Shout Out for a Neighboring Chicago 2-Flat

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".

Thanks Joanne! I really want to have a chicago blogger meet up sometime soon. Wouldn't that be fun? Steve and I both like your building alot. You have so much green space too and it must get great light being on a corner lot!

That does sound like a lot of fun! Count us in.

The corner does receive a lot of light; the two smaller bedrooms on each level are a bit dark, but the rest of the place is flooded with natural light. The garden will take some time to establish, but at least it's enough sunlight for fruit trees.
