#2 - You're Located in Our Service Area

We focus on a specific service area to ensure top-notch service and competitive pricing for our clients. We strive to optimize efficiency by considering each project's size, scope, and distance from our office while being attentive to budget and timeline constraints.

Our main coverage area spans Milwaukee and Waukesha County. The majority of our work is found in Brookfield, Delafield, Elm Grove, Hartland, Mukwonago, New Berlin, Oconomowoc, Pewaukee, Sussex, Waukesha, Wauwatosa, and surrounding neighborhoods.

With our showroom situated in New Berlin, we strive to serve homes within a 60-minute radius. This proximity allows our team to deliver exceptional service and ensures we can promptly address any project concerns that may arise.

Contact us to find out if your project falls within our service area. If you are close to the border or believe we should make a special exception for your custom home or remodel project, please don't hesitate to contact us, as we occasionally make exceptions, based on the project.

#3 - Your Budget Aligns with Our Pricing

While we don't have a fixed minimum for the projects we undertake, our expertise is best utilized on projects that require both design and construction. As each project is unique, we can design it to fit your budget. In cases where the project scope doesn't align with your budget, we strive to find a balance that works for you.

We are the best fit for homeowners who want to invest in their homes and create a space they will have for many years to come. Our ideal clients value premium materials and exceptional craftsmanship.

We are not the right fit for property flippers or fast, inexpensive remodels.

As a design-build company, our projects encompass design, materials, a dedicated project manager, permits, and labor. Every project is unique, and the cost depends on factors such as size, age of the home (remodel), level of finish, and complexity.

#4 - You Have Time to Commit to the Process

Planning a custom home or remodeling project takes time. We adhere to a proven step-by-step process to ensure the success of your project.

The project timeline encompasses various activities and meetings, such as:

  • Initial Consultation
  • Site Evaluation
  • Presenting Design Concepts & Floorplans
  • Material Selection
  • Reviewing Bids
  • Finalizing the Contract
  • Obtaining City Permits

Bear in mind that most custom home and renovation projects require weeks or even months of planning. The process involves making numerous decisions, including floor plan layouts, fixtures, finishes, cabinets, flooring, appliances, and more. While some homeowners can make quick decisions, others might take weeks or months to settle on their preferences.

What Else Sets Us Apart?

Ware Design Build is solving the problem of the home building and remodeling process being stressful and over budget. We make a difference by working closely with our clients to help them establish their budget, and design accordingly to that budget. We alleviate the common fear of being locked into a contract that surpasses one's budget and being committed to a builder without any way out.

We set ourselves apart by investing considerable time and effort upfront, ensuring our clients feel comfortable and confident in the details included in their homes. We defy the status quo of signing a contract only to discover later that certain elements are not included, resulting in a budget overrun, with no choice but to proceed. Our mission is to offer a refreshing alternative.

At Ware Design Build, our clients experience the peace of mind that comes from having complete control and transparency during the home building or remodeling process. We pride ourselves on being different and prioritizing your needs and expectations above all else.

This approach is the exact opposite of other builders, and it puts you, the client, first.
