Pickerill Estate House


Pickerill-Pigott Forest Preserve


Yorkville, Illinois


In 2019, Kluber conducted a study for the Kendall County Forest Preserve regarding the feasibility of turning the Pickerill Estate House located within the Pickerill-Pigott Forest Preserve into a multi-purpose, publicly accessible facility that could be use for educational purposes and as a rental.

This design of this conversion contemplates the following elements:

  • Renovating the first-floor to be ADA accessible
  • Installing a septic field
  • Asbestos abatement
  • Updating bathrooms and lighting
  • The creation of an airy outdoor space for use or rent
  • Future installation of solar panels on the overhang’s roof.

After the feasibility study was complete, Kluber was retained by the Forest Preserve to assist in pursuing a grant to implement these changes.
