Oak Design & Construction Wins Gold Key Award for a Historic Remodel

December 07, 2012

Chicago Real Estate Forum and Marketing RELEVANCE congratulate for winning an Gold in for a .

Remodeling the master bathroom of this architecturally significant home, located in the historic district of Oak Park, was a unique undertaking. We needed to adhere to the restrictions of the Oak Park Historical Commission, such as not changing the look of the exterior or relocating windows, as well as capturing and restoring the original beauty of the era in which the home was built. The house was established in the 1920s.

The century old shared bathroom served both the master bedroom and a second bedroom. The remodel closed off access to the second bedroom allowing it to become the master bathroom. New plumbing, electrical and HVAC were installed. Period specific styles were maintained and the fixtures and moldings were fabricated to match the existing millwork. Modern luxuries were also added such as heated flooring, a recessed towel warming radiator and a large walk-in shower with bench and hand-helds; along with a trenched drain for pleasing aesthetics.
