    The individuals arrived over an hour late but seemed very nice throughout that initial meeting, walking around the home and discussing planned projects. The initial verbal assessment was a bit eyebrow-raising - $50,000+/- to eventually replace siding/brick along the front of the house. That was the first alarm bell. The second was that he didn't seem all that interested in the exterior of the home (which was what we clearly said was our initial focus) with the second individual repeatedly asking if we were planning on finishing the basement anytime soon. Once replying that the basement was secondary to correcting some urgent concerns on the exterior they seemed to lose interest. After leaving I exchanged several emails with the company looking to set up a timetable and official estimates for the front steps and exterior work - the gist of the response was that they really weren't interested in the job and I received the distinct impression that they weren't taking me seriously because I was female. Our suspicions were confirmed when my husband contacted the company independently and received a MUCH more timely, professional response. Needless to say we don't recommend this company and wouldn't let them within 10 feet of our home.

    Craig had an uphill battle because many builders have left me feeling as if they didn't understand or they weren't capable.  Craig knows his business and I was quite impressed.  He explained the issues with the windows, doors and more.  He talked about the order things should progress and the solutions I needed.  He is lining me up with a person to draw up the plans for the changes and additions and then we'll tackle the fixes, remodeling and exterior.  

    While I have no numbers from him as of this time, I can tell you that the price for drawing up everything is about 80% less than others.  It is certainly the first time that I feel confident I will have a well built home done right!

    i will consult with him forever and have him do the work if he wants it too.  I'll comment back when the work is done.  Thanks Craig for a great experience.

