At Scott Simpson Design + Build, we have more than 30 years of experience creating new construction custom homes as well as significant green homes, historic preservation, additions and luxury remodels in and around the North Shore. Our unified team of North Shore architects and builders specialize in delivering cohesive additions that bring exciting new space to your home.

We specialize in designing plans for larger, more modern kitchens, extending  primary suites and baths; creating new garage space; adding more dedicated office and study spaces; broadening outdoor entertainment areas – and adding more natural light throughout the home with each effort. We have even had several clients build a second time with us as they welcome more children or start empty-nesting!


After years of bringing our devoted craftsmanship to North Shore additions and remodels, we believe we have the right combination of experience, references, and resources to deliver on the vision for the next version of your home. We will usher you through the process – from concepting to designing to permitting to budgeting and constructing – all covered by our 3-year warranty.

Our team works with long-standing subcontractors, suppliers, and craftspeople to maximize spending power, minimize obstacles, and pay attention to detail with each step of the process. Opting for a united design-build service is a smart approach as it affords access to licensed architects, builders, and a dedicated project management team simultaneously. This allows your family to enjoy the luxury of a collaborative, informed, and inspiring process all along the way.

We would be happy to take you on a tour through some of our custom additions and remodeling projects in Winnetka and Hubbard Woods, Chicago, Lake Forest, Glencoe, Glenview, Highland Park, Kenilworth, Wilmette and Northbrook.

Please contact us and we’ll get something on the schedule.
