I worked on this project with Breaffy Construction.
This project took a small Chicago house and added to it by building out one side and adding a large second story.
I worked with the owner on the design of this house, the construction drawings and permitting in Chicago, choosing finishes and helping them through the construction process.
We started with a small house:
First step was to dig out for a new basement on one side:
The basement walls were poured and then the side room was built. The roof was demolished from the original. Then a new second story was added across all the house:
The old section of the existing house was gutted:
After drywalling, it all started to come together:
The old stairs was rehabbed in place:
Hardwood floors were laid throughout and matched with oak trim:
