About our listings: The professionals and businesses listed here are chosen by the editors of Chicago Home + Garden. We gather leads from trade magazines, from other professionals in the field, and via word of mouth. Listings are independently reported by Chicago Home + Garden writers; they are not related to advertising.
We include only Chicago-area professionals and businesses that deal directly with the public. Many of the people mentioned here have other talents: furniture restorers often sell antique furniture, furniture makers sometimes do upholstery work, some interior designers have expertise in kitchens and baths.
Chris Carey & Co
456 N. Leavitt St.
Turn-of-the-century Victorian homes and vintage condos are among the structures that benefit from the deft handiwork of these multi-talented builders, historical renovators, and remodelers. The firm is equally adept at modern renovations; a recent project was the renovation of a mid-century modern house on a ravine in Lake Forest. Carey’s pros have completed projects in Hyde Park, Bucktown, Wicker Park, and on the Gold Coast, as well as on the North Shore.
