A first look inside the Flexhouse2 model

by Joe Zekas on 6/13/14

Flexhouse2 held its model grand opening late yesterday afternoon and one of the well-attended event’s main attractions was the model’s master suite, which occupies the entire top floor of the home.

The oversized master bath has a large window and two entrances. A large walk-in closet, additional closets and a spacious master bedroom complete the suite.

The second floor has two bedrooms and a full bath.

I didn’t shoot the first floor because it held a crowd. It has the sleek, minimalist esthetic that’s typical of Ranquist developments.

Flexhouse2 has an unusually large, for a row home, 50-foot yard and a 2-car garage with a lofted storage area.

You’ll find more details on this Logan Square development at Flexhouse2′s website.

If you’re checking out the neighborhood, the popular Kosciuszko Park is two short blocks west of Flexhouse2. The park has a large field house, a natatorium, ball fields, a tennis court and a playground.

Note: Flexhouse2 has been a YoChicago advertiser.

Any idea what type of siding they used on this project?


Joe Zekas June 13, 2014 at 12:41 PM

You’ll find the answer on the spec sheet (pdf) at the project’s website: “fiber cement board.”

Yeah, saw that before, wasn’t sure if there was a specific brand that they had mentioned to you. No big deal.

I don’t think I’ve ever had a developer or a salesperson highlight the brand of siding on a building.


Hello June 13, 2014 at 3:33 PM

Nichiha I believe is what they use

Thanks Joe. I think there are plenty of developers that highlight Hardie lap or panel siding.

In any event, thanks. And Thanks Hello – I’ll take a look at the brand you mentioned. Finishing up a project and looking at hardie, smart side, etc for a garage. I like the colors Ranquist has used in Flexhouse 1 and 2. Appreciate the info.
