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.

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.
I found a lot on Lake Winnebago and bought it with a handshake. I looked online for a builder and found PortSide Builders. We met with a custom home designer at PortSide an…

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.

Words cannot adequately describe our pleasure working with PortSide Builders on the project of our new home. From our initial meeting with Alan Shefchik, our Custom Designer, we knew we had made the right decision. Alan was great to work with in laying out the plans and, because of his building expertise, was able to add suggestions each step of the way. It has been our pleasure and we highly recommend PortSide for all your building needs.

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
We have been extremely impressed with the services provided by PortSide Builders. At the beginning of our project they provided us with a work schedule and they always kept to the schedule. When we had a question or concern it was immediately addressed. Most of the time issues were addressed even before we mentioned them. We are extremely happy with PortSide and would recommend this company to anyone contemplating home remodeling, roof replacement or any other type of building project.

People ask what we would do differently. Well, we wouldn’t do anything differently. Our Custom Designer / Building Consultant really captured our imagination with the design of the home. Our Coordinator’s experience was invaluable. His buidling genius was a huge help every step of the way.
Bob & Beverly Purves
Building a house was a huge decision. We met our Custom Designer, Zach, when attending a parade of homes. He was the only builder we met who took the time to talk to us and acted interested at all. We have had pretty much unfettered access daily to our Construction Coordinator, Joe. We are really proud of our new PortSide home and just as proud to tell others that PortSide built it.
Michael & Jill Shaffer Plonske
We are very happy with the results of the remodel and the addition of a sunroom and master bedroom suite that PortSide Builders planned and completed for us. Not only were the PortSide employees and subcontractors professional throughout the design and construction process, they were also kind, understanding and helpful. The craftsmanship of the finished project is excellent. We would recommend PortSide to anyone with a building or remodeling project.
Honoring the land passed down through the generations, was the challenge we brought to PortSide Builders. Our former campsite was transformed into a safe, accessible, low maintenance home by their capable employees. Everyone was friendly, patient, detail-oriented, and willing to answer questions. We’re enjoying our home with the peace of mind that comes from knowing it was built the right way by PortSide Builders.
