Rafter Tales: Bigger is not always better.

Just ask Chris Ferguson. Through Ferguson Home Group, Chris has been building and remodeling residential and commercial properties for 7 years. He prides himself on having an eye toward emerging trends. One such trend he sees is a desire to live with affordable urban luxury – simple, but with high quality.

Case in point: The renovated duplex bungalow at 4017 Michaux Street in the Norhill Historic District. Bucking the idea that the square footage of a historic bungalow must be tripled in order to make it saleable, he chose to add a manageable amount of space and place it all under the existing roof. Additional detailing inside and out such as the Cararra marble, the lux master bath and the peacock blue front door make this home special.

The result? A beautiful home that maintains its original character and sold for more than asking price within two weeks.
