Well, so far it has been an eventful New Year. I was gallivanting through Switzerland and Alsace for 2 weeks enjoying 50 degree weather, immaculate views, and my new engagement!
My second day home in 0 degree weather, I couldn’t wait to see how the Kenwood house was doing. It was so strange to see the house empty after so much activity before I left. After just 6 months, Kenwood feels like my second home – and when I walked in, it greeted me warmly….literally, it was warm. The furnace is on, the plumbing is in, the electrical is wired, and the roofers are closing our ceilings.
All that was left to do was wait for the final verdict from the inspectors. So, after sending emails into the abyss/City, calling for specific dates, then dropping everything for the random date they showed up, I am proud to display our official approval of MEP:
Yaaaaaay. We’re in the home stretch – now on to windows, cleaning, insulation, drywall, and finish carpentry. Now that we finally get to exhale on Kenwood, it’s time for our next project! Please allow me to introduce you to the Hoyne Project:
This is a 3,100 SF 3-flat that will need a gut renovation – full MEP and conversion of the 2nd and 3rd floor into a single family unit. Randy the architect is currently finishing up the Bid Set drawings and we are getting ready to bid next week.
