Quite a few years ago, we toured several Orren Pickell homes in Bannockburn IL. The outstanding quality, the unique design and the attention to detail left a lasting impression on us. When we decided it was time for us to have our dream home built, we knew we had to call Orren Pickell. Our first call to their office was to inquire about getting their advice on two different parcels of land we were interested in buying. Orren and his team went to both of the lots and performed a thorough analysis on both lots then invited us to their office for a comprehensive presentation showing us the pros and cons of each lot. Their knowledge and advice was key to us selecting the proper lot. We are now almost ready to being excavation. As the other reviewers have said, the entire process for us has been truly wonderful. Every single staff member is extremely competent, creative, fun, helpful and their teamwork is very impressive. The Pickell group is excellent at listening to what we want and incorporating our particular (and sometimes quirky!) wants and needs into our design. We are so excited to begin the stage where we watch our dream house transform from blueprint to a final product.
