Glen Ellyn is one of our favorite cities in the Chicagoland area.  Both the founders of 1 Builders have personally lived here and have fond memories.  The downtown area features superb dining options, great little shops, and a train station which make it a highly desirable area to live and work.  The Illinois Prairie Path goes right through the downtown area which have great walking and biking paths.  The schools are outstanding, the village is conveniently located, and the homes are beautiful which make it one of the most desirable communities in the Chicagoland area.   

To learn more about this area, please visit the Village of Glen Ellyn website here.

We recently completed a beautiful new home build in Wheaton.   We encourage you to check out the customer video and project review too.

The picture on the top of this page features a Kitchen Remodel for one of your Glen Ellyn neighbors in Wheaton. This kitchen was originally “L” shaped with ceiling cabinets to the dining room, so it made the kitchen feel very closed in.  To open up the space, we removed the cabinets above that made the L shape and made a breakfast bar.  We installed new cabinetry, a mosaic backsplash, and installed a crown molding all the way to the ceiling for a custom look.  And the picture immediately above this section shows a basement finishing and remodeling project for this same Glen Ellyn neighbor in Wheaton.  We removed the dark wood paneling and installed drywall.  We also removed the linoleum tiles and installed carpeting and recessed lighting.

In the pictures that follow, you will notice two kitchens that look very similar.  The first picture was a condo in Glen Ellyn where they wanted all new cabinetry, countertops, and a tile backsplash.  The photo below that shows another kitchen that looks very similar and that is because a neighbor wanted their kitchen to look like the kitchen remodel we did for the neighbor.  They did not have the budget for new cabinetry, so the owner wanted us to paint the oak cabinetry.  We installed the same tile backsplash, countertops, and appliances that we did on the other unit.  The neighbor had a slightly different layout with a large island but they both came out really great.

In this next picture you will find some exterior work we did for the Glen Ellyn neighbors in Wheaton.  Here we tuckpointed the brick, installed new windows, added gutters and facia, and redid the roof.  The red mulch on the red brick really made the exterior of the home look stunning.
