Set amid more than an acre of green space in Lake Forest, this stunning custom home achieves a level of warmth and intimacy one might be surprised to find in a 4,500 s.f. property.
Orren Pickell is a top-rated Lake Bluff basement remodeling company.
In the past, basements got a bad rap. In movies, the basement was the dungeon-like area where the scary things live, ready to pounce on unexpecting homeowners. In television shows and other areas of popular culture, basements were often shown as cluttered storage areas filled with old furniture and emergency supplies.
But it doesn’t have to be that way! Today’s basements are roomy, spacious, and filled with natural light. They can (and should) be an extension of your living space, with the same attention to detail, custom touches, and thoughtful design elements seen in your home’s main living area.
Ready to make the most of your basement? The Orren Pickell Building Group can help. As one of Lake Bluff’s top-rated basement remodeling firms, we have 40+ years of proven experience in designing and constructing beautiful, functional basement spaces.
What can you do with your basement? Practically anything that you can imagine! Perhaps you’d like to transform part of your basement into an apartment for your adult child, giving him his own space with a private entrance. Or maybe you’re interested in adding a home gym with weights, workout equipment, and other tools to help you and your spouse stay healthy and in shape? Or what about a craft room with custom shelving and cabinetry to hold paints, paper, and other art supplies?
