Building a Custom Home it’s more than a process, its relationship.

At Engerman Contracting, we believe that building a custom home is more than just a process; it’s about fostering relationships and trust. Our clients return to us time and again for their projects, whether it’s initial builds, remodeling and additions, or new property developments. This loyalty speaks volumes about the trust and satisfaction they have in our work—a testament to our commitment to excellence in every project.

Not every custom home builder in the area shares our philosophy. We prioritize quality over quantity, ensuring dedicated attention from project inception to completion. Every detail matters to us, and we work closely with our longstanding trade partners and industry professionals to deliver impeccable craftsmanship and superior service. This collaborative approach guarantees that your vision is brought to life with precision and care, reflecting our unwavering commitment to exceeding your expectations.

Land & Lot Acquisition
You may own the land that you want to build one, or are looking for land with our longstanding relationships with local real estate professionals; we help you find the perfect lot that fits your custom home plan, making your dream a reality from the very beginning.

Custom Home Design
As the premier custom home builder in Lake Geneva and surrounding areas we have built long lasting, strong relationships with architects and interior designers to complement our build process. Throughout the process we continually collaborate closely with your architect to create a custom home that check all the boxes for your lifestyle, desired features and budget. We also offer stock plans which we have built in the past which could offer cost savings and could be subtly modified to fit your lifestyle.

Feature Specifications Development
It is truly in the details; this separates Engerman from the rest. With your help, we create a comprehensive specification listing cataloging every large (roofing or siding) and small (cabinet knob or robe hook) element of your project. These selections fill in the details of the plans to make the home yours. Plumbing fixtures, cabinets, appliances, finish carpentry, paint colors and more are some of the items we navigate with you. With our stock plans, the selections have been already made, but could be tweaked based on your input.

Project Management
Once the project permit has been assigned to our schedule, we will issue a project schedule, outlining all major steps within the home construction process including major decision points and selection timing. An Engerman representative will be checking in with you each step of the way usually weekly to keep the process from becoming overwhelming. We break it down into small manageable bites which allows the build schedule to remain on time and within budget-no surprises.

Home Construction
We manage/oversee all aspects of your custom home construction, from serving as the point of contact for all subcontractors, consultants, vendors and city inspectors (as required by ordinances) to communicate selections, changes, and to resolve issues if they arise. Construction will be overseen by your Project Manager, who will be on site ensuring all work is done to specifications, using the highest quality building materials and techniques. We will liaison with any title company or financial institution to facility their inspections as well.

Project Completion
Our in-depth closing walk through includes a final inspection by the local building inspector. John Engerman will be present during this walk through and will join you and your Project Manager for a detailed walk-through to compile a final “to-do list.”, if necessary. Upon move-in you will receive a Welcome Home packet which includes all warranty information including operational manuals, contact information for subcontractors on the project and the occupancy permit. We will schedule an orientation with the mechanical contractors to familiarize you to the workings of the home.

We offer a 1 year warranty on various items in the home, so give us a call.
