Wolcott Home

A 1990's home in Bucktown gets a current-day update

The Challenge

This 1990‘s era Jim Lucas home was starting to show its age. The heavy masonry block wall dominated the entire east side of the home, the kitchen which opened directly to the garage was dated and the family room and dining room areas were tight whilst the spacious sunken living room was swimming in space. 


The Solution

Relocating the dining room to the spacious living room allowed us to reconfigure the kitchen to include a large island, a new wet bar and casual meals area, whilst maintaining space for a small family room, and a much needed mud room to separate the kitchen from the direct garage entry. A white wash softened the ominous masonry wall which now serves as the perfect backdrop for artwork. Other updates such as new stair railings, lighting fixtures throughout and a new pergola on the roof top deck completed the overhaul.  *Furniture staging by others
