Très Chic: A Smart, Stylish Parisian Apartment Designed for a Young Family (and Cat, Too)

When we first encountered this exceedingly clever Paris duplex by SABO project, we wondered why it had been dubbed the “Sacha Apartment.” Is that the client’s name?

Urban Rustic: Installing Hardwood Flooring

Editor’s note: This post is one of a series by Eric Whetzel about the design and construction of his house in Palatine, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago. A list of Eric’s previous posts appears below. For more details and more photos, see Eric’s blog, Kimchi & Kraut. In our previous home we had decided not to use any carpet.
