sudler-sothebys-logo3 August 2009 ? The deadline to nominate your Chicago Bungalow for the Richard H. Driehaus Foundation Bungalow Award is August 28, 2009. This recognition is part of the Chicago Historic Bungalow initiative started in 2000 by Mayor Daley. The objective is to preserve Chicago?s most distinctive style of architecture while maintaining affordability. The program offers grant and loan programs to help restore these homes including Bungalow Tax Smart, energy saver grants, and a “Restore, Renovate and go Green” program. Through this initiative, the city offers ongoing seminars, publications and newsletters. The winners of the Driehaus Award will be announced at the 2009 Historic Chicago Bungalow and Green Home Expo on Saturday, October 17 at Chicago?s Merchandise Mart. This annual event is free to the public with more than 140 craftsmen, banks, architects, real estate agents, and other specialists, many of whom bear a “green” designation.
