Did you recently remodel your bathroom? Would love GC recommendations. 🙏🏼 As advertising folks, I am assuming you have good design sensibilities and taste. Where did you look for inspiration?

Why do you think we work in advertising? This is a general Chicago bowl


Oh, wow. How did I get in here? 😳

Doing a gut rehab of a greystone. It’s miserable. Big money project. Didn’t really know what I was getting myself into. The only thing that is keeping me from going insane is that my GC is all over the details and is also someone I trust implicitly.

Feel free to DM me for GC contact details.


Past that stage of the process. Had a few surprises, such as…this side of the house is held up by a pipe because a prior nitwit took out the brick here to accommodate a pipe. But nothing as bad as asbestos.

For me, the lowest moment was stepping into a basement where the concrete was ripped out and the basement was just dirt and exposed foundations. That was a, “My God, what have I done to myself,” kind of moment.

That’s the thing with these rehabs: You understand the words you are saying, but sometimes…You see the consequences of your words and you start wondering whether you are the dumbest person on the planet.

I would also say the danger with rehabs is the homeowner themselves. I am the greatest threat to my own bank account. I have a joke that’s kind of serious…every time I go to the house, it costs me $15k in a new inspiration / upgrade. Every time I go to the house with my fiancée, it costs me $50k plus.

A GC is a general contractor who manages construction projects. Now you know.

Remodeling a bathroom and kitchen in my unit in my Chicago 2-flat. Phew, it is not cheap, everything is more expensive right now. Plus, my place is old and we find additional work everytime something is gutted. I got my inspiration from Pinterest. I also shopped around for fixtures, cabinets, vanities etc, to get the best price on good quality items. Found my GC through friend recos.
