Jocelyn and Steve of Chicago Two-Flat are my inspiration for what The Box House can become. Their two-flat, which is just across the border in Rogers Park, is about fifteen or so years older than ours, but has several similarities. They've been working on it for a number of years now, and it's absolutely beautiful.
They've just been featured in an article for the Chicago Reader, a local arts and culture publication. Visit their blog, and then read about them in the article "The Bloggers".
