FAQ on Custom Home Building

Frequently Asked Questions

q. Who Is Ideal Homes, Inc.?

A. We’re a locally owned and operated new custom home builder in Southeastern Wisconsin. We’ve been building neighborhoods and family dreams in Wisconsin for 20 years. Some of the areas we build include: Muskego, Brookfield, Oconomowoc, New Berlin, Hartland, Delafield, Milwaukee, Pewaukee, Waukesha, Mukwonago, Wauwatosa, as well as other popular communities in Southeastern Wisconsin. We are a private-owned, woman-owned business. Ideal Homes, Inc. is WBE, WBENC, EBE, and DBE Certified. We build the Ideal Home for you.


q. How Long is the Build Time for a New Home?

A. Under most circumstances, our build times are as little as 120 days. Because our owners and management team visit new home construction sites each and every day, this allows us to maintain a faster build time than most.


Q. What is the Process to Begin Building a New Custom Home?

A. For a list of the steps involved in building your new Ideal Home, visit our Process Page. Building your new custom home is an exciting experience and our team of skilled builders, designers, and architects will help direct you each step along the way. We ensure a happy and satisfying experience for all.


Q. What If I Have a Home to Sell First?

A. If you have a home to sell, don’t fret. Your purchase of a new Ideal Home can be contingent upon the sale of your current home. Once the contingency is removed, we can begin to build your new custom home together. For more details on how this works, please contact our office at 414-324-8203.


Q. Can I Build On My Own Lot?

A. Of course, you can! We can build your new custom Ideal Home on your own lot or one of ours. Visit our communities page to view neighborhoods where Ideal Homes, Inc. has Southeastern Wisconsin home sites available for purchase. If you don’t own your own lot and you don’t find what you’re looking for on our communities page, please contact our office. Our Vice-President is a licensed real estate agent and broker who can help you find the perfect Southeastern Wisconsin location for your new custom home.
