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 the #1 Lake Bluff home additions contractor and we turn houses into homes.
According to Houzz, spending on home additions and home renovations has hit record levels, the highest since 2018. And that’s no surprise — with the pandemic causing many of us to stay at home, we’ve had plenty of time to look around our homes and determine what’s working for us and what isn’t. Do you find yourself wanting a dedicated area for your children to do homework or remote schooling? Did your college student move back home after graduation, and she needs a new space to call her own? Is “working from home” proving to be your new normal, and you and your spouse each need your own home offices?
Regardless of your reason for wanting to add to your home, the Orren Pickell Building Group is ready to help. For the past four decades, we’ve helped homeowners in Lake Bluff and across the Chicago metro area to upgrade and transform their current homes with beautiful home additions. Whether you want to add a four-season room to your home, letting in more natural light year-round, or you want to build a studio apartment atop your existing garage to accommodate adult children, we’re ready to help make your dream addition a reality.
At the Orren Pickell Building Group, we strive to make the home addition process easy and enjoyable. We’ll start with a free consultation, asking questions about your current home, your needs, and your preference, and making suggestions on solutions that may work. Once we’ve developed a design plan, we’ll hand off those plans to the craftsman on our award-winning in-house construction team to get started. And just like with every Orren Pickell project, you’ll have a dedicated project manager assigned to your home addition project, ready to address any concerns you have and keep you updated throughout the whole process.
Don’t wait another moment to start making your homework better for you and your family with a home addition. Contact us today for a free home addition consultation.

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!
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.
