Natural setting and custom-build options attract buyers

Jennifer and Justin Meyer weren’t planning on building a new house this fall, but then the couple checked out Riverwoods in Kenosha.
“The site is absolutely gorgeous,” Jennifer said, “and for about the same amount of money we could get a new house rather than an existing one.”
Kenosha-based Mastercraft Builders is developing the 38-lot Riverwoods subdivision off of 18th St. and 47th Ave.
The Meyers, who currently live nearby in another subdivision, plan on moving into their custom-built home in November or December.
Jennifer said Riverwoods offers a very workable floor plan that she and her husband were able to get to fit their needs.
“We have a lot of family furniture, so it was important that we have a formal dining room and living room,” she said.
The Meyers also were attracted to the abundance of nature and wildlife in Riverwoods, where she said she has already seen hawks and deer. The couple picked a lot that borders a wooded area.
“Where we live right now, we don’t even have squirrels,” she said. “Somewhere in the city, you can’t get that. We’re right smack in the middle of the Racine and Kenosha area, and it’s very peaceful.”
Lots, which range in size from one third of an acre to five-acres, start at $55,900 in Riverwoods. All lots include sewer and water service.
“Riverwoods is tucked away and surrounded by mature trees, creeks and a pond,” said sales consultant Lisa Metcalfe. “Daylight and walkout views, cul-de-sac and pond lots are still available.”
According to Metcalfe, Mastercraft’s customs homes are designed around customer needs and lifestyles. She cited a resident who chose the builder’s 2,300-square-foot Stanton floor plan.
“We added a flex room, third bathroom, 2 feet to her son’s bedroom, increased the size of the laundry room and added a charming porch and hip roof to the exterior of the home,” she said.
Mastercraft has planned two future phases for Riverwoods.
Metcalfe calls Riverwoods a great place to call home, and the Meyers plan on calling it home for a long time to come.
“We don’t ever envision ourselves moving again,” Jennifer Meyer said.
The city of Kenosha had an estimated population of 96,400, a 6.7% boost over the 2000 U.S. Census, as of Jan. 1, according to the state Department of Administration. Kenosha is home to the Kenosha Civil War Museum, the Washington Park Velodrome, the Kemper Center and the Southport Light Station Museum.
The neighborhood is served by the Kenosha School District, which has 22,933 students, according to the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction. It is the third largest school district in the state behind Milwaukee and Madison. Students in River Woods attend Somers Elementary School, Bullen Middle School and Bradford High School.

Wyndcrest Condominiums, Mount Pleasant Residents Find More Leisure Time with Move to Condo

As a local real estate agent, Maggie Gillis has seen quite a few condominium developments in the Milwaukee area. When she and her husband decided to downsize from a house to a condo, Gillis knew exactly where she wanted to live: Wyndcrest Condominiums in Mount Pleasant.
“It’s spacious and has the best floor plan for the money,” she said. “And it’s in a nice area.”
Kenosha-based Mastercraft Builders is developing the two-phase Wyndcrest, which will eventually feature 26 four-family buildings, west of N. Summerset Drive and north of Spring St. in the village. Access to I-94 is just minutes away.
Currently one lower-level condo and one upper-level condo are available for sale, with prices starting at $159,900. Mastercraft is starting a new building this fall, according to sales consultant Lisa Metcalfe.
The first phase will eventually have 14 buildings and the second phase will have 12 buildings. Wyndcrest’s first building was completed about three years ago, Metcalfe said.
Gillis and husband Rick planned to move into their new 1,800-square-foot, upper-level condo in Wyndcrest earlier this month.
The couple previously lived in a house in Mount Pleasant. Her husband has retired and decided he was done with yard work and shoveling snow, Gillis said.
“He gave away all his stuff that pertained to work,” she said.
The couple opted for a number of upgrades to their condo, including a granite counter top, wood flooring, special lighting to accent the stain glass art pieces Gillis designs and black appliances.
Gillis said she is happy to be moving into a home in which everything is new.
“The buildings are so clean and really beautiful,” she said. Her condo overlooks a large area of green space.
All units include two-vehicle, attached garages, private entrances, Whirlpool appliances, vaulted 9-foot ceilings and balconies or patios. Upper condos are 1,800 square feet and feature three bedrooms and two bathrooms and include bonus rooms. The 1,400-square-foot lower condos have two bedrooms and two bathrooms and feature full basements.
The development has a monthly maintenance fee of $125, which includes sewer and water services.
The village of Mount Pleasant, located in Racine County, had an estimated population of 26,100 at the end of 2008, a 12.8 % boost since the 2000 U.S. Census, according to the state Department of Administration. The nearby city of Racine had a population of 80,100 in the same survey. Mount Pleasant, which is 36.5 square miles in size, changed from being a town to a village after a 2003 referendum.
Wyndcrest is served by the Racine Unified School District, which has 21,276 students, according to the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction. Racine, the fourth largest school district in the state, has approximately 1,400 teachers and 110 administrators. The development is served by Gifford Elementary School, Starbuck Middle School and J.I. Case High School.

