Meritus Custom Builders

At Meritus Custom Builders, we are proud to bring our quality, custom homebuilding approach to many of Chicagoland’s most desirable North Shore communities, including Wilmette, Winnetka and Northbrook. 

Building a custom home is a very personal experience, which makes choosing the right partner an important first step. At Meritus, we take an individual, hands-on approach with each client, allowing us to build a relationship that serves your unique needs and ensures a positive homebuilding experience.


Whether you engage us to lead your custom homebuilding process, collaborate with an architect of your choosing, or build an existing home design on a site you already own, we are flexible in how we partner with you based on your individual situation.


Meritus Custom Builders bring our expertise to the table to help you understand what goes into designing and building a home, present options and ideas, and coordinate with the project architect or interior designer to incorporate the features you want most in your new home.


Meritus Custom Builders draws from our own design portfolio as well as our relationships with top architects, interior designers, trades and suppliers to recommend and execute beautiful custom elements with the highest quality workmanship.

Financial Strength

Our company has the financial backing to bring your project to fruition and offer you financing options for the construction process.
