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. We have enjoyed working on many home building projects, including a few of our favorite dream homes in Wilmette:

Just 14 miles north of downtown Chicago, Wilmette is a family-focused community that, in 2020, was ranked #1 by as the best place to raise a family in Cook County based on a variety of factors including public schools grade, percentage of residents with a bachelor’s degree or higher, crime & safety grade, family amenities, walkability grade, percentage of households with children, and access to parks and other recreational activities.
