What makes WLH Custom Homes the best choice?

Updated: Dec 19, 2018

On a regular basis, we get asked the question “what makes WLH Custom Homes better than all the other companies out there?” Truth is, there are many reputable companies in this industry and we are grateful to have a longstanding track record of excellence and be amongst all of them. That being said, to answer our clients’ question, these are the top reasons we feel we are the best choice.


Aside from the Janczak family (our founders/owners), the entire WLH Custom Homes team is family. We are a tight-knit group of design and build experts all working together toward the same goal – making sure our clients receive the best quality in both the services they receive and the home they will live in.

There’s something to be said for doing business with a privately owned, hard-working, honest company. Our clients come to us because they trust us; this is the ultimate compliment and one we take very seriously. We earn our clients’ trust right from the start by being upfront and honest with them even if it means we might not get their business. Especially when it comes to pricing, we refuse to provide any unrealistic numbers or expectations just to get someone in the door. Our business name, our family’s name, and our reputation means everything to us and we will never jeopardize that just to make a sale.


Our clients and their homes truly mean the world to all of us at WLH Custom Homes. Each team member is personally invested in every project that comes through our door. Nate Janczak (Owner), works alongside our experts from the design phase through construction (he is also our hands-on General Contractor) making sure each project receives his own personal insight from concept to completion. Even though you might only work directly with some of us throughout the process to keep things organized and streamlined, you have a complete team of behind-the-scenes experts each playing a major role in bringing your dream home to fruition. This isn’t just a business to us, this is our passion and who we are.


When you work with us, every square inch of your home is customized to fit your needs, wants and style. Endless hours are put into working with clients to create their highly functional floor plan and a dream home that meets all their expectations. We have never designed or built the same home twice.

There are no limits when selecting options for each and every finish that goes into your unique home. We are not a company that will show you option A, B or C for each item, have you pick one of them, and call it “custom.” We are a company that has a vast amount of options for everything that goes into your truly, one-of-a-kind custom home. However, some clients will personally request our team to show them only 2-3 options based on our expertise to make their decisions easier… and we are happy to do so! Having a team of Architectural Designers, Builders, Craftsmen and an Interior Designer really makes the custom home process simple, efficient and rewarding for our clients.


Our goal has never been to provide the most homes; it’s always been to provide the best homes. If we focused on designing and building as many homes as physically possible, we would be forced to sacrifice the level of quality in both our services and our homes – because ultimately, we would be spread too thin – and we would in turn be sacrificing everything our company is about.

By not focusing on selling the most homes, we have been able to virtually “hand-hold” each client throughout the entire design/build journey and beyond. We take the time to be thorough and give each client our very best and the personalized time and attention each project requires. Our clients tell us routinely that they really appreciate the personal service they receive from us at every stage of the process and that they are not just a number pushed through a business.


If it doesn’t challenge you, it doesn’t change you.” We accept every challenge from our clients that comes our way, such as a unique design idea/request that becomes a chain reaction to other structural components throughout the home. Almost every project has something that needs to be worked through diligently. Whether it takes a few hours or a few days, our team prides itself in striving to make anything happen for our clients and ensuring that we do everything right the first time. Each challenge brings growth to our team, so we welcome them with open arms.


Our parent company, Wisconsin Log Homes, has been in business since 1976. Our Founders shaped the national log and timber home industry into what it is today. Our team has worked on custom wood homes and custom conventional homes of all different sizes, styles, and calibers. Each project has brought new challenges, ideas and lessons that are invaluable to our success. Our history is more than just things we’ve done in the past; it’s the knowledge and experience that we have gained along the way that has brought us where we are today.

We’re not a team that will boast by saying we’ve done it all… we’re a team that will be humble and always look forward to what’s to come. We’re a team that doesn’t follow, we lead.
