Custom Build

Home Design Process

We Make It Easy.

For more than 60 years, Phillippe Builders has helped our friends and neighbors in Illinois and Northwest Indiana design and build the homes of their dreams.


Talk To A Home Consultant

Our Home Consultants are experts at helping customers explore ideas, find inspiration, and refine the concept of their new home plans. Ask one of our Home Consultants to show you just how easy owning a custom home can be. Tour models, discuss your goals and priorities, and discover the options that work best for your budget.


Schedule a Design Session

There’s no experience quite like designing your own custom home. It’s the opportunity to create the perfect living space and then watch as expert builders bring it to life right before your eyes.

Your Home Consultant will assemble a dedicated team for you to consult during your design sessions. These specialists will help you to imagine the design possibilities and navigate every option and practical detail.

What will I do during my design sessions?
  • Explore and refine your design style.
  • Coordinate palettes of colors, textures, and materials.
  • Choose optional floor plans and room layouts.
  • Create interior spaces with specific moods and charm.
  • Identify signature features that create unique character.
  • Find specialty design elements to accent your home.
  • Make informed and creative construction choices.
  • Optimize and manage your construction budget.
  • Plan an efficient construction schedule and watch it unfold.
  • Discover the joy of creating your own custom home!
