Tools Every Homeowner Should Have

We build homes. We know tools. Here’s a rundown on the tools every homeowner should have.

ESSENTIALS

These are the real bread and butter of any toolkit.

Hammers for hammering. Screwdrivers for driving screws. Utility knives for… utility knifing? Add in the pliers, the wrenches, the level, and the measuring tape, and your workbench will be operational faster than Tim “The Tool Man” Taylor can grunt.

And what good is a hammer without a nail, or a screwdriver without a screw? Remember to keep a variety of hardware on hand in case you need to do some fixin’ in a pinch.

Want to turn it up a notch? Here are some slightly less essential tools to keep at home.


Power tools aren’t a necessity, but we love our cordless drill more than we love our family sometimes (just kidding, mom), and we’d be remiss not to give it a proper shout out.

And if you’re wanting to cut things, as some people do, a circular saw is preferable, but a hacksaw will go a long way for under $20.

PERIPHERALS

Now these aren’t tools, per se, but they’re just as important, and deserve a loving home on your workbench.

Gloves and protective glasses might be the most important of this category, as you shouldn’t be using a lot of the aforementioned tools without them.


You also need to think about things like extension cords, step ladders, and everything else you need to get a DIY project done safely and correctly.

And, of course, duct tape and WD40.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