MASTERCRAFT BUILDERS CONSTRUCTS NEW HOME FOR THE 2006 HABITAT FOR HUMANITY "BUILDERS BLITZ"
Milwaukee's Metcalfe Park neighborhood was a pounding racket of construction activity Monday, as several hundred building industry veterans launched a five-day blitz to produce 10 new homes.
"It's off to a great start, with everything going on or ahead of schedule," said Matt Moroney, executive director of Metropolitan Builders Association, whose southeastern Wisconsin trade group organized the project. All 10 houses were up and shingled by the end of the first, adrenaline-rushed day.
"After that, if we get rain, it doesn't matter," Moroney said.
Contractors, tradespeople, suppliers and their allies donated their expertise, labor and materials - one all-encompassing donation to the anti-poverty group Milwaukee Habitat for Humanity.
The 10 small but sturdy homes, priced around $65,000, are all sold to credit-qualified buyers who met Habitat's requirements: an income of no more than $40,300 for a family of four and service of 500 hours of volunteer labor to Habitat activities. Habitat rules require a five-year stay or the owner must forgo resale profits.
"This means the world to me," said Quiana Porter, a 25-year-old health care worker who filmed the crew building what on Friday will be her home.
"I have two little ones, and now they will have their own yard. And I'll have my first house," Porter said. Her 500-hour work requirement is finished, but she is still logging Habitat hours. "Whatever I get, I'll donate to someone who's just starting their 500 hours," she said.
The Milwaukee effort is part of a nationwide campaign between the two groups' parent organizations, Habitat for Humanity International and the National Association of Home Builders, to produce about 500 low-cost homes this week.
"This is the biggest building week we've ever had under way," said Steve Tennies, Milwaukee Habitat staff project coordinator. "Now, all the hard work of planning in the last year is paying off. This is a crucial part of our effort in Metcalfe, where there's an obvious need for decent, affordable housing."
Construction crews got an early start - 6:30 a.m. - on a tightly orchestrated schedule condensing the typical 180-day home-building norm into one super work week. But among the early birds greeting a day of glorious sunshine and summer breeze were even earlier birds.
"I pulled up here at a quarter to 5, and there was already a line," said Chellee Siewert, chief operating officer of Metropolitan Builders Association. "People wanted to get going."
Drawn by the hubbub, neighborhood residents peered from porches and windows at the military pace of action. Most kept their distance, but 34th St. resident David Kemp sauntered toward the work sites for a closer look.
"I love it. It's good what they're doing, putting up houses," Kemp said. "That noise don't bother me. I'm an old truck driver myself."
City officials cordoned off N. 32nd to N. 35th streets between W. Clarke St. and W. Meinecke Ave. to allow free rein to nine cranes and several dozen supply trucks. The work force numbered 300-plus at the start.
"Usually, we do one house at a time. Today, we're doing 10, so we'll be moving around a lot," said Linda Heipp, product specialist with Hallmark Building Supplies Inc. in Waukesha. Her company donated the project's house insulation wrap and window flashing.
For Greg Lamberg, supervising a carpentry crew of eight for JFK Builders Inc. of Pewaukee, it qualified as the "extreme building" hyped by TV shows.
"I've got five minutes max" to be interviewed, he said. "We're roughing in (the house frame) now and everyone is working as fast as they can - with no mistakes. This is a challenge, a great challenge."
The project's electricians could commiserate.
"We'll rough in today, and finish tomorrow, and we've got to work fast," said Tim Hanson, director of business development for Local 494 of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers. Eighty-eight union members donated their labor for this project, he reported.
Milwaukee Habitat started revitalization work last year in impoverished Metcalfe Park with five new homes. Typically, the non-profit builds homes using the city's $1-a-lot urban infill land sale program, donor financing and predominantly volunteer crews. This week's homes, however, are professionally built, he noted.
"This is obviously a crucial part of our effort here, since this is a very challenged neighborhood," Tennies said. "With the MBA's help, we expect to have 21 homes here by the end of this year. If we can get more $1 city lots, we'll probably keep going."
Habitat-fashioned homes are modest, in keeping with the organization's "a hand up, not a hand out" motto. Typically 1,100 to 1,200 square feet, they have full basements and front porches, but no garages and only one bathroom each.
That's a big switch for some local builders, who typically work on large, expensive customized residences.
"Better watch me or I'll customize it," joked Andrew Ziebell, vice president of Hickory Hill Homes in Delafield, whose four-person office is pretty much shut down this week for its Habitat commitment.
"It's important to be involved. Our customers understand that," Ziebell said.
His company teamed up with another small, custom builder, Colby Construction Co. Inc. of Delafield, on a single house.
"How do you like that? Competitors join forces," quipped Colby President Pete Feichtmeier. In the months that their trade group has been planning this massive project, Feichtmeier and Ziebell said they've become friends.
Builders were challenged by a project that required a year of team planning and careful timing - in some cases, to the quarter-hour, Moroney said.
"Now our guys can take charge and do what they do best - build homes," Moroney said.
Craig Hampton, a Metcalfe Park resident since 1971, welcomed their presence.
"People in this neighborhood have been disappointed a lot - the unemployment, the low education, the family problems, the killings. This is a good sign, a good thing they're doing, rebuilding here. Maybe society hasn't given up on us after all," Hampton said.
It was fitting that the building blitz started with a prayer, said Karen Lawrence, marketing director for MasterCraft Builders of Kenosha.
"It was important to pray for the safety of our crews - and to get the job done on time," Lawrence said.

