Benson Builders is a Certified Green Builder specializing in custom designed and handcrafted unique indoor and outdoor living spaces. Our exceptional service begins with helping you define your needs and sense of style, and creating designs based around that. We provide quality, personalized service during every phase of the building process. And that service doesn't end. Your living space is as changeable as you are and for that reason we are always available for additions, renovations and repairs.
Benson Builders will accept jobs throughout Northern Wisconsin and the Northwoods areas including Land O’ Lakes, Conover, Eagle River, Three Lakes, St. Germain, Minocqua, Lac Du Flambeau, Boulder Junction, Manitowish Waters, Presque Isle, Watersmeet, Iron River, Phelps, and Lake Tomahawk. If you do not see your location listed please contact us to find out more.
The process starts with an initial meeting to discuss the scope of your project, your style preferences, ideas, budget and general design concepts. Over the years we have created a Design Development Questionnaire to help us get a better understanding for how you live and the way your home will be used. This broad range of thought provoking questions addresses everything from size of the project to desired finishes.
Every Benson Builder design is unique and suited to the personal needs and lifestyles of our customers. Our experienced staff will coach you through the design process based on your input and feedback. In addition to creating a plan that is exciting and one-of-a-kind, we will also make recommendations on cost saving measures where appropriate and areas to incorporate unique design elements. As many of the homes we build are secondary residences, our staff has become very proficient using email throughout the design process so that the need for face-to-face interaction is limited.
Benson Builders builds the finest homes in the Northwoods. In order to build the best we believe that we have to employ the best. By employing the finest craftsmen and women in their respective trades we are able to build with unsurpassed quality and a level of fit and finish that is second to none. The key to a successful project starts in the design phase. Our staff takes the time necessary during this initial phase to insure that the final product will far exceed our client’s expectations. Benson’s design consultant is available to assist whenever necessary throughout the process to make the arduous task of selections an efficient and enjoyable experience.
The experience gained from thirty-eight years of building homes allows our staff to know how and where to incorporate the unique details that will make your home truly special. Our staff has a passion for seeking out new and unique materials and is always looking for the perfect opportunity to incorporate them into one of our projects.
Admittedly Benson Builders has had the distinct privilege of building some of the finest log homes in the Northwoods. Although many of our homeowners seek the traditional Northwoods look, log is not all that we do. Incorporating a variety of different materials into a design puts a unique spin on tradition. Cedar shakes and board-and-batten combined with the old-school look of vertical logs creates a classic, rustic look without compromising the Northwoods feel the majority of our customers are seeking. In the past we have built many different styles of homes and welcome the challenge that comes with trying something new. The quality of our craftsmanship and the strength of our process easily transfers to any style of home.
Although our team creates the plans for most of the homes we build, a number of them are designed by our homeowner’s own architect. Our staff knows how to co-manage a project with an independent architect and is respectful of the creative authority they generally demand during the life of a project.
As long as you own the rights to the plans and are not infringing on any copyrights, Benson will gladly build from your plans. If for some reason the plans are not perfect, we can make modifications and recommend areas for improvement as appropriate.
