Chicago gray and brown stone homes have already withstood the test of time. In fact, all that stone and brick work has a character that is virtually impossible to replicate. As building costs have continued to rise, more clients are showing interest in converting their two flats into single family homes.
The house conversion process is extensive and requires expertise that we learned by renovating our own projects on a speculative basis. Often these gem homes are fit with basement ceilings that require full dig out and underpinning to raise the ceiling heights to modern levels. Steel lovers will fall head over heals with the installation of beams and columns required to give your two flat to single family renovation the open space on the main level. These house conversion projects can be as simple as adding an open stairway to the second level and as extensive as a full gut remodeling project that leaves only the exterior brick and stone that was used when the project started 100 years ago. Most contractors will avoid taking on these beastly projects, but we have a special place in our heart from them, and you will too once we complete your dream design.
