Just past Chicago's southern border is the quaint town of Blue Island, Illinois. On a quiet, tree-lined street in Blue Island is Chris and Colleen's gem of a home. Using smart planning, a great sense of detail, and a lot of work, they turned a small, dilapidated 1950's ranch house into a bright, hip family home.
