Guide To The Home Building Process

As a custom home builder in the Coulee Region area for over 30 years, we’ve learned it can be confusing to build a home.

That’s why we created this page — to serve as a guide to the process.

First is finding a house plan, you could go to plans on line and run a search. But if you’d rather not do website research, just give us a call at 608-786-2535 and we’ll discuss your needs, wants and must have’s and come up with a plan that is just right for you.

Once you have agreed on a plan and budget you need to get your financing in place and a lot purchased if you have not already done so. After your those are in place the fun begins!  You will watch it unfold day by day as the house becomes your home.  Here is a very basic shell of what happens.
