Design Build

What does “Design/Build” mean?
A Design/Build project is the process of designing and then building a SPECIFIC home that best fits a clients needs. A custom home isn’t always expensive, but it IS always SPECIFIC.

Beginning with a meet and greet, we learn about our clients and their unique needs, and determine if a Wirtanen Home is a good fit. We talk about lot selection, home plans and layout, schedules, and pricing.

If our process and pricing fit, we proceed to the fun part – Design! We own professional drafting software, and draft each plan we build in-house.

This process of designing and then building a home ultimately creates the ideal home package, allocating a budget where it provides the most value to the client.

For example, a client may say “We love to refurbish cars, so an oversized garage is a priority for us”, or “We need a Ranch style home with wheelchair/handicap access”, or “I work nights and am a light sleeper, so the silence of a radiant heat system and cost for additional sound insulation are a must” …….With countless similar requests, we design each home to mesh clients’ lifestyle with their budget!

“Since 2006 when the Wirtanens built my current home–a project that came in ahead of schedule and on budget, not to mention including “extras” like full interior wood trim that other builders wanted thousands more to install–I’ve trusted them and their subcontractors more than once to provide quality work for additions and changes to my property. From building a permanent 16’x18′ workshop complete with full insulation and custom power to a simple repaint of my main house, I know that they will do quality work every time, and for a reasonable price. I even recommended them to my parents, and now the Wirtanens are building their retirement home; I wouldn’t trust just anyone to build my mother and father’s home. You can count on them to do a quality job every time!” Rob Sherry
