LeitHaus Studios
Chicago

When the blue building near corner of Ashland and Irving Park Road in Chicago was built in 1893 it may have been destined to be the home of an artistic couple. The Firstenleits have made a music school for kids and a great studio for photography and painting.

Keeping the beat in the heart of Chicago, LeitHaus is the embodiment of the lifelong dreams of two dedicated artists. In 2010, Kerry & Neil Firstenleit founded the LeitHaus soon after they married. This one-of-a-kind home was built when Lakeview was but a 'burb. A lot of heart and hard work went in to making the LeitHaus the dreamhaus it is today.

Kerry has a painting studio. Neil has a recording studio and in the former storefront they are both able to work and play with the community. The Firstenleits are truly lucky to be making music, taking portraits, and living the dream.

Come on by and make yourself at home at the LeitHaus.
