Custom Home Building

Every family is unique and we build that into our homes here at Bogard and Sons Construction. From a large family gathering at the lake to a more intimate retirement cottage with all of the luxuries you have earned, each home is built to match your specific needs and desires. In addition to taking all requests for wants and needs seriously we also find that some lake lots have special challenges. For instance, some lots call for a walk-out basement and others need to be set on the lot to maximize the view or increase privacy. At Bogard and Sons Construction all of these more complicated factors are considered when building a custom home for our clients. It is a major benefit for lake home buyers to take advantage of our unique and intimate knowledge of these types of considerations when setting out to construct a lake home. From complicated site work and design to the knocking out the final details on the punch list resulting in the total job completion, here at Bogard and Sons Construction we are all about the whole package and the entire process. It is a passion and an honor to have built homes of such splendor and beauty that families will be enjoying for years and generations.

We are very intentional in who we work with just as you are very intentional in who you work with on a large investment like a vacation home.

We let our clients know up front that we take our time in the details make sure it’s right the first time. Our tolerances for square, plumb and level are tighter than the industry standards and that results in a better-looking finished product every time. Our clients know this and prefer this high level of excellence over the quick cheap home. We want the homes that we build to last longer than the average house and stay in families for generations. We have found time and time again that spending a little extra time squaring up the footings and foundation actually saves us time in the long run when we are framing the walls, laying the floor and installing the roof above. This intensity gives you a well built house with no messy looking caulked joints and cracking drywall problems.
