Private Residences

Leavitt Street Renovation
Chicago, IL

This century-old wood frame two-flat was in dire need of structural stabilization prior to its conversion to a single family home for a vibrant urban family. The owner literally made sure they were on a solid, stable foundation before continuing the rehabilitation for the next century of its life.

Phase I included converting the ground floor unit into a Family Room, Powder Room, Mud Room, and Master Suite.

Phase II rejuvenated the second floor Kitchen and Dining Room while adding an Exercise Room and Office.
