A Well-Built Wall

By Steve Bielinski, COO

You might think that all walls are built the same, but here at Bielinski Homes, we build it better. Here’s how we go above and beyond to create a sturdier, better-insulated home for you and your family.


It all starts with the framing. Our wall systems are built differently. Building code requires a 2’x4’ exterior wall system.  Every single Bielinski home and condo are built using a stronger 2’x6’ system while maintaining studs at 16” on center. 

Now, this might just seem like random numbers to you, so let me tell you what that means practically. Next big windstorm? Less creaking. Teenager slams a door? Less wobbling. 


Sturdiness isn’t the only thing that a 2’x6’ system brings to the table. The deeper 5.5” wall cavity allows us to use denser and more protective R-21 batt insulation, compared to the standard R-19 batt insulation. A shallower wall cavity and lower-rated insulation might be cheaper upfront, but you’ll pay for it every winter when your heating costs skyrocket. 

R-21 batt insulation isn’t just great for insulating heat but also insulates sound. Don’t get us wrong, you’ll still hear your neighbors mowing the side lawn, it just won’t sound like they’re mowing your great room carpet.


And that’s not all that a Bielinski wall system does to keep you comfortable. Often, air infiltration can happen where your exterior walls meet the subfloor of your house. This can create a draft and lower your heating and cooling system efficiency.

To prevent this from happening, Bielinski Homes caulk that entire area around your home. It seems like a small thing, but trust us, not many builders would even consider it. But we know at the end of the day, craftsmanship matters to our customers in their daily lives.

If you’re looking for a well-built home with well-built walls, well, we’ll build it. Talk to a Bielinski New Home Consultant today.
  • 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.

  • 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.
