Just a short train ride to the downtown Chicago, La Grange is a fantastic suburb to raise a family, commute to work, and enjoy the expansive urban offerings of restaurants, bars, shops, and festivals that downtown La Grange is known for. Full of large Victorian and craftsman four-square homes on a carefully laid-out grid, LivCo has brought its creativity to numerous award-winning projects in La Grange, through expansions, renovations, and additions.
These historic homes have grand living spaces, but the kitchens and baths were typically cramped and designed for a different time. It takes an expert design and architecture team like LivCo to be able to creatively plan and figure out how to open walls while structurally supporting the spaces above.
Through our design process we have been able to create open plans in older compartmentalized homes, build upwards on historic farmhouses, and extend the interior social spaces to the entertaining areas of the back yard.
“We have been working with Liv Companies on the major kitchen and bath remodel of our LaGrange, IL home, which included removing big walls, new electrical, and new plumbing. We wanted a character home with a more modern layout, but were intimidated by the renovation process. Dave and Russ have made the whole thing so easy from start to finish. When we were house hunting, they helped us understand the potential of homes as well as the budget that would be required to help us achieve our vision. During the renovation process, working with a company where the architect and the builder are partners and have a track record of working together made the whole process smooth and seamless. Most importantly, the design and the execution of that design was flawless and we could not be more pleased with the outcome. Liv Companies helped us create a custom home that is perfect for our family (and stayed on budget!).”
“Liv Companies did an extensive renovation/addition to our home and we couldn't be happier. They walked us through the process, collaborated with us at every stage and even took some last-minute curve balls with positivity and professionalism. Our house is old, so I appreciated their extensive knowledge about do's and don'ts and their expertise in making sure the new fit seamlessly with the old. Dave has great attention to detail and you can tell he really cares about the final outcome. I completely trusted his opinion and leaned on him for design ideas. And maybe most importantly, Liv really listened to what we wanted our home to become and they made sure it happened. We would definitely use them again.”
