Imagine turning an old school house into your home? Well that’s exactly what this couple did in Lincoln Park, Chicago to a century old school house. Not only is this home pretty cool, but it has many green concepts to it such as a geothermal system to heat the home during the cold Chicago winters. Some other cool features of the home are the 9 skylights scattered throughout to bring ample lighting into the home, a live edge kitchen counter top with frameless cabinets that blend into the wood interiors, a large mud room for this family of 7 (mom and dad plus 5 kids) and 3 washers and dryers! What I love most about this house is the exposed timber floor joists that were uncovered, as well as the flooring planks, counter tops, benches and ceiling treatments which were all made using salvaged wood from the basement and roof.
This home has 6 bedrooms, 2.5 washrooms and 8,500 sq ft of coolness, take a look:
