Introducing Smith Barrow House

Living in downtown Chicago, Adam and Sarah encountered a common issue- space. So, this growing family of three decided to explore outside the city limits. Disappointed in their initial search, they began to look instead for a home that could be remodeled into their perfect space.


Ember & Brune came on the scene after the couple found a home for sale in the coveted downtown area of a nearby suburb. Meet Smith Barrow House.

After consulting with the couple on how to improve the space within a reasonable budget, we proposed an 8′ addition on the back of the home, along with some interior reconfiguring.


This will provide Adam and Sarah with a large open kitchen and living room area, master bath with walk in closet, powder room, mud room and simply more space throughout the entire house.


And here we are now! Walls are up!
