After five years in their Lake Forest home, Stacey and David were eager to get to work on the kitchen.
Orren Pickell is the #1 Barrington home additions contractor and we turn houses into homes.
Do you need a dedicated space to pursue your passion — a music room with perfect acoustics for your budding violin virtuosos, or an art studio filled with perfect light? A home addition is a good choice if you want more space and don’t want to lose existing space by converting a bedroom, den, or utility space.
Home additions don’t just increase your enjoyment of your home, however. Because you’re adding square footage, you’re boosting your home’s value — which can literally pay dividends when you’re ready to sell.
You can count on the Orren Pickell Building Group to design a beautiful, practical home addition that seems as if it has always been a part of your home. For the past 50 years, we’ve helped Barrington homeowners design and construct home additions that add space in a beautiful, practical way, and we can help your family too.
How does the home addition process work? We follow the same process we use when we design and craft our award-winning custom luxury homes. First, we meet with you and discover more about your wants, needs, and preferences, learning more about your style and showing you examples of our previous work that may help spark inspiration. Then, once we agree on a design plan, we hand off the plans to our teams of master craftspeople and vetted trade partners to bring your home addition vision to life.
Home is where the heart is, but if your family doesn’t have the space it needs, it can cause unnecessary heartache! Contact the Orren Pickell Building Group today for more information on adding a room (or several rooms) to your Barrington home.

I wanted to share my final product, which is amazing. I really don’t think the video does it justice. I know y’all typically work on a lot of big projects, but I was thrilled with the planning, selections, advise and execution! Well done and again thank you!
My name is Linda Larson. My husband, John and I have lived in one of the homes you built in Lake Barrington in 1994. We purchased it from David Galimore in 1997 and have lived here happily raising our family of five children. We put the house on the market two weeks ago and want…
Orren Pickell Building Group has repeatedly proven to me how more then 20 years ago, we made the best decision to build a house with them. Since then we purchased another house and used their company to remodel it. We have used The Orren Pickell Maintenance Program for over 20 years, and we will continue…
We hired the Orren Pickell Building Group to both design and build our home, starting in 2013 and completing in 2015.
