Wausau Homes History
From dairy route to sawmill to one stop building center to where we are today, Wausau Homes’ 50+ year history is one of constant growth, innovation, and entrepreneurism. All along, we had a vision of continuous improvements to make the home buying process better for the consumer. Today, we put all that history together to Redefine the Building Experience.
Now, our team is totally transforming the home building industry by guaranteeing 100% of our homes are built exactly the way families want it, with a firm price up front that does not change at the end, and completed in the time frame determined at the beginning of the process.
No other company has taken the necessary steps, or made the commitment to make that happen. In business with Wausau Homes since 2002, Jed and Rick have partnered with us to make the same commitment.
No business model, no matter how good it is, will be successful unless there is the right culture to carry it out. As part of the Wausau Homes family, Jed and Rick share the core values that describes our culture on how we will conduct our business each and every day:
Integrity: Being Honest and Fair
Humility: Willing to Serve
Stewardship: Making the Organization Better
Work Ethic: Having Initiative, Dependability and Discipline
Passion: Strong Belief in What We Do
