Byron Forest Preserve Staff


Prairie Forge group was brought on this residential project as a architectural consultant and cost estimator. This study consisted of working with the Byron Forest Preserve Staff to suggest multiple ways of adding a new garage and exterior updates to an existing house on their property. Three Schemes were presented to the Forest Preserve. These schemes showed the garage detached from the house, attached with a mud room, and attached by decks. All Three Schemes included cost estimations at various price points. Eventually a blend of Scheme 1 and Scheme 2 was chosen due to budget constraints.
