After five years in their Lake Forest home, Stacey and David were eager to get to work on the kitchen.
“Love this place! It’s so friendly and the people are always willing to help you out! The parks are beautiful and the schools have the best teachers. We love the fact that the commute is easy and the police regularly patrol the area. We feel safe here. It’s also affordable to find homes that fit your needs. There are many new neighborhoods that are affordable too!” — From a Niche.com review
When it comes to Long Grove, there’s a lot to love.
- The location: Thirty-five miles north of Chicago means it’s close enough to enjoy all the amenities of the big city without the hassles.
- The community: With a plethora of local festivals, unparalleled public schools, and the first historic district in Illinois, Long Grove has much to offer residents and visitors
- The feeling: Long Grove is committed to preserving its “pristine rural charm” with strict building ordinances and plenty of green space.
If you’re brand new to Long Grove and can’t wait to build your dream home, or are already a Long Grove resident and want to create a new home, Orren Pickell Building Group can help. We’ve worked with other Long Grove homeowners to design, build, and maintain their custom homes. We know the ins and outs of Long Grove’s strict building ordinances, allowing us to avoid unwelcome surprises or additional costs.
Getting started on creating your custom Long Grove home is as easy as setting up a complimentary consultation with the Orren Pickell Building Group’s design staff. During that meeting, we’ll get to know you and your needs and will share examples of our past work with you. We’ll ask questions like:

- How will your life change over the next five to ten years?
- How do you like to entertain? Do you host large groups of friends, family and colleagues or smaller, more intimate gatherings?
Your answer to these questions and more will help us make informed design su
