WHY I KNOW OLD HOMES (unfortunately)
320 Euclid Then
Ok, so maybe not “unfortunately” (because now we have a beautiful home but it has taken us 5 years to get to this point--see below for the after photo of our house). My wife, Julie, and I have lived through it all!
Complete re-wiring of our 1891 Victorian
Outfitted 2 homes with central AC (both I co-designed)
One complete 2nd floor renovation (4 bedrooms and 2 full baths)
Total roof tear-off and added architectural copper from Vermont
Complete siding strip of the Victorian, insulate, repair and paint
Office addition (You have to have nice quiet place to work to make the money to pay for all this stuff!!!)
So much more!!!
320 Euclid Now
We just received a 2005 Village of Oak Park Historic Preservation Award for the 2004 job of restoring the porch to original and painting. And we have so much more to do!
I know the homes. I know the contractors. I know the villages and their guidelines. I’m not a know-it-all. I just know a lot.
My clients continue to call me for years after they have purchased. They know I will continue to help them find the people and resources to maintain, improve and update their Oak Park or River Forest home.
