Custom Home Builders in Lake Forest, IL – Design, Build & Remodeling
Incorporated in 1861, Lake Forest, Illinois has long been known as a shining example of the works of some of Chicago’s most talented architects in many of its residential, religious and public buildings. In fact, many architects opted to build and live in estates in the area, including Newberry Library designer Henry Ives Cobb and Navy Pier architect Charles Frost. Today, Lake Forest’s reputation for unparalleled architectural integrity holds true, thanks in large part to the designers and architects at Orren Pickell.

A mere 60 miles south of Milwaukee and 30 miles north of Chicago, Lake Forest offers residents a tranquil setting with quick, easy access to everything the big city has to offer.
Your Lake Forest Home, Your Details
In Lake Forest, homes range from huge estates to small bungalows to everything in between. Ultimately, your home will depend on the style you like and your particular needs and desires. For example, one of our most recent Lake Forest clients wanted a home that was reminiscent of the homes seen in Nantucket, Massachusetts. Our design and build team worked hand-in-hand with the client to deliver a home that included a variety of shingle-style details, including a large wraparound porch, cedar siding and a stone chimney.
