DESIGN + BUILD OF LUXURY HOMES ACROSS NORTH SHORE COMMUNITIES

A great way to get to know us is through our clients! After 30 years of designing and building custom homes on Chicago’s North Shore for so many families, we are truly grateful for their kind words and lasting friendships.
Committed to Our Values
At Scott Simpson Design + Build, we are highly dedicated to our clients, our work, and our community.
In every single thing we do, we live and work by these core values.
Our clients are everything. We will work for you — to realize what you and your family have been dreaming about for your home. We will work with you — collaborating to deliver an elevated and beautiful space.
ARTISAN BUILDING & INTEGRITY
We thrive on the challenges inherent in designing, building and restoring the North Shore’s most distinguished homes. We’re committed to the highest quality in craftsmanship, selecting the most appropriate and unique materials, and respecting a home’s architectural intent — its environment, distinct features, and day-to-day practical functions.
SUSTAINABLE, GREEN BUILDING
A great homebuilder is one who can produce beautiful work, with environmental sensitivity and conscientiousness. Scott Simpson Design + Build aims to make sustainability more accessible — and attainable — to every homeowner. We adopt green practices and recycle, reclaim and reuse materials as often as possible.
We don’t just donate to causes within our community — we’re also deeply involved in them – offering our time, energy, and creativity. We actively support causes that will improve quality of life — both within our North Shore community and nationally. Learn more about the organizations we support, and how you can get involved.
“We planned on talking to three or four different builders and we met with Simpson and then we didn’t meet with anybody else.”

“SSDB is part of an echelon other builders are not – so much quality, so much devotion, such a distinct style and the ability to deliver. I feel exactly the way I wanted to feel in my new home. Our door is open 24/7 whenever you want to show anyone your wonderful work!”

“We greatly appreciate all of you – your talent, and the work you are doing on our house. The people make the project and you are all amazing. Next year happy hour on the porch at this time!”
~ Northbrook Eco-Conscious Design and Build
“Thank you for the thoughtful education all the way through the design and build. I daresay your standards were even higher than ours. We are so glad you were there to keep us on track, simplify everything and even bring joy into it all! This is probably unusual to say about a contractor – but we are thrilled to have taken this journey with you and to have made new friends as well as a new house.”
~ Wilmette New Home Design and Build
“I know I wrote you something after our final walk-through but seeing you here just now – offering your assistance a year and a half later – I just want to say thanks for making us feel like a priority even after our project was done. It’s the best “in” having picked you guys.”
