When it comes to building your dream home, the winter months might seem like an impossible time to start construction due to harsh weather conditions. However, you'll be pleasantly surprised to learn that your local Wausau Homes builder can make it happen. It’s SNOW Problem!

In this blog post, we'll explore how your custom home builder can create a safe and efficient worksite during the winter months and how you can benefit from this convenient build schedule.


Safe Building Experience: Shielding Your Home from Winter Elements

Traditional Builds vs. Wausau Homes' Approach

Building a home in winter poses challenges, especially for traditional stick-built homes that can take up to two months to frame. During this time, the framework can be exposed to brutal winter winds and heavy snowfall, potentially leading to issues in the construction process and project delays. Wausau Homes, on the other hand, employs an innovative panelized custom home building process that ensures your home remains safe from the elements.

Climate-Controlled Precision

At Wausau Homes, we maintain a climate-controlled facility where our skilled craftsmen can frame your home all year round. Once the foundation is ready, the panelized framework is sent to the construction site and assembled by a professional crew in just one to five days. This swift process minimizes exposure to harsh outdoor conditions, preventing issues like wet and warped framework due to sudden snowstorms.

Quality Assurance

Regardless of the season, Wausau Homes guarantees precision craftsmanship and the use of high-quality materials in every project. Your home will stand strong for decades to come, with peace of mind knowing it's built to last.

Convenient Timeline: Move-in When You Want

Optimal Timing for New Homeowners

Spring is the perfect time to move into your new home, especially if you want to make the most of your summer. This timeline is exceptionally convenient for those planning a vacation home or a rebuild. Don't let the frustration of completing your custom vacation home at the end of summer force you to leave it empty during the winter. Plan your build around your schedule so you can move in precisely when you desire.

Swift Turnaround

Traditional construction schedules typically start in the spring and may not finish before the snow arrives. At Wausau Homes, we understand the importance of your timeline, which is why we've structured our building process to guarantee an on-time move-in date, sometimes in as few as 120 days.

Holiday Celebrations in Your New Home

Building in the winter allows you to make holiday announcements to friends and family. Host a going-away party or family celebration during the holidays when everyone is already gathered. Whether you're moving nearby or far away, a winter build ensures your loved ones are there to celebrate with you.


Winter Building: Flexibility and Choice

Take Advantage of the Winter Season

Since winter traditionally experiences slower construction activity, you have more flexibility in setting your build schedule and securing your desired move-in date. Plus, you can get first pick at your dream lot.
