About Our Design Studio

Brian and Chris Pesola, a father and son team, have been building custom homes in Marquette, Michigan since 1979.  The Pesola family was born and raised in the Marquette area and offer a personal touch to every home buyer’s experience. As former “Builders of the Year,” Brian and Chris are experts at the homebuilding process.

The Wausau Homes Marquette Design Studio is the premier builder in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. Each home Brian and Chris build is custom designed to meet your individual needs. From creating a floor plan to selecting the finishing touches, each home is built your way, with a firm price, and always on time.

Each Wausau Homes Builder is an independent local business, so you can have the confidence and ease of dealing with a local builder. Plus, each Wausau Homes Builder has access to all of the Wausau Homes design tools and Wausau Homes components.
