When DR Horton/Cambridge is building new homes, the Building Department performs 15 inspections on each house to insure the quality of the structure is consistent with Village Adopted standards.

Home Improvements & Additions


If you are considering any additions or improvements to your home, you must first check with the Village at 847-464-5533, ext 19 regarding necessary building permits. Building permits are required before most interior or exterior improvements are made. This includes roofs, fences, decks, patios, pools, and other accessory structures.
