After five years in their Lake Forest home, Stacey and David were eager to get to work on the kitchen.
When designing your Lake Bluff custom home, you have numerous decisions to make and multiple options from which to choose. It’s exciting, but it can also feel overwhelming! That’s why the Orren Pickell Building Group guides you step-by-step through the process.
Working with our design and architectural teams and your dedicated project manager, we’ll start off things with a complimentary consultation. During this appointment, we’ll get to know you a bit. What styles speak to you? What layout will work best for your family today and for years to come? How do you like to entertain? Your answer to these questions and more will inform the process and help us help you navigate our next steps.
“I have lived in Lake Bluff for just over 10yrs. There is no better place to live. Train is walking distance, activities for kids and adults alike are competitive and super fun, beach is a bike ride away, nightlife is just right, schools are spectacular and the community is just right. So glad I moved to a great area.” — From a Niche.com review
There’s no denying that Lake Bluff is an ideal location — it’s close enough to enjoy all of the excitement and perks of the big city but without the hassles and stresses associated with city life. And if you’ve decided to make your Lake Bluff custom home a reality, the Orren Pickell Building Group can help. Over the past four decades, we’ve been the design/build firm that many of your Lake Bluff friends and neighbors have chosen. Why? Our reputation for superb quality, award-winning designs, unparalleled services and keen attention to detail all combine to make working with the Orren Pickell Building Group an enjoyable experience.
Whether you have crystal clear ideas of what your Lake Bluff custom home should look like, with Pinterest boards and magazine tear sheets showcasing your style — or you find yourself drawn to a particular style but aren’t sure how to achieve it yourself, we can help. We’ll work with you to create a design plan that fits your needs, reflects your style, and includes thoughtful functionality and features you may not even have realized existed.
Some luxury custom home firms will work with you during the design process, then bid out the construction of your home to other firms. But that isn’t how the Orren Pickell Building Group works. Unlike other firms, we take care of every aspect of the process — from designing your custom home to building it and even maintaining it. The home you see in the rendered drawings is the home that will be built, without running into any unwelcome last-minute surprises.

Just wanted to let you guys know that the cabinets have started going in and OMG we love them!! Krista, I believe you said at some point that the old cabinets would be no comparison to our new ones and honestly that is an understatement! I mean the kitchen is still partly undone . .…

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!

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…
