At Scott Simpson Design + Build, we have more than 30 years of experience in the architecture and building of custom homes in Wilmette, Illinois. Our North Shore architects and builders specialize in new home construction, large-scale remodels, historic renovations and eco-conscious green building projects.

Wilmette is a beautiful community on the North Shore of Chicago and home to our first-ever clients. These clients were so satisfied with our work, they ended up building a second home with us several years later when they became empty-nesters. Scott Simpson Design + Build also built the first certified LEED-H Platinum house in Wilmette.
