2 months of searching and dozens of apartments behind us, we've signed a lease on a converted factory brick loft in Chicago's West Loop. The space has never been lived in and it shows. Using Joan's Master's Degree in Interior Architecture as a bargaining chip, we negotiated a budget from the management to remodel the loft into a desirable living space. Looking at the space, we see we have some work ahead of us.
Each of us has moved EVERY YEAR since coming to the city and we're effing tired of it. We're staying here, sink or swim.
|Empty. Raw. Feed me.|
|That enormous kitchen island? Going bye bye.|
|Enormous Western facing windows. Indoor tanning anyone?|
|What a tasty delight this kitchen is... not. It has to go. And yes, that bathroom is yellow.|
