Other Lake Forest home builders and renovation companies may hold a general contractor’s license. Still, few of them have the experience and expertise that Orren Pickell brings to the table—and no one else has the focus on full service that we do. Unlike other firms, our service doesn’t end when the project is complete—Orren Pickell also offers ongoing maintenance services, including 24/7 emergency service—allowing you to keep your luxury home and its systems in top-notch shape.
