Did a staff architect from a mass-builder ask you what your perfect home would look like? We didn’t think so. Sonnenburg Builders doesn’t build McMansions. We are custom home builders, and our job is to make your dreams come true, not tell you what your dreams should be.

If you have custom blueprints drawn by your own architect, or just a sketch on the back of a napkin, Sonnenburg Builders will help you implement the design and layout you want, with cost-saving advice and tips guided by our years of experience.

When you have your new home custom-built by the Manitowoc Master Builders, you get to choose every detail, from the color of the walls down to cabinet doorknobs. The number of customizable features is staggering. We make it easier by showing you our full line of windows and doors, cabinets and countertops, kitchen and bathroom plumbing fixtures and more at our home design showroom in Manitowoc.

Energy-Efficient Design Means More Money in your Pocket

The number one advantage of building a new home vs. buying an older house is energy efficiency. Modern windows and doors, insulation and energy-efficient HVAC and appliances are easier to build into the DNA of a new home than to retrofit into an older one.

In many cases, up-front investment in the “green” option is no more costly than conventional systems, and they pay for themselves in savings when the utility bills come due.

You never know when the next heating gas shortage will turn into a permanent hike in utility costs. Building an energy-efficient home from the ground up protects your wallet against unpredictable fluctuations in the energy market.

Sonnenburg Builders will also let you know about any tax credits and incentives available to you when you choose energy-efficient new home construction.

Side-by-Sides and Income Properties Built from Scratch

More and more, people in the market for new home construction are choosing side-by-sides or multi-unit homes. There are a few reasons this can be an attractive option; with an owner-occupied rental property, homeowners can effectively subsidize their mortgage payment with rental income, and living in close proximity to tenants allows you to keep a close eye on how they treat your property.

The other main reason people choose side-by-sides is to provide a separate living space for multi-generational homes.

Whether it’s for your adult children, or as a way to keep your aging parents close while still granting the independence of living separately, multi-unit dwellings are growing in popularity as more and more Americans embrace multi-generational living.
