    If you want a quality home keep looking. Poor quality work, cuts corners, poor communicator, non-responsive once you close and are left with the mess. I closed in April 2019 and I uncover new issues daily. He dug my foundation too deep and I live in the swamp he created on what should have been a high elevation lot. It is mid-August and I am waiting for his landscaper, Alt's Operation LLC, to tear up my yard a 3rd time to try to fix it. Nothing short of a nightmare.

    Scullion Builders, LLC
    Added 750 sq ft of finished basement - 2 bedrooms, full bath with shower and rec room. Shaun and his crews are really the best! Great job all done on cost, on time and with attention to detail. Tops on customer service, professionalism and quality. We are beyond happy with the both the finished project and the entire building process. Would highly recommend Shaun and Scullion builders for any of your construction needs! See our project photos on his Facebook page: [*** Link removed ***]

    Very poorly. Warranty representatives with the company seem to last no more than a few months. New representatives visit, acknowledge the problems, and make promises to correct the problems. After numerous calls, little work is completed. The warranty rep quits, another is hired and the cycle repeats. After two years of trying to work with this company we have lost all patience. If you are looking for a home builder committed to quality and customer service, look elsewhere

    S. Greve & Son

    Met with Steve Greve to discuss dream of restoring my childhood home, which was built in the 1850's and bought by my grandfather in 1898, repairing it and making modern energy efficient improvements and to build a new addition. He gave me an outline of work to be done. I contacted a historic preservation architect to review plans and meet with Steve. We submitted 10 major projects to the State Historical Society for approval for tax credits. Other sub contractors who worked with the project had been the ones who had referred me to Steve originally. I was very impressed with his professionalism and attention to detail so my apprehensions about undertaking such a major and expensive project were calmed. The architect working with us was so impressed with the high quality of work that he began to refer other historic preservation projects of his firm to Steve and his son Ben.
     Old milk house and basement shanty behind the house were demolished and a new basement dug on that footprint for addition and back porch. In the process it was discovered that the beam under the back of the old house was decaying. The house was shored up and a new beam installed. Interior of house was gutted. Old woodwork was removed, numbered and sent to painters toremove old lead paint.It was later used in restoring interior walls and windows. Old beams were reinforced with new beams under directions from a structural engineering assessment. New plumbing, heating and electrical systems were installed. New energy efficient windows, which met criteria set by State Historical guidelines were installed. Old house was 3 bricks deep on the foundation and insulation was added to that. Dry walls replaced the old plaster and lath walls. Wooden floors were refurbished. Asbestos linoleum was removed from kitchen floor and replaced with new kitchen flooring. Original kitchen cabinets were reinforced and new kitchen cabinets added. A 75 year old furnace was removed from the basement along with all the old asbestos covered heating pipes. New cement flooring was installed. Rubble walls in old basement were cleaned of coal dust and whitewashed. Old fireplace bricks were repaired and a safety lining was installed. Old bricks which had been the outside back of the house were removed and saved to use in refurbishing and repairing original brickwork on the house. Addition was then added to back of house. New roof was installed on old house and addition. Old garage was reinforced and modern garage door with opener installed and designed to match garage exterior. New garage was built near new addition. Porch on front of house had extensive wood rot so it was removed, keeping the original roof supported, and rebuilt with new pillars, railings and screens. In the back yard a small foundation was built for the original small milk house next to the old barn. It was moved from that site to the new foundation to become a gardening house. Steve chose and coordinated all the work of the subcontractors and interior decorator.
    Restoration was a long project. Every day I witnessed the great patience and attention to detail and restoration expertise and was impressed and thankful for the good work. Good relationships with all workers made a horrendous task enjoyable. Since having the major work done I have used the Greves for odd jobs and minor repairs that needed attention. I also have immediate help from plumbers, painters, electricians and heating repair when needed. 
    I give S. Greve and son the highest recommendation possible. I have had other people considering restoration projects with them call me. I tell them they are the best in their field and have a great reputation with all the subcontractors they coordinate.

    Oakridge Construction of WI Inc
    Duane toured the site, identifying a couple of my concerns as non-issues, but validated most concerns and identified a couple new serious mistakes by the general contractor that ultimately included inadequate structural support placing my home at risk of future collapse. His professionalism was apparent from not only his knowledge, but also Duane refused any compensation for his time and he apologized that anyone in his profession would do this to me. A protracted legal situation ensued to assess damages, untangle questionable financials and terminate the contract with my first builder. Duane provided additional guidance as to best repair options and expected costs. Duane's deep expertise and demonstrated integrity throughout the process made him my choice to trust taking over construction as general contractor to make required repairs and complete my home. ||Duane worked effectively with subcontractors whose work was partially complete under my first contractor (electrician, plumber, HVAC, etc.), as well as brought in new subcontractors that he previously worked with and trusted. As work resumed, more problems arising from the previous builder surfaced that added significant cost, schedule delays and many hours of Duane's project management time. Duane's advice was invaluable on best trade-offs to manage overall budget and construction quality, and he diligently searched for multiple subcontractor quotes who could best limit cost over-runs while doing quality work in the race to get me into the house ASAP. At present, I've moved in under a temporary occupancy permit, so there are still some items for Duane/subcontractors to complete. I trust that Duane will get things complete, and warranty the work under his oversight. Oakridge was neither the cheapest nor most expensive. But when you build a house, particularly for the first time like myself, you need a general contractor who has deep, hands-on experience to know the right way to build a house that will give you pleasure in years to come instead of headaches and expenses. In addition, they need to calmly and effectively work with you to handle the unexpected complications. They must also have high personal and professional integrity as you need to rely on their advice for making inevitable trade-off decisions and their honesty handling your construction funds. Duane Ehle/Oakridge Construction exemplifies all these. The only significant problem I've observed are an occasional non-responsive subcontractor who wasn't part of Duane's trusted network. I suspect it was either misplaced loyalty to the previous general contractor, or since Oakridge isn't a large firm, subcontractors new to him aren't motivated to impress Oakridge under the expectation of significant future work through Duane. Overall, I'd highly recommend Duane Ehle/Oakridge Construction for new home construction or re-modeling work. He offers high value for a fair price, and is very pleasant to work with on what is a very stressful activity!

    Thompson Custom Builders
    The contracting went well.  John Thompson was good at explaining situations and remedying most problems that occurred.  Electric, plumbing, tile/flooring, and demo were excellent.  Some of the subs were not on schedule and did fast work that made it necessary for them to return several times which was exhausting.  There still is one item that has not been addressed.

    Building Concepts Inc
    With the first meeting to look over the home prior to purchasing, we knew we had the right guys for the job.  The attention to detail, quality of work and most importantly the customer service is outstanding. They coordinated with his team of subcontartors who also were top notch and kept the project on budget and on schedule. We would highly recommend Building Concepts in Sun Prairie for any job large or small, they simply are the best!
