Our Most Popular Floor Plan

By Paul Bielinski, CEO & VP

Our most popular floor plan has gone by many different names over the years: The Shorewood, The Sagamore, The Clemont, and now, The Sophia. There have been improvements made and features added along the way, but it’s always been the same fundamental layout. Here’s why The Sophia is such a hit, how it has influenced our building practices, and a glimpse into what’s next.



The open concept is what really makes The Sophia so popular. You often hear people saying that open-concept homes are all the same. To that, I say, “Au contraire, mon frère.”
The Sophia features a three-room open-concept floor plan including the great room, dining room, and kitchen, with a big emphasis on the kitchen. The great room and living room are set side-by-side with no dividing walls. The kitchen is open to both of these rooms as well, with a casual snack bar and plenty of storage space. All of this makes The Sophia flexible and functional for the modern family.



The popularity of The Sophia has inspired changes to other homes and impacted our floor plan design. We’ve taken many elements of The Sophia and integrated them into existing plans and used them in new ones.
Many elements in other floor plans are similar to The Sophia floor plan, especially in the kitchen. We’re now creating larger kitchen islands with interesting seating configurations. We’ve also come to understand that additional counter space and kitchen cabinetry are a big priority for folks building homes.


Several of our newer floor plans are gaining popularity. One of the main reasons is because of their home offices and dedicated workspaces. With so many people working and schooling from home nowadays, a home workspace has become almost a necessity. As the need for these new spaces grows and lifestyles become more casual, floor plans that feature fewer formal spaces, like dining rooms, and more workspaces are becoming more popular.

  • 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.
    Heidi 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.
    Barb King
  • We have just purchased our third Bielinski Home in the last 22 years, a Bielinski condo. We have found that Bielinski Homes builds quality homes for fair prices. The craftsmanship of construction and finishing is exceptional, plus they make the buying and building process easy with great customer experience. We would strongly recommend a Bielinski Home.
    Jerald and Jeanne Filut
  • We absolutely loved working with Bielinski Homes — the kindness and knowledge they shared sold us on wanting to move to our new neighborhood. We were worried about moving. But we had no doubts in our minds after speaking with our New Home Consultant about the community and the neighbors. We couldn’t be happier with our new home and new neighborhood.
