This was the first LEED gold certified home in Glenview – featuring sophisticated green technologies – while still creating a beautiful and comfortable home tailored to one-level living.
Numerous, future-forward, cost-saving and eco-conscious technologies allowed us to design and build a unique, environmentally sensitive home in Wilmette.
After years in a beautiful, LEED Platinum-certified house we built for them in Glencoe our second build with this family was focused on finding a more private, larger lot that could allow them to spread out a bit.
Natural elements and reclaimed materials are the centerpiece of this Northbrook new construction’s thoughtful design and unique details as well as the first village-approved rain garden in Northbrook, which helps the whole neighborhood.

There are lots of ways to design and build in an eco-friendly way that make a huge impact.
Deconstructing this Kenilworth home piece-by-piece (instead of just bulldozing it) is a labor of love, but very green and renewable behavior.
We created the first village-approved rain garden in Northbrook, IL, which uses vegetation, soils and other elements to manage water conscientiously.
We cut and manually installed 400-pound reclaimed barn beams (from Wisconsin) into a custom design-build home in Northbrook.
Masonry, concrete block and steel can be carefully sorted and sent to different recycling plants, a very green and renewable construction behavior.