    Charlie Construction LLC
    Extremely bad!  Mark Uetz is negligent and incompetent in all aspects of home construction.  The building inspector completed a report of non-compliance in addition a structural engineer provided a professional account of damages.
    Listed are areas of structural integrity out of compliance current WI residential build code.
    BASEMENT / GROUND FLOOR AREA
    1. Load bearing columns at stairwell are not supported by structure below. This applies to vertical load bearing elements on both sides of the stairway between upper, main, and lower levels. This condition will compromise the load capacity of these columns.
    2. Main Floor Trusses have no bottom chord bracing installed. This does not comply with truss plans or IRC-R502. Truss plans indicate bottom chord bracing shall be installed at maximum 10? spacing.
    3. Floor supporting headers are installed with inadequate bearing area. This does not comply with IRC-R502.
    4. Bearing wall at exterior garage wall is not in proper location, and is not located below the upper bearing wall. This will compromise the capacity of both bearing walls.
    5. Floor truss at exterior wall adjacent to garage is not properly braced in vertical position ? it is presently out of plumb and has apparently shifted after the original attachment of framing and sheathing.
    6. Floor trusses installed backward (end locations reversed). This will compromise the capacity of the trusses.
    7. Bearing wall was not installed, and trusses are installed backward. Trusses were designed with bearing points which are now unsupported, and this will compromise the truss capacity.
    8. Inadequate truss bracing at Superior Wall locations ? modified framing was attempted to replace the end wall bracing requirement. This was not installed per Superior Wall details or any documented, recognized, and accepted standard. This
    will compromise the overall building integrity.
    9. Sheathing is installed in horizontal direction without nailers at joints. Fastening of sheathing is not able to be installed. This does not comply with IRC-R602.
    10. Load Bearing wall is not supported on foundation similar to the other bearing walls on the project. This does not comply with IRC 403.
    11. Concrete slab is severely delaminated in numerous locations. This slab was placed in cold weather conditions and had salt placed upon it during curing. The poor condition of the concrete is likely the result of this.
    12. Insulation under the slab is not rated for load bearing, and is not adequate to be placed under a load bearing walls.
    MAIN FLOOR AREA
    13. Trusses not supported by any vertical load bearing element. This will compromise the load capacity of the trusses and roof elements they support.
    14. LVL Beam seats not fastened completely ? nailing is omitted from one side at each beam. This does not comply with IRC-R502.
    15. A 3-Ply LVL beam is bearing on discontinuous wall ends with no vertical load bearing element below. This will compromise the load capacity of the beam.
    16. Load bearing LVL beams have inadequate bearing area. This does not comply with IRC-R502.
    17. Trusses are installed backward ? load bearing point is in wrong location as a result.
    18. LVL beam seat is inadequately attached at load bearing end. This will compromise the capacity of the beam seat. This is apparently due to the trusses being installed backward, which results in the vertical element being in the wrong location.
    19. Trusses are installed backward, as evidenced by variation in bearing length at beam end. This will compromise the capacity of these trusses and their supported elements as previously noted.
    20. Upper Floor trusses have no lateral bracing at bottom chord. This does not comply with truss plans or with IRC-R502.
    21. Window header is not extended as indicated on plan. This does not comply with Drawing A3.
    22. LVL Header is installed with inadequate bearing area. This does not comply with IRC-R502.
    23. Wall corner is not constructed properly ? no continuity at framing. This will compromise the lateral load capabilities of the entire wall system.
    24. Braced Wall panels not constructed at corners per plan. This does not comply with Drawing A3 or with IRC-R602.
    25. Great Room wall not constructed as a ?Tall Wall? system. Framing has not been provided to transfer lateral and vertical loads from roof and walls to the foundation, creating an unstable wall system.
    26. Stairway stringer is unsupported at the landing corner. This compromises the capacity of the stair landing.
    27. Load bearing wall was constructed in two parts, creating a hinge point that was not included in the design or on the plans. Wall capacity is greatly compromised by this condition.
    UPPER FLOOR / ROOF AREA
    28. Incomplete roof sheathing leaves an area unsupported.
    29. Wall corners not properly constructed. This compromises the lateral load capacity of the wall system.
    30. Braced Wall panels not installed at corners per plans. This does not comply with Drawing A4, or with IRC-R602.
    31. Roof trusses bearing without vertical elements below, creating an unstable system.
    32. Window header is not extended per plan. This does not comply with Drawing A4.
    33. Bearing wall was modified to accommodate the roof. This brings the integrity of the wall and roof truss framing into question.
    34. No bottom chord bracing has been installed for the roof trusses. This does not comply with the truss plans or with IRC-R502.
    35. Roof trusses include ?piggyback? trusses that are not adequately attached to lower trusses. This does not comply with truss plans and compromises the truss stability and capacity.
    36. Roof trusses in the Great Room bear at the top of a wall assembly that does not include a proper load bearing header or bearing wall system. This compromises both the roof framing and the wall capacity.
    37. Window header is not extended per plan. This does not comply with Drawing A4.
    38.Trusses are installed without hurricane clips. This compromises the wind resistance capacity of the roof.
    39. Sheathing nailing misses the bearing element. This compromises the wind resistance capacity of the roof.
    40. Roof framing is laid flat ? adequate capacity is not provided in that orientation. This compromises the roof capacity.
    41. Trusses are missing the load bearing beam and are thus unsupported. This creates an unstable roof system.
    42. Field framing is unsupported and not fastened to any vertical load bearing element. This creates an unstable roof system.
    43. Large area with no sheathing leaves a section of roof unsupported.
    44. Large space in framing results in sheathing spanning much further than typical ? this is in excess of 4 feet. This compromises the wind load capacity of the wall system and does not comply with IRC-R602.
    45. Header not constructed per plan. This does not comply with Drawing A4.
    46. Wall framing is not connected ? no vertical load bearing is attached, and no lateral system is attached to the end of this wall. This is an unstable framing system.
    47. No ridge beam is provided to attach roof members. This creates an unstable roof system.
    48. Large area of roof sheathing is unsupported.
    49. Trusses are not supported by vertical load bearing of any type. This is an unstable framing system.
    50. Window framing is modified and not per plan.
    51. Window header is not extended per plan. This does not comply with Drawing A4.
    52. Great room roof trusses were modified due to insufficient vertical clearance at the stairwell. The resulting ceiling profile does not comply with Drawing A4-B.
    GARAGE AREA
    53. Exterior sheathing is set in horizontal direction without adequate fastening. This does not comply with IRC-R602.
    54. Corners and braced wall panels are not installed per plan. This does not comply with drawing A3, or with IRC-R602.
    55. Door headers are not extended per plan. This does not comply with Drawing A3.
    56. Door header spanning 18 feet is apparently not properly sized ? presently the header sags vertically and deflects horizontally over ¾?. This horizontal deflection greatly compromises the capacity of the header as well.
    57. Roof trusses sized to carry bonus room floor are supported on the door header. This load may not have been accounted for in header selection.
    58. Large truss reactions do not have a vertical wall element below. This does not comply with IRC-R602.
    59. All wall framing is 2x4, not per plan.
    60. No bottom chord bracing is installed in the trusses. Presently, trusses are warped and deflected in a condition that greatly compromises their vertical load capacity. This does not comply with truss plans or with IRC-R502.
    61. Vertical load bearing columns at door opening are not supported below the main floor. This compromises the vertical load capacity of the upper floor framing system.
    62. Floor header does not have adequate bearing area. This does not comply with IRC-R502.
    63. Floor trusses are not properly braced at bearing end. This does not comply with IRC-R502.
    64. Foundation wall has separated at the corner, indicating movement in the foundation below the wall. There is presently a space of approximately 2? at the top of the foundation wall. This unstable foundation will compromise the load capacity of all vertical bearing elements above, and will lead to significant distress in the supported structure.
    65. Interior wall was backfilled without proper lateral bracing, resulting in significant deflection of the wall.
    GENERAL CONSTRUCTION ISSUES
    66. Two inch foam insulation on the exterior is not compatible with the requirements of the siding installation. This will interfere with proper siding installation.
    67. Mold issues are now present with the exterior insulation and in numerous locations throughout the interior.
    68. Internal bearing walls are not set on proper foundations. They have been placed on sand, non-rated foam insulation, and wood framing. This does not comply with IRC-R403.

