In the 1850s, the founders of Northwestern University created the City of Evanston along Chicago’s northern lakefront. Evanston impresses with a mix of single-family home architecture from styles like Queen Anne, Italianate, Victorian Gothic, Neoclassical and Tudor to Prairie and even Modern. Home to Scott Simpson and his family, this historic suburb has lead us to everything from restoring mock Tudor manors to creating modern farmhouses. We have enjoyed working on a variety of home building projects, including this favorite Modern Farmhouse Hospitality Home in Evanston.
Evanston is known for its cultural diversity, impressive Big 10 campus, unique lakefront beauty and robust character.

“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.”
