Luxury Custom Home Builders in Mettawa, IL – Design, Build & Remodeling

Mettawa, Illinois offers its residents an ideal scenario: you’re blessed with living in a beautiful, wooded forest preserve, unspoiled by the overdevelopment that affects so many areas, yet tollway access and a plethora of stores are all within minutes, and the airport is just half an hour away. And if you’re looking for the only thing that can make calling Mettawa home even better, it’s living in a custom home designed and built by Orren Pickell Building Group. Whether you already have specific colors, fixtures and features in mind or you’re looking for help in guiding your vision, our experienced designers and architects can help create a design plan that will meet your needs and exceed your expectations.

With fewer than 600 people living in the village as of the 2010 census, Mettawa is small place with a big heart. A rural community committed to environment and sustainability, Mettawa has plenty of room for families to enjoy outdoor activities. In fact, the village’s extensive trail network interconnects five nearby forest preserves, allowing residents to run, walk, bike or ride horses while enjoying the village’s natural beauty.

At Orren Pickell, we aim to complement the area’s natural beauty with equally beautiful custom homes. Each home designed and built by the Orren Pickell team includes high-end finishes that make it uniquely your own. Whether you are looking for the timeless, comfortable luxury of a French country home or your tastes have a more Mediterranean flair, the design professionals at Orren Pickell will guide you through the process of brainstorming, designing and building the home you’ve always dreamed of.

Custom Home Renovation in Mettawa, Illinois

Did you know that you can completely transform the look and feel of your home by simply updating a room or two? Remodeling your original kitchen into a chef-worthy masterpiece or transforming an underutilized basement space into a luxurious wine cellar are both ways that you can add value to your home while also adding to your enjoyment of it.

Orren Pickell Building Group can help. Whether you choose to remodel only one or two rooms or want to remodel your entire home, our experienced team will guide you step-by-step through the process. From helping you determine which space or spaces you wish to remodel to developing and executing on a design plan, we’ll work with you to update your home to better suit your current needs and lifestyle.

The Orren Pickell Building Group is different; we take the same approach to remodeling as we do to building new homes, carefully crafting detailed design plans so that we can sidestep any unwelcome issues.

We offer a variety of remodeling services, including::

Your Orren Pickell project manager will work with you from the beginning of your remodeling project to ensure everything goes smoothly and without the delays or hidden costs that are all-too-common in many renovation projects.
