TKS Design Group’s Vintage French Farmhouse Project Featured in American Farmhouse Style Magazine

Glen Ellyn, IL – TKS Design Group is excited to announce their latest feature in the esteemed “American Farmhouse Style” magazine, June/July 2024 edition. The feature showcases the remarkable renovation of a unit in an 1890s building turned second home by owners Jim and Susan Klimala, located just four blocks from Chicago’s iconic Wrigley Field.

TKS Design Group’s Jim and Susan Klimala embarked on a heartfelt project to revive the space, integrating modern conveniences while preserving the historic allure. The renovation included essential updates to the HVAC, electrical, and plumbing systems, alongside necessary structural enhancements to address uneven flooring and aging plaster.

Susan Klimala expressed her enthusiasm about the project, saying, “It’s rewarding to share the transformation of this vintage home with “American Farmhouse Style” readers. It was essential for us to preserve the original spirit of the house, which led us to carefully maintain features like the heart pine floors, vintage moldings, pocket doors, and transoms that first drew us to this property.” Ms. Klimala concluded.
