The Before

the first offical photo

I’m in the midst of looking for more information on our home’s original owners; who was the architect, who commissioned the building and who were the first families that lived there, not to mention, what was the purpose of the massive half ton matching stones in our side lot?? I found a great City of Chicago website that I will use to start that mission. .. but more on that later.


Below are the pictures I took the first week we owned the property.

Warning… the below are the less attractive, but essential for documentation!

A single golf clap? Or a long standing ovation?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
