Urban:  Chicago Bungalow - Single Family Home Remodel and Addition
  This former 1,000 s.f. circa 1910 bungalow was transformed into a spacious 4-bedroom, 3-1/2 bath luxury single family home. A second story and rear addition, coupled with a major basement excavation more than doubled the living space. "Attic" roof trusses created extra storage space at minimal cost.

  Painstaking care was taken to match the original face-bricks on the second story addition. Historically accurate 3-over-1 windows with true divided lites give the project an historic feel and help the finished product "fit-in" with the surrounding neighborhood. Natural materials, such as wood and granite, give this home a warm and comfortable feeling. Oversized french-doors and transoms wash the kitchen with natural light and connect the inside-living space to an oversized deck and yard. The kitchen wood flooring and deck wood flooring was installed at opposing 45-degree angles for visual interest and to "guide" people through the spaces for living and entertaining.

  Energy-efficient products such as high R-value insulating materials, 2 x 6 outside wall construction, low-e argon-filled double-pain windows and 90%+ efficiency HVAC equipment make this house inexpensive to operate and add comfort and sound-dampening in Chicago's harsh climate and noisy urban conditions. Structured wiring for video, data, voice, security and entertainment future-proof this gem from constantly-changing technology.


Install wood and laminate flooring on a 45-degree angle to add visual interest to your space.
