Our story began several years ago when my husband of 40 years and I began to downsize our home after our children grew up. We had talked about selling our house to buy a smaller place on the water, somewhere near our home in Milwaukee. A dream we spoke of often, but realistically, never believed it would come true.

We had been planning to remodel the main floor of our home for quite a while. Our Custom Designer, Joe Englebert, worked patiently with us until we arrived at a design that we could get really excited about.

We chose PortSide Builders because they listened so well to our request to build the most energy efficient home practical, using innovative techniques. They were all enthusiastic about our ideas, from designers to job site personnel, and partnered with us to build our dream.
Tom & Bev Prohl
In addition to PortSide building our house in 2007, this project was the fourth one they done for us. We keep coming back to PortSide for good reasons. They are customer focused and responsive, they stick to a schedule, and they perform quality work for a fair price. If we undertake a fifth project, we will definitely be contacting PortSide again.
Ed & Helene Conlon
PortSide was great to work with from the initial visit through the completion of the project. They helped us to see the big picture of the renovation and presented design details that really finished off our kitchen. These details made the new renovation flow nicely into our house and make it fell like the new kitchen was always here.
Kris & Elizabeth Wilson
Loved working with PortSide. Kurt is very knowledgable, and has great ideas and recommendations. Kurt is wonderful to work with, as well as being very patient and understanding as the build is going on.
Shelly & Peter Freund
I was very pleased with PortSide’s work from start through completion, and have the highest regard for Jim Englebert, who supervised the construction of this home, and made myriad contributions at every step of the building process.
We want to thank everyone at PortSide for delivering to us such a beautiful house! We feel that everyone went above and beyond to make us happy. The only way we can truly thank PortSide is to tell everyone how happy we are with your work. We are doing that at every opportunity.

From home design, to lot purchase, referring us to a loan officer, answering questions, and making our dream home a reality.We definitely made a connection with our Home Designer, Zach Juadis, and feel we have made a friend for life. Thank you for helping us every step of the way to build our dream home!

The expertise and assistance PortSide Builders provided has been invaluable. Their work in facilitating site selection and building approvals with local planning commissions has made it possible for us to determine and establish locations that have proven very successful.
