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 Western Springs home additions contractor and we turn houses into homes. And if the pandemic taught us anything, it’s that there truly is no place like home. As many of us found ourselves spending much more time at home than in years past, we had more time to learn how well our home works for us — and where we wish things were different. Does homeschooling mean that you could use a dedicated space for your children to work on projects? Has your college student decided to move back home for a few years before taking her next step in life? Or are you ready to let your guest bedroom go back to being a guest bedroom and not pulling double-duty as your home office?
Whatever your reason for thinking about adding to your home, the Orren Pickell Building Group can help. For the past 40+ years, we’ve helped homeowners update, beautify, and increase the usefulness of their homes with thoughtful Western Springs home additions. Whether you want to add a much-needed powder room to your downstairs level or envision creating a new primary bedroom with boutique-like closets and a massive en suite bathroom, you can count on the Orren Pickell Building Group to bring your vision to life.
Sometimes, homeowners may hold off on adding to their homes, fearful that the process will bring additional stress to their already-busy lives. But at the Orren Pickell Building Group, we strive to do everything possible to make your home addition an easy, hassle-free process from start to finish. We’ll kick off our engagement by sitting down with you to determine what you have in mind and what you’re trying to accomplish. Then, we’ll show you real-world examples of other home additions we’ve created for clients in Western Springs and surrounding areas, giving you ideas for features and functionality you may want to include in your own home addition.
Once you’ve signed off on your custom home addition design plans, we’ll give the Orren Pickell Building Group’s in-house construction team the green light to get started. And your dedicated project manager will be with you every step of the way, ready to answer questions, communicate changes or concerns, and generally ensure that your home addition project runs smoothly and on time.
The real estate market is hot, making now a great time to invest in your current home and expand its footprint. Get in touch with us today to schedule your complimentary Western Springs 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 . .…

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.
