What to Expect When Building Your Custom Home with Us

We strive to be the best custom home builders in the Fox Cities, so transparency and clear communication are at the forefront of everything we do, from beginning to end of the home construction process. Building a new home can seem intimidating, so we want to walk you through what to expect when you choose Virtue Homes as your home builder.


Are you dreaming of a sleek, modern design style? Or has a contemporary new build caught your eye? Whether you’re going for pure luxury or just an updated take on a classic design style, we know we’re not building any old home, we’re building your dream home. Your involvement every step of the way during the construction process is crucial! 

How Long Does it Take to Build a Custom Home?

With Virtue Homes, our general timeline for custom home construction is as follows:

  • Lot Selection: 1-3 weeks
  • Design Build Plan: 4-8 weeks
  • Contract & Budget: 4-6 weeks
  • Home Construction: 16-24 weeks
  • Close Out / Move-In: 1-2 weeks

While we try to be as quick and efficient as possible, our experience as custom home builders and contractors here in the Fox Cities has taught us that sometimes even the best-laid plans can go awry. From our unpredictable Wisconsin weather to materials on backorder, things come up that can delay the above schedule.

But don’t fret! At Virtue Homes, it is our most solemn promise that we will always keep you up to date with any changes to the construction schedule or budget, so you always know exactly what to expect!

How Much Does a Custom Home Cost?

The cost of a custom home varies greatly depending on the level of customization and specifications laid out by each new client. The style of your home, whether you’re building a modern farmhouse, classic Cape Cod, or contemporary Craftsman, can impact costs.  Material prices also fluctuate frequently, so it’s difficult to pinpoint an exact figure at any given time.

Although prices can widely vary, as your custom home builders, we will always stay within your specified budget to give you your dream home. Virtue Homes will provide you with an estimate that’s unique to the home you want to build.
