This Northwest-Chicago suburban family of four was in need of a home renovation and second-level expansion.

To remain consistent with the English Tudor-styled home, Widler Architectural’s exterior design included prominent steeply sloped gables dominating the main façade and sawn-timber detailing.

The interior was opened up and overhauled with modern amenities, yet was infused with classic crown molding and English-cottage architectural accents. The design included a remodeled dining room and first-floor bathroom; kitchen expansion; family room and mudroom addition; and the conversion of an attic into two children’s bedrooms and new bathroom.
