Builder of Dream Homes

Timberstone Design & Development is a family-owned and operated company that builds new homes in the Suburbs of Chicago, IL (Western Springs, Hinsdale, Clarendon-Hills, La Grange, Countryside, and Downtown Chicago).

Jim McDonnell formed Timberstone Design & Development after years of working for his Father, Uncle, and Grandfather at McDonnell Development. Timberstone's architecture affiliate is IJM Group, owned by Jim's brother Ian. The two, along with their Father, strive to surpass your expectations in every aspect of your new home.

With quality school districts and multiple lines of transportation into Chicago, the Western Suburbs has become an area of focus. Timberstone's devotion to making the building process easy and effortless for the homeowner has created demand and opportunity for Timberstone's services all over Chicagoland. A quality built home with a personal touch is what Timberstone strives to achieve. It is important for us to be personally involved in every aspect of your dream home. From the design phase through your move in, Timberstone will be with you every step of the way. The architecture and building phases coincide to ensure your desires are met and changes you request are implemented. By working with you during each stage of the building process, we are able to create a luxury home which reflects your family's needs.
