KKrueger Custom Homes builds 5-7 unique, one-of-a-kind custom homes in Washington County, Waukesha County, Sheboygan County, and the surrounding areas each year.  Jeff Krueger of West Bend started the company in 1991.  Back then, Jeff Krueger worked for a local builder as their residential designer and started Krueger Custom Homes so he could build homes at the request of family and friends.  In 1995, the demand for Jeff to build homes dramatically increased and he made the decision to make Krueger Custom Homes his full-time career.  Since then, Krueger Custom Homes has made a name for itself as one of the area's elite builders for custom, high quality homes.   We build all sizes and architectural styles of homes.  Jeff also has extensive knowledge in lake property building.

Building a new home is a big decision.  Often times you have many questions but do not know where to begin.  We have tried to answer some of the common questions we receive:

     Q.  What sets Krueger Custom Homes apart from the other builders in the area?

     A.  The main characteristic that sets us apart from many of the other builders in the area is Jeff's design capability.  Jeff has a degree in residential design and it really shows!  His designs are unique, creative, and always have outstanding curb appeal.  Area residents always say they can tell it is a "Krueger" before they even see the job sign posted.  Another feature that sets us apart is our quality.  Only high quality materials and subcontractors that have extensive knowledge and superior craftsmanship work on our homes.  Many of our subcontractors have been working with us since 1991.  They understand quality is the cornerstone and no shortcuts are ever taken.

     Q.  There are so many builders out there.  How do we choose one?

     A.  What we suggest you do is set up an appointment with the builders you are considering working with and interview all of them.  Your relationship is going to be long-term no matter which builder you choose, so make sure you feel comfortable with the builder!  Communication is crucial when building a new home so you must be able to communicate effectively with each other so there are no surprises along the way!  Also, obtain a list of references and call the homeowners on the list.  Ask them how their building experience was and did they get along with the builder.  Ask if their ideas and inputs along the way were met with enthusiasm.  Did the project go over budget and/or over the projected completion time.  If so, was this something that could have been prevented?  Past experiences on projects are a good indicator of future experiences.  You can also ask to tour projects currently under construction.  Krueger Custom Homes makes it a standard practice of taking prospective clients on a tour of current homes.  Another great resource is the Metropolitan Builder's Association (www.mbaonline.org)  They have many tips and articles on their website in helping you choose a builder.

     Q.  Why should we choose Krueger Custom Homes to build our home?

     A.  We hope you will choose us to build your home because building truly is our passion.  We are a small company by choice.  In building only 8-10 homes a year our customers receive the ultimate in personal attention that is necessary and deserving when building a new home.  We do not have employees.  Jeff does the design work and expedites all our projects.  You are always dealing with the owner of the company, not hired help who don't have much at stake in the outcome of your project.  One other benefit to choosing us is our overhead is low.  We run the business out of our home so we are able to keep costs down and pass these savings onto our customers.  We also feel by working out of our home we are more accessible to our clients.   

     Q.  We like what we see and what we hear about Krueger Custom Homes.  What is our next step?

     A.  Give us a call or email us and let's sit down and discuss your project!  We would love to hear your thoughts and ideas!  Bring along any pictures and/or drawings to show us.  Also, think about what amenities you would like inside your home.  This information gives us a good idea of how you want your new home to look and what your expectations are.  The more information you can give us the better.  Over the next few days Jeff will go over his notes from the meeting and compare these to previous jobs we have done.  Then he can provide you with a "guesstimate" of how much he believes your new home might cost.  This way you do not waste valuable time working with a builder for several months only to find out the home is out of your anticipated budget. 

If you approve this initial "guesstimate" and decide Krueger Custom Homes is your builder, the next step would be the design process.  Jeff would start floor plan sketches and we would have several meeting with you throughout this phase to make sure you get the home you dreamed of.  Once the design is complete, the plan is sent out for bids and an exact cost can be determined to build your home.  This process can take several weeks or months, depending on how fast design decisions can be made.  The bidding process itself generally takes about 3-4 weeks.  Once the bidding is complete, a building contract is put together and the actual construction process can get under way!

     Q.  Does Krueger Custom Homes offer a design service without building our home?

     A.  No.  For two reasons.  First, because we are a small company, time is a critical factor in this decision.  The design process takes several hours and meetings to complete and we do not want to take time away from our building clients.  Second, there is liability that goes with designing a home and if Krueger Custom Homes is not the builder, there is no guarantee the home will be built to the proper structural specifications therefore creating a liability nightmare.

     Q.  How long will it take to build our home?

     A.  This depends on the size of the home and the complexity of the design.  In addition, since we live in Wisconsin, weather is always a factor!  Nevertheless, most of our homes are built within 6-8 months.  However, we are proud to say we have never had a home take longer than the timeframe stated in the contract!

We would like to thank you for visiting our website.  We hope it has been informative and worth your valuable time.  We welcome any feedback you may have and we look forward to hearing from you soon.

Sincerely,

Jeff  Krueger
