Our clients love their charming home nestled in the heart of the Waveland Park Neighborhood near Roosevelt High School but were eager to create a hang out space for their growing boys. Every home has limited space but with careful planning and an eye for the creative, we were able to create space within the home’s original footprint. We reframed the roof structure making exceptional use of the attic space by raising the ceiling height and creating a bright and airy space for lounging with friends or family game night. Soon after, our clients returned with a new
challenge, and we were tasked with upgrading a dark underutilized space in the basement to become a clean and bright laundry room. In this space, we removed no longer needed HVAC ducting, decades of altered pipes and wiring, and removed asbestos throughout the basement. We’ve since also added custom furniture that reflects the historic character of the home and
upgraded the pantry.