    Zehm Inspections
    It's a work still in progress. Have one more bathroom to do &  cosmetic work in living room & bedrooms but the most difficult & time consuming work is done.
     Per my request & needs, the whole project is taking longer than anticipated; the cooperation I've experienced is great.   I can't speak highly enough for Mike & his subcontractors; his prime concern is being sure you've got the end result that you're aiming for & are happy with the work his subs are doing.. .
    Fred Coulter was fantastic about demolition, insulation, framing, tile work getting cabinets up & the island.; I don't think there's anything Fred can't do!   Mike Buffy with Sunset Electric, Derek Lewis with Lewis Heating & Air,  Mark, doing drywall & ceilings.  Mark Brown with plumbing.  I've just had a terrific experience with Mike & his people!  Money spent through Zehm Building Concepts is money well spent! 
    These people are professionals, listen to them!  They'll be listening to what you want to accomplish & remember it's a team effort.  If you get Mike for a contractor you're a lucky person indeed!  :)

    Wausau Homes Inc
    If you just want to purchase a stock prebuilt home, they could possibly handle just that. But, if you need concrete work and other items done for completion of your potential home, sub contract to a true professional and let the actual contractors handle everything along with yourself as I would guess that you will get no qualified help from this company above and beyond what the home manufacturer offers.

    DERRICK CONSTRUCTION CO
    First--Derrick is located in New Richmond, not sure how the Hudson address came up.  Derrick Construction was professional, creative, listened to what we wanted to do, and they were great at communicating with us when their subs would be calling to schedule work.  Their design center was well stocked with classic and on-trend samples of tile, flooring, counter tops, cabinets, and other finishing materials.  Their cabinet maker is incredibly talented and was able to design a new storage cabinet that matched the cabinets we were re-using. Subs were professional, friendly, and cleaned up after themselves well.  There was a leak that developed over time in the new shower, and when I called about it, their "handyman" was out that day to look at it.  It was repaired to our satisfaction quickly and at no cost to us since it was under their builder's warranty.  We are very pleased with our new shower, floors, sink area, and beautiful built in storage unit.  We were just as pleased with their fantastic customer service.
