Building a custome home in Highland Park

Asked by CDNBlue, Chicago, IL Sat Oct 4, 2008

We want to build a contempory custom green home in Highland Park near the lake. Can anyone recommend a builder that is excellent at his/her craft and who understands how to work with sophisticated buyers that expect excellence and service. We're looking to spend about $200.00 psf excluding the land.

Here is a builder that got their start in contemporary homes in the 70's There are many examples of their "nordic" style home throughout the western burbs including my own community. They have since expanded into doing traditional homes. They have always been a leader in engergy efficiency with their 2x6 insulated exterior walls and are also a green builder.

Here is a link to their webpage & please tell them the MortgageAdvisor referred you.

We have built many homes and subdivisions in Highland Park. My name is Michael Berke and I am President of Berke Homes. Please go to our website at http://www.berkehomes.net. Also, I am a LEED Accredited Professional, which is the highest certification you can receive for Green Building. I would enjoy hearing about your plans.

Here is a builder who not only builds luxury homes, but also builds Green Homes. These can be true zero energy homes (complete with solar shingles) or just "Green" homes. I've attached their website below, but if you want to explore a meeting with them, please let me know. My phone and e-mail are 847-557-1622 or mstodola@ksgmac.com. I hope this is helpful.
