Photos: Cards Against Humanity Founder Buys Quirky Bucktown Home

Max Temkin, the co-founder of Cards Against Humanity, has paid up the better part of $1 million for an ivy-covered Bucktown house full of eclectic details.

The home is a converted machine shop turned live-work space on West Wabansia Avenue, according to its listing. The three-bedroom, 4,500-square-foot was asking for $1.15 million, but Temkin got it for $935,000. The bathroom has a clean, sleek modern look, but the rest of the house is more of a throwback. There are beautiful custom hardwood floors, the spacious kitchen is warm and worthy of a Nancy Meyers film and just look at the detailing on that fireplace.

Curbed Chicago notes that Cards Against Humanity, the local maker of an irreverent card game, has been outspoken about their decision to stick around Chicago.
