Avondale Custom Homes


custom new home construction


At the heart of Avondale Custom Homes is new construction. In 1992, owner, Maurice McNally, realized there was a need for detail-oriented custom homes and thus Avondale was launched to fill this void. From there the hand crafted quality niche was born and continues to be a constant through each new home. Avondale incorporates its Old World Craftsmanship and charm with New and Updated designs and amenities.

Avondale Custom Homes is truly a custom home builder, working with clients on each detail to bring to life a comprehensive story of the owners. By forming a relationship with clients, Avondale is able to offer unique ideas that make the house a home from the custom designed living spaces all the way to the handcrafted cabinetry and millwork. Distinctive elements such as wine cellars, home theaters, and in-laws quarters are customized to fit the needs of the client and further the enjoyment of the home. Custom woodworking and trim are essential components to all Avondale projects. Kitchens adorned with impeccable cabinetry, living rooms with beautiful built-ins, and dining rooms with rustic ceiling beams are distinguishing marks of an Avondale home.

In addition to new construction on vacant land, Avondale provides assistance when tearing down an existing structure and building a custom home. The ability to capitalize on the current lot’s offerings is essential to the firm. It is important to work with existing trees, nature patterns, and lot lines to carefully craft a new home that meshes with the surrounding neighborhood while also standing on its own. Avondale Custom Homes is happy to handpick a comprehensive team of professionals including an architect and interior designer, or work with the client’s chosen team.


Maybe you don’t want to leave the home you love or take on a large remodeling project.

Custom Cabinetry and millwork can transform your home while using the existing layout.

Avondale’s “we do it all” service includes a single source for design, materials and installation to bring you a one of a kind look. We can create whatever you desire, built in studies, sophisticated media centers, entertaining bars and wine cellars. Imagine your favorite rooms wrapped in simple or intricate crown moldings or paneling. Elevate your family room with a new ceiling detail or a new fireplace mantel and bookcases. We can help you create a gourmet kitchen, functional laundry or mud room, or indulgent master suite.

Whether you prefer clean lines, a rich classic look, or an elaborate ornamental style, cabinetry and millwork can add an extra flourish to any room or entrance foyer in your home.

Avondale Custom Homes is pleased to offer a variety of residential additions. Whether adding an entire second story or simply extending the current kitchen and living room, Avondale can seamlessly blend the original architecture of the home while showcasing the beautiful addition. These spaces will be able to accommodate a growing family, provide a residence for aging in-laws, or purely maximize current living space.

The benefits of an addition are multiple in that they not only allow the family to continue residing in their familiar surroundings, rather than purchase a new home, but also potentially increase the sales revenue of the home at the time of disposition. Additions also allow for complete customization, whether it be the triple layer crown molding added to the project or the detailed door casing leading to the addition. Avondale’s additions uphold the remarkable craftsmanship and vast design found in the company’s new home construction.

By providing a comprehensive plan for the addition, Avondale Custom Homes can effectively manage all stages of the project while interfering with their client’s daily life as little as possible. Furthermore, Avondale’s knowledge of the administrative tasks associated with each city’s construction permits, eases the process and keeps projects on time and in budget.

Whether simply looking for a builder to complete an addition, or starting at square one with the need for an architect, Avondale Custom Homes can work within their client’s scope of work and provide an all-inclusive plan.


Most often the kitchen is the first area to be remodeled in a home. Whether it be due to the need for more space or merely to enhance the entire look of the house, the kitchen can be a defining area of the home. Many times it is where guests gather and families spend a majority of their time. Remodeling this area goes beyond adding the latest kitchen appliances and choosing between marble or granite countertops. Custom cabinetry, unique slate floors, ceilings adorned with painted tin, and creative door casings take the kitchen to the next level and set a tone for the remainder of the home.

Bathrooms are also highly sought after remodeling projects. Avondale provides custom vanities that enhance the current space and blend cohesively with elegant sinks and fixtures. Heated floors, double-insulated soaking tubs, and a variety of lighting options make this space warm and inviting for family members and house guests alike.

Basement completions and remodels allow for the most variety in construction as Avondale views this space as extension of the main living area. One of a kind home theaters, bars, game rooms, and exercise spaces are crafted with as much detail as the main dining room.

In addition to the benefit of living in a beautiful new space, remodeling can increase return on investment at the time of disposition. Kitchens and bathrooms are the top two items buyers look at when purchasing a home. Furthermore, basements add to the livable square footage of the home.


Avondale incorporates their old world craftsmanship with the outdoors, as they offer clients unique outdoor living areas. These spaces are perfect for entertaining and provide year round comfort despite traditional Midwest weather.

The most common thread running thru outdoor living spaces is the ability to entertain, cook, and enjoy the company of family and friends. Therefore Avondale Custom Homes works with clients to provide a fully functional space that eliminates trips to and from the home. Elements such as bathrooms, refrigerators, ovens, and televisions are brought outdoors. Kitchens mirror those inside the home by including countertops, cabinets, pizza ovens, freezer drawers, and sinks. Outdoor bars include wine coolers, keg taps, ice makers, blenders, and plenty of storage.

Traditional outdoor amenities such as pools, gazebos, built-in furniture, fireplaces, and spas can all be taken to the next level. By adding to these current elements, Avondale Custom Homes provides a space with greater use that maximizes the current livable space. Families will be able to spend more time outside, rather than in separate areas of the house. Party hosts will be able to mingle with guests instead of restocking the cooler.

Accents including lighting, planters, water gardens, and flowers are not forgotten. These decorative amenities can immensely add to the warm and inviting atmosphere of an outdoor living area. Relationships with area landscapers provide Avondale’s clients with unique ideas and easy maintenance plans.

Whether remodeling the home’s current outdoor plan or starting from the beginning, Avondale’s close attention to detail and knowledge of materials and fixtures greatly add to the project. By viewing the outdoor living space as an extension to the home, Avondale carefully assesses traffic patterns, weather elements, and the overall needs of the client to carefully craft a custom space that not only fits in the yard, but also the budget.


Offices, Medical, and Professional Buildings

Stemming from the renowned Avondale Custom Homes comes McNally Construction Management, distinguished commercial construction with uncompromised excellence.

McNally Construction Management has had the opportunity to build out a number of professional office spaces including the Sterling Bank of St Charles. Our combination of custom trim and impeccable cabinetry have the ability to transform an average office space into an impressive and functional work space. We have worked with business owners, landlords, developers, and general contractors to design and build conference rooms, private offices, kitchen facilities, reception areas, and libraries.

From a custom built wet bar in the director’s office to a coffered ceiling in the conference room, McNally Construction Management leaves no detail left untouched. Employees will feel at home during the work day and clients will be impressed at every corner, starting at the intricately built reception desk.

McNally Construction Management has the ability to act as a provider of trim and cabinetry or as the general contractor on a commercial project. As the later, our firm ensures the build out to be completed on time and in budget. Furthermore, we understand the need to continue business as usual when our construction team is on site. Therefore, we keep the work space clean, functional and free of loud noise during peak business hours.

In addition to traditional office space, our firm has the capability to create custom medical offices. We work with the doctors and practice managers to design a functioning office space, complete with nurse’s stations, exam rooms, labs, and private doctor’s offices. Our design capabilities allow us to hide necessary medical equipment behind cabinetry and to make the waiting room a welcome work of art with crown molding. These custom services transition the office into a calming environment, where patients can relax and recover.
