Wrigleyville Porch – Project Update

Wrigleyville porch and staircase construction

We recently remodeled this 6 unit 3 flat in Wrigleyville, Chicago. It was completely gutted and converted into separate apartments. A brand new yard with a large deck was installed, as well as brand new kitchens and modern bathrooms. Here’s an update on the exterior portion of this project. We rebuilt the stairs and added a new deck.


Here are some photos so you can see what the back stairs looked like before the remodeling. Click the images to enlarge.

There were three sets of stairs total (one on the left, one on the right, and one on the second floor). If you’re wondering why the stairs are two different colors in the before pictures, it’s because they originally just wanted to paint the stairs, but eventually decided to completely rebuild them.


Here are some photos of what the project looked like during and after the the remodeling process. Click the images to enlarge.

We added a landing area to the top of the stairs on the right. We also extended them out farther so they’re not as steep. Then we added a large deck at the bottom. You’ll also notice that we got rid of the roof above the top set of stairs.
