The Building Process

We get it. Sometimes building a home feels like walking up to a cliff and jumping off. So let’s make sure you’re wearing a parachute.

1. OVER-PLAN

The first and most important step to building your new home starts before even signing a contract: planning.
What are your goals? What are your inspirations? What’s your budget?
This is one of the biggest investments you’ll ever make, so be absolutely sure you’re prepared. Reach out to local building experts. Don’t be afraid to ask questions. Have a Plan A, a Plan B and a Plan C (go all the way to Plan Z if it helps).
 

2. FIND A TEAM YOU TRUST

Even with an unshakeable idea of what you want in mind, sometimes it helps to let the experts do what they do best. Working with a team you have faith in and listening to their advice will make your dream home that much easier to finish. Plus, with a builder you trust, the process becomes much easier for you and your family.
 
Here are some questions you can ask to make sure you find the right building partner:
 
Are they local?
Builders with strong community ties often have even stronger connections with area contractors and material suppliers. Beautiful homes are built on great relationships.
What’s their history?
The longer they’ve been around the better. Home building is a line of work where experience is king. You want a team who has seen it all, done it all, built it all.
Ask around.
The internet is your friend. It’s easier than ever to search out testimonials on social media, so take advantage! We know that building a new home is extremely personal, and it feels like no one else can understand, but millions (Billions? Trillions?) of people have gone through it, too. Don’t put all your faith into one Facebook comment, but don’t turn a blind eye to the wisdom of others.

3. START BUILDING

The moment you’ve been waiting for! With all the planning you’ve done and with a team you can trust, there’s no stopping you. But even the most airtight project can come upon a couple bumps in the road. It’s important to stay informed and make sure you’re involved in every decision that comes up. A good builder will gladly work with you every single step of the way.

  • 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.
    John and Jean Jones
  • I’ve been so impressed and completely satisfied with the entire Bielinski building experience. From the initial sale and throughout the construction process I have appreciated Bielinski’s professionalism, craftsmanship, and follow-through.
    Heide Hamilton
  • We are extremely happy with our new Bielinski Condo. It’s well-built and full of all the features we wanted in our home.
    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.
    Bob and Darla Landgren
  • We couldn’t be happier with our new home! The entire process was fantastic. Everyone was so responsive and quick to help. Bielinski’s knowledge of the industry was invaluable. We recommend Bielinski to anyone looking for their next home.
    Mike and Kristin Smith
  • We had a really good experience with Bielinski from start to finish. Everyone was responsive and reliable. Now we are enjoying life in our new home.
    Peter Holzwart and Therese Gaynor-Holzwart
  • 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.
