When we were looking for a home in Lincolnwood, we found a house that was particularly attractive, and the finishes were the high level we were looking for. We wanted a elevator in our new home, and as it turned out, that house could not accommodate one. We learned that the house had been built by Ted Lazar of America's Custom Homebuilders. We bought a lot in the Lincolnwood Towers area and contacted Ted Lazar. The project required tearing down the existing house and building an expanded version of the original house, with an elevator, of course. Ted introduced us to his partner, Kathy Andrews, who shares running projects and handles many of the myriad details, including all the numbers. They took on this project with zeal. The existing house was down, the new foundation in, and the house framed and closed-in by two months later, despite starting the job in the November weather. We were out of town during most of the construction, but Ted and Kathy kept us informed with emails and photos. They kept us in the decision process all along as we selected finishes, fixtures, and appliances. When we were back in late Spring we met most of the trades that had worked on the house. Ted has a fine group of talented sub-contractors, most originally from Europe, who do top quality work. Throughout the project, Kathy always had all the numbers ready, available, and she always had them right. She hands on with the many details necessary to wrap up the work and get the required approvals for our eventual occupancy. She and Ted are an awesome team. This was a large project; it was brought in on budget and within a tight schedule. Any smaller project would be a piece of cake for this terrible twosome. I highly recommend them for any size project you have.

Ted & Kathy we're just great to work with. They built a pergola on my back deck and it came out beautiful. They were onsite sometimes twice a day and were extremely responsive. They both have a great eye for detail and brought so much value and experience to the project. Their cost was most competitive and the project was finished on time. They are just enjoyable people to work with. I have already recommend to several of my friends.

Kathy and Ted, the owners of America’s Custom Home Builders, just completed a high quality, beautiful single family home in Lincoln Park Chicago for our family. A friend of ours recommended them and we included them in the selection/bidding process. The communication from the start was superior to all other builders and pricing was also the most competitive. We finished the house on time and on budget, which is somewhat unheard in this market, and we love the finished product. Kathy is very patient and very well organised, and Ted is very knowledgeable and straight forward about everything in construction business. All the subs they employee are great individuals and very accommodating. We had to deal with the bad neighbours, the painful city of Chicago, and other issues which are common for this type of project. I cannot imagine how we would have done it with anyone else. Kathy and Ted were always patient and found a solution. In addition, the suppliers they select are superior and punctual. I would recommend ACHB to anyone looking to build or renovate in the city or the suburbs.
