Making of a Homemade Floor Plan (PT. 5)

By Paul Bielinski, CEO

Much like our homemade floor plans, every single Bielinski Neighborhood is planned and named right here in our offices. But the naming process is a little different with our neighborhoods than our homes. Here’s how we do it.


THE INSPIRATION

It’d be easy to make up whatever name we wanted, but the wrong name would always feel off to us and probably to the residents as well. We believe it’s important to keep the name of the neighborhood rooted in the history and personality of the area.
 
When naming a new Bielinski Neighborhood, our biggest areas of inspiration are usually the local geography and ecology. Many of our neighborhood names are feature native plant species, geographic landmarks, or defining terrain features. Sometimes the land was previously owned by a well-known family or the neighborhood has an existing street running through it. In those cases, we try to incorporate those aspects with the new name.
 

THE PROCESS

Naming a neighborhood, like naming a floor plan, isn’t always a linear process. There’s no flow chart or rule book to follow. It’s a casual and organic process that happens over time. Sometimes an upcoming neighborhood will be renamed two or three times before we settle on its final name.
 
Keeping the process flexible allows for creativity and also keeps us from forcing a “just okay” name onto a neighborhood where our residents might be spending the rest of their lives.
 
A neighborhood’s name might seem shallow or unimportant, but the wrong name can make the most wonderful neighborhood unappealing to live in. It’s the same philosophy that we’ve always had. We spend time making every aspect of home building right for the customers, even the neighborhood names. And, yes, we know the perfect neighborhood name won’t necessarily be the main selling point on a Bielinski home, but it makes the customer experience better, so we’re going to take it seriously.

  • When we rightsized from our home of 43 years to a Bielinski Condo in Bay Pointe, our New Home Consultant answered all of our questions and communicated with us the entire way. We’re fully enjoying our beautiful new home and the condo community.

    Deborah and Brian Blackney
  • We chose Bielinski because they are a family-owned business and have been building in the Pewaukee area for a long time. The Clemont floor plan is just perfect for all of our family events and Packer parties.

  • Once I got settled in, I knew I was exactly where I belong. Without Bielinski’s knowledge and communication, I would still be questioning whether I should build at all. Thanks to the entire team that made this all possible.
