Custom Homes

Jay and Michele - Elkhart Lake
Are most important consideration for selecting a Home builder are Quality and Value. We found the people at Hillcrest Builders to be very friendly and helpful to deal with. We were originally going to go with one of Hillcrest Builders model homes and slightly change a few things, but Hillcrest Builders designed a custom home that better fit our property and location. The design center helped us make selections to customize our home to our liking.
In general Hillcrest Builders craftsmanship and quality are very good. Rough carpenters and concrete are excellent.
Hillcrest Builders has responded to our warranty issues in a timely manner.
What we value most of our Hillcrest Builders home is the structural integrity of the home and out - building. The views out the windows.
In all it was a pleasurable experience working with Hillcrest Builders and their subcontractors.

Mike and Taffi - Sheboygan
This home is based on the Montrose Manor standard plan. Our customers chose exceptional finishes and amenities throughout their home. The Kitchen, the heart of the home, features custom cherry cabinetry, beautiful granite countertops, and large island. The Kitchen may be the heart, but the Great Room, with its high sloped ceilings with open loft and rich warm finishes is certainly the hub. The Master Bathroom Suite features an overflow tub with ceiling-mounted bath filler, spacious walk-in tile shower, and innovated fixtures. Please click below to hear our Customer's story.

We expanded the mudroom to a very generous size to accomodate our Customer's outdoor lifestyle and three dogs. The garage was increased to 3.5 with basement staircase and a separate staircase to the very expansive bonus room. Hillcrest did the entire project including landscaping and outdoor living spaces.

Green Building

Catherine - Plymouth
We are very proud to introduce Catching Peaceful Breezes. Catherine came to us with her vision of creating an age-in-place (ADA compliant) home that is energy neutral or better - no small goal. She also wanted a property in the country that would be serene and could accommodate a wind generator. We found her land, designed her home and the site improvements and created a unique architecture to fit her needs including a guest suite that doubles as a potential future care-taker apartment. The result is that we achieved LEED Platinum rating, one of five such homes in Wisconsin. Catherine can be self-sufficient in energy use and self-reliant on her property for the rest of her life.

Andre and Kim - Port Washington
Andre and I wanted to thank you for letting us move into our home early and taking the appropriate steps to insure the home properly. We appreciate your kindness and working with everyone from Hillcrest has been wonderful. I read recently the one of the best attributes a business man can have is kindness and that's what we'll remember most about you.

We love our Glenwood home! Thanks for encouraging us to buy a bigger lot. The home it perfect for it and I love looking at the back view upstairs from the upper window :) Our family will enjoy the home for many years to come. Can't express enough how happy we are.

Bob and Kelly - Sheboyagn
We are in the final phases of building a new home with Hillcrest Builders. Our experience with this company has been amazing! Oyvind Solvang (Owner) is very involved with the home building process. He met with us many times going through our plans and options. He was accommodating, yet realistic with what we could afford. We felt comfortable and at ease with the open line of communication they provided. Everyone on their team has been helpful and kind. Jim Kelly our project manager keeps us informed of progress and what we can expect to see during construction. He is very attentive and always responds to calls or emails the same day. The entire team at Hillcrest has really impressed us and we highly recommend anyone who is interested in building a new home to consider them!!
