Location: West Loop, Chicago
I live in a converted warehouse. It was a Western Electric facory built around 1900, converted into condos in 1991. We've lived here (we own it) since December 2009...
My favorite things about it: exposed timber beams, bricks and ductwork
My style: eclectic industrial
Challenges: upgrading contractor cabinets and finishes, and integrating a work-from-home office for myself
Proudest DIY: installing red IKEA cabinets, tiling fireplace and backspash, making curtain rods with magnetic fasteners
