next 90 years.    

 

 

This 1980's era Glencoe home near the lake underwent a major transformation from three to five bedrooms with efficient space planning. Luxury finishes do not compromise the lean design sensibility. A completely reimagined layout with new mechanicals, windows, kitchen, bathrooms, closets, and dual laundry rooms included moving the side entry to the front of the house, fresh landscaping, and more than 3,000 square feet of new oak hardwood floors. 

Logan Square Single Family Home

 

This Chicago single family home called for a new kitchen, bathrooms, basement, paint, and new character for the new owners on a limited budget.  

 

 

 

This 1920's bungalow benefited by opening the floor plan and updating the living areas. All new Viking appliances, quartz countertops, lighting, and a marble backsplash modernized the kitchen while acknowledging the historical character of the home. New bathrooms, paint, lighting, and mechanicals completed the renovation.

 

This mid-century Cape Cod home needed a new layout, major electrical and plumbing upgrades, and plenty of attention after years of deferred maintenance. A new open floor plan, along with new kitchen, bathrooms, flooring, lighting, windows, mechanicals, trim, paint, and landscaping returned form and function to the current owners.
