Homes That Focus on Quality of Life

Eco House Design for Everyone

Reimagine quality of life for a more comfortable, sustainable future where you live. BrightLeaf Homes is a unique collaboration of Chicago-area builders that leverage their strengths in planning and management processes, trade partner relationships, and vast knowledge of the construction industry to offer you a better process and exceptional home.

Energy efficiency is more than how your house runs; it’s how your house is built. We’ve given green consideration to every part and process of our homes’ construction. As Chicago-area builders, we have a vision for our city and its neighborhoods. We want homes built better for families, with intention and pride. Our trade partners work within a hyper-local radius. We are local builders who build every home with a focus on energy efficiency, quality, and affordability.


Buying a Home

A BrightLeaf home is designed and engineered with material, space, and manpower-efficiency in mind from the very start. Buying an eco-friendly home in Chicago means a better, more innovative house built to last for many, many years to come.