MASTERCRAFT BUILDERS READIES FOR SEASONAL BOOM
Spring marks increase in home building
KENOSHA, Wis. - TDB, 2007 - With spring in full bloom, so jump-starts the construction of new homes. MasterCraft Builders, the leading homebuilder in the Kenosha-Racine area, advises individuals to make deliberate, economic and efficient choices before building. Quality, location, design selection and warranty should all be given careful consideration before choosing a builder.
"Many future homeowners are anxious to begin the building process," said Mike Lawrence, General Manager of MasterCraft Builders. "It is essential to work with an experienced builder to ensure every desired aspect of their future home is met."
Laying the groundwork - choosing an experienced builder
Once a family has decided to build a home, the first step is to pick an experienced builder. When choosing a company, look for one that includes all prices and details upfront to avoid hidden costs. You also will want to pick one who utilizes quality products.
"The cheapest price is not always the best deal and the highest price does not always mean the best quality," cautions Lawrence.
It's all about location
When shopping for a builder, it's important to review the properties it has available. Well-established and reputable companies will have a variety of lots to choose from or will assist you in finding one in an area you wish to live. Consider your family's interests, schools, churches, shopping, etc., when choosing your new home's location.
"On average, families will live in a home for seven to ten years," stated Lawrence. "Therefore, it's important to anticipate what your needs - location and space - will be three, four, five years down the road."
Customized for you
One of the joys of building is selecting the type of layout you desire. Most builders offer a variety of plans for a set fee. The standard features provided in each home package vary. Families that wish to customize their homes, should research builders that allow unique modifications.
Lawrence said, "At MasterCraft Builders, not only do we provide numerous home plans, we also allow our customers to make custom changes to fit their individual lifestyles and tastes."
Securing your investment
Building a home is a large investment. One of the best ways to recognize a builder's reliability is in the warranty. This is a testament to the company's confidence in his or her workmanship and chosen materials. Consider what the warranty will cover and remember that regularly scheduled follow-up programs will quickly address any problems that may arise in the future.
