How do you bring a client’s vision to life?
We work through a highly collaborative design and selection process and spend an extensive amount of time educating our clients on the build timeline, identifying priorities, and supporting our clients as they make decisions on their home. During this pre-build undertaking, we also build the budget components, thoughtfully allocating funds to align with priorities. The result is a highly customized design focused on luxury and livability.
What inspires and influences your work?
Working closely with our clients and seeing their dream home become a reality is a paycheck for our soul. We embrace our client’s commitment to placing their own stamp on their home by pursuing unique design features and materials to create a highly customized forever home. With a special focus on layout and flow, we foster that feeling of style and comfort to forge luxury spaces for evolving and modern lifestyles.
What are the most important elements of a successful build team?
Integrity, knowledge, experience, quality communications, and structured and streamlined processes using open book-based decision-making allows us to work as a true builder-client team that delivers a beautifully designed and architected home at a reasonable value for our clients to enjoy.
How did you get started in the building industry?
We founded Chamberlain Homes after 20 years in the high-tech industry starting with major remodeling projects. Eventually, we moved into new construction, building custom spec homes initially, then client-driven custom homes. In 2018, we took our first steps into land development with the design of a housing addition. Today we have two developments – one in Orono and the other in Shorewood.
What sets your company apart?
We are a small builder who strives to build highly customized homes at a reasonable price. To accomplish this, we operate in a completely open-book style with extensive client involvement during the design and estimating process. It is our goal to work collaboratively with our clients to create a dream home that exceeds their expectations and meets intended priorities with a team of value-driven professional trade partners. We utilize thoughtful, organized project management to reduce the build time, thereby saving our clients financially.
