An 8,600 square foot bowstring truss home in Lincoln Park

You’ve probably experienced the dramatic spaces enabled by bowstring truss construction in a restaurant, garage or other commercial space. The trusses create large, open, maximally flexible space uninterrupted by columns or load-bearing walls.

I’ve seen only a very few single-family homes created within bowstring truss buildings (they rarely have zoning that permits it). The home that Dennis Rodkin and Karen Peterson tour in the above video is the most impressive of the lot.

The 8,600 square foot home, on an oversized lot at 2225 N Lakewood Ave, near DePaul in Lincoln Park, is priced at $4,990,000.
