OUR SIGNATURE PROCESS
YOUR VISION & LIFESTYLE
A house is a home only when it facilitates life as you live it. What sets a great builder apart from a good one is their ability to listen and ask the right questions. It all begins with you.
BUDGET & PRIORITIES
The critical first-step. Whether you’re prepared to invest $500K or $3M, we’ll help you navigate the choices and establish priorities that guide the process and keep it all on track.
DESIGN & PLANNING
Before a hammer is swung – experience your dream by way of our patented 3D modeling. Approve the schedule and the path it takes to get there with all the pieces and parts in place.
COLLABORATION & COMMUNICATION
Paramount to the process is clear, open channels of communication. From design to scheduling to finish carpentry, our team is committed to keeping you informed and in control.
CONSTRUCTION & FINISHING
Our “signature” is your assurance. We strive to deliver unprecedented quality in every home we build. Where there’s joy in the details and a foundation of integrity for generations to come.
After working several years for a general contractor in Stevens Point, Wisconsin, Peter Blenker, along with his wife Pamela Jewell, decided to venture out on their own. In 1974, Peter and Pamela started Blenker Construction Inc., a contractor doing mostly remodeling and additions. After business began picking up, Peter hired on a few more people. Peter would run the jobs and Pamela would do the design work, while trying to raise three rambunctious young boys.
In the early ’80s, Peter Blenker and Pam Jewell turned to new construction and light commercial properties. Peter and Pam began building a reputation in the central Wisconsin for their craftsmanship, award-winning designs and custom details.
The ’90s realized considerable innovation when we brought wall and floor panel production on line for the custom homes we built. This was the first step in manufacturing homes in a more controlled, safe and consistent manner.
In 2004, the companies were re-organized under the parent company, Blenker Companies Inc. Blenker Companies contains 5 subsidiary companies, all acting independently.
The Blenker Signature Homes brand is focused on bringing your ideas, designs and ultimately your story to life with the construction of a custom designed home of your very own.
Blenker Signature Homes operates as your premier design/build firm, meaning we provide both design and construction services all under one roof and under one contract. It also means that the flow of work is unified all the way from our initial interview with you to the finished construction of your custom home.
Our relationship with you is made stronger because we’re one united and collaborative team, focused on meeting your budget, your expectations, completing your home on time and effectively ensuring your peace of mind from beginning to end.
We believe when you Build Something Great, then every home is a castle, and therefore every story we tell through a custom home of your own ends as a fairytale would…happily ever after.
Our company and its core values are at the heart of everything we do. Whenever a decision has to be made, the questions must be asked, “Does it meet our core values?,” if it does not, then we will not proceed. The guidelines will help steer our decision making process to ensure customer satisfaction, retain quality employees, and produce the highest quality products and services. Keep those ideals in mind when completing your day to day duties and when in doubt run it through these tests of core values before continuing.
