If you are looking for new construction, LakeWood homes are great! We live in a Jefferson model in LakeWood Ridge, Bolingbrook, IL. The homes are huge and open and the community is very nice. The company itself is great. They are readily available if you have any issues and try to fix everything right away. They've won the J.D. Power and Assosicates award many times (I think 4 ina row) as the best builder. You can search the JD Power and associates Web site and see how Lakewood compares to all of the other builders. We love our house!
