Enjoy a video testimonial of the creativity and quality of a custom home designed & built by CL Design-Build, Inc. in far western suburbs of Chicago, IL.
"We enjoyed working with CL Design Build to build our 100% custom dream home. Starting with a blank piece of paper, we were able to build our home from bottom to top using our own ideas and concepts. We are really enjoying our home today."

"While Bob and I have worked with CL Design Build, the experience has been positive, professional, and one we would pursue again. Our dream home was creatively designed balancing practicality and cost. Cheryl’s attention to detail will make our home a focal point of the neighborhood. Thanks to all at CL Design Build!"

"The uniqueness of CL Design-Build is in the “team” of Cheryl and Brad. They are not just a home-builder, they handle the project from conception to closing. Cheryl met with us before we even had the ideas for our new home. She came to the existing house and asked questions like “How do you live? What do you like and dislike about the current house? Where do you see yourself in five years?” She was not only interested in the design, she wanted to know the budget and our “wish list”.
When it came to the plans she made sure every square inch of space was used efficiently. She suggested window seats, built in bookcases and bonus attic space. Cheryl also recommended the lookout basement and putting windows in the attic. She made sure our money was going as far as possible. Her construction knowledge and experience ensured that our home was designed and built with quality and that it was structurally sound.
Cheryl also added the unique touches that make the house so different. Her “theme” for our French Country home was an arch, which she continued through beams, windows, doorways, fireplace surrounds and bathtub platform. She acted as a decorator as well in our selection of stone, brick and textured surfaces. Her taste is impeccable.
Brad was the project manager for our home. He was there every day and took care of our home as if it was his home. He managed the trades, kept us posted on the progress and even did some of the work himself. He was in constant communication with us to ensure everything went as expected.
Brad was also there to supervise all deliveries and returns. If an incorrect window arrived, he quickly resolved the situation to keep us on track and he personally reviewed the billing to ensure that there was a credit for that incorrect item. The quality of materials and craftsmanship is second to none.
That teamwork between Brad and Cheryl ensured that we received the best that is available. There is a trust and bond between CL Design-Build and their clients that gave us peace of mind. The numerous compliments that we receive on our beautiful home are tremendous! We plan to have them design and build our retirement home."

"We just want you to know how impressed we are with the workers on our house. We go and check the progress almost everyday and have always seen a clean worksite. We went through some other homes under construction yesterday and were amazed at how messy they were. We never expected the work site to be so clean, but are really impressed with the care your workers take with our house. They don't leave scraps or waste anywhere. And often the space has been organized and swept. It is really nice."
"We absolutely couldn't be more sincere when we say thanks for the care that goes into building our dream home. We certainly have seen the other side of it. I'm not sure there is another lot or home going up as clean and organized as ours. Me being the anal one with that kind of stuff couldn't more happier. More and more I (we) know we picked the right builder for home.
When we started looking for someone to build our dream home it was very confusing. As we searched we always left feeling, were they listening to us, do they care or do they just want our business (so to speak). When I left our first meeting with Cheryl I knew that she would listen and care. Don't know why I just did. When I met the whole team I knew it would work and that we choose the right builders.
Cheryl, your fine details in our home are absolutely wonderful. If you remember I did not want the family room ceiling you suggested for that 'extra touch' however; it is now my favorite thing in the entire house, with the pillars running second. The cedar siding different sizes you suggested looks absolutely beautiful. Again your special touches to our home will always be there and remind us of how caring you were about "us". Thank you.
Cari, the way you are on top of things is amazing. If we e-mail you with a question, you almost immediately answer even if it’s just to say you'll find out. You are awesome. Thank you.
Cheryl the way you nailed the outside look of our home was great. It was so us. When Cheryl showed it to us I knew that was it. Thank you so much. People who have seen the outside of our home love the shape of it, including the roofs....Thanks again.
Brad, you are not only one of the friendliest, easiest people to work with that I know, but you are so sincere. You are doing an awesome job keeping the guys working on our home. I feel very comfortable knowing your right there. Not only have you guys showed your love for what you do but you care for people while doing it which is awesome."
