Leslie's Converted Western Electric Warehouse Home

House Call

Name: Leslie
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

Thanks, Leslie!
