Small Cool Chicago: 10 Tours Under 1000 Square Feet

Some cities (New York, Tokyo, Paris) are known for their multitude of small space homes whereas Chicago has a very varied housing stock in terms of size, within and across our neighborhoods. It's all about the mix here - we've been in super small studios located right around the corner from a triple wide single family mansions! The archive of House Tours originating from Chicago reflect this square footage mix...

....but in honor of small spaces month and our about-to-launch Small Cool Contest, we put together this list of some super, smaller (under 1000 square foot) spaces in our fair city.
