The owners bought a five-acre tract of land in rural horse country northwest of Chicago, Illinois to design and build a ‘family compound’, one that would support their family of seven for years to come. It was vital that the residence was of a quality that would ‘last the test of time and that could be handed down, generation after generation’.
