While Middlefork's homes are luxurious, they are built for living first. They have a timeless elegance that is understated, with places for families, fun, and friendship.

Focused on building relationships as well as residences, we pride ourselves on working collaboratively with all of our clients. We keep the process transparent from budget to schedule, led by our team with a combined forty years of experience.

Middlefork Luxury Homes was established in 2008, born out of the lessons and trends founder Andy Bowyer discovered during the 2008 market crash. While developers all across the nation were going out of business due to market conditions and poor business practices, Andy saw an opportunity to not only serve the still-moving luxury home market, but reimagine what it meant to build custom homes. He began researching local homeowner needs, market trends, and best practices in the Chicago area with the goal of answering one foundational question:
What do homeowners actually want?

That one guiding question is at the heart of every new project we take on, custom-tailoring every inch of our clients’ homes to fit their families’ individual needs, personality, and style. At Middlefork, we build homes that create a lifetime of memories.

We are proud members of the Home Builders Association of Greater ChicagoThe National Association of Home Builders, and the American Institute of Architects.
