Lakeview Two Flat

The desire for private outdoor space, a permanent single family residence in the desirable Lake View neighborhood with excellent school and a limited budget presented an interesting challenge which led to an unconventional project search eventually leading to an unexpected solution: a 1901 brick 3 unit rental building which would be convert to a single family home. 


The property was purchased in June of 2019 and in October of 2020, with the appropriate pieces in place, a gut renovation began. 


As a rental property, the building originally consisted of 3 units; a 1 bed, 1 bath. A 2 bed, 1 bath. And a 3 bed 1 bath laid out in the common Chicago two flat floor plan. 


Construction duration lasted approximately 13 months from date of interior demolition. After a gut renovation that included new mechanical, electrical, plumbing and structural updates as well as a 12'  frame addition, new exterior landscaping and patio, as well as a 2 car gargae, this single family home now consists of 5 bedroom, and 3.5 baths.
