How We Build Energy Efficient Homes

The building process is long and complex, and our job is to make it easy for you. Here is a basic overview of some of the different structural phases of constructing your new smart home.


During excavation, we get your lot ready for home building by clearing out earth, rock, vegetation, and any other obstacles that could get in our way. You’ll see excavation crews using heavy machinery and other tools to make sure your lot is ready for construction.


After the lot is ready, we move on to the foundation. A strong foundation is the key to a home that will last a lifetime. That’s why Bielinski uses a minimum of 10% recycled, poured concrete with both horizontal and vertical rebar. We also incorporate a formed drain tile system to give you the long-term peace of mind that water won’t cause any future basement problems.


This is the phase when your home starts looking like a home. Rough carpenters are responsible for creating the frame, a wooden support system that makes up the floors, walls, and ceilings of your new home. We use engineered lumber that utilizes 50% less wood fiber than traditional lumber, making it stronger and more sustainable.


After the frame is finished, the roof is built. Our roofs come in a variety of styles. They’re covered with dimensional asphalt shingles, painted metal, and/or copper accents.


In this phase, we focus on the outside of your home. Bielinski uses vinyl or cement board siding. Vinyl is lightweight and easy to install, plus it is water repellent and won’t rust, dent, rot, or chip. Cement board is incredibly durable, fire-resistant, insect-resistant, and gives the appearance of natural siding material with less maintenance. Both options help seal your house from the outside elements, making it a more energy-efficient home in Wisconsin for the hot summers and cold winters.
