How to Start Planning Your Build

By Jennifer Durand, New Home Consultant

If you want to get into a new home, here are the first steps you should start taking today.


There are the obvious things to figure out, like budget and timeline, and then there are the things that aren’t so obvious. Are you going to need temporary housing while your home is being built? If you have kids, do you know the school district residency requirements where you’re building? By taking time at the start of the building process to think ahead, you’ll save yourself from some stressful moments down the road.


Now’s the time to start asking yourself some questions. Remember, it’s just the beginning, so decisions are far from final, but it’s good to start thinking about what you need and want in your new home.
The first step is to decide on a location. Is there a certain community or neighborhood you’re looking at? Do you want to be out in the country or closer to town? What sort of amenities do you want or need close by? With Bielinski, you can build on your own lot, so don’t feel confined to a single area. And if you don’t want to find your own land, there are Bielinski Neighborhoods all over Southeastern Wisconsin for you to choose from.
Next, you should find the right floor plan for you. What features in a new home are most important to you? How do you want your new home to improve your life? What style of home works best for your family and your lifestyle? Once you’ve answered these questions, it becomes a lot easier to find your plan.
Having trouble answering some of these questions? Visit our model homes, speak with a new home consultant like me, and keep an open mind.

  • 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.
