Dear Nick, Becky Arnie and Tim, You did it! You made our vision become a reality and we couldn’t be more excited to move into our new home. This was our first time building, and though many decisions had to be made, Nick, Becky and Arnie were there guiding us through every step of the way. The quality of workmanship that went in to making our house a home, was just so impressive. Literally each contractor works with so much pride, as though they were building their own home, now that’s a nice feeling! We are so grateful to all of you and cannot wait to entertain and show off your exceptional work in our beautiful home. I’ll be sure to share our experience with many people for years to come. Outstanding job from start to finish. Blessed beyond measure and so happy we found Stortz Custom Homes.
See what our happy customers have to say about their experience with us
Prior to choosing Stortz Custom Homes, we walked through countless new construction homes and had sit down meetings with several other builders. After our first meeting with Nick and Tim, we instantly knew they were going to be the right choice for us! From start to finish, Stortz provided a home building experience with honesty, integrity, great communication, professionalism and extreme attention to detail, all especially important being our first new construction build. Everyone on the Stortz team was easy to get in touch with and quick to respond to any questions that came up. Their team made sure to ask our preferences along the way, including every little detail to ensure we got exactly what we wanted. We built our forever home and Stortz truly turned our dream into a reality! We would certainly recommend Stortz Custom Homes to everyone interested in building a new home! While we envision this being a forever home, if we ever decide to build again, there’s no doubt that Stortz will be our first and only call!
Luke & Kelsey
Dear Tim, Nick & Arnie Thank you is not enough to express our gratitude. Our new home is exactly what we have dreamed of. We are very grateful for all you have done to help make this happen. You all genuinely care about each home and family you build for. Thank you for being a company who stands by your word and product. We already feel at home!
John & Becky
We built our forever home with Stortz in 2020. It was an excellent experience. At every step in the building process, everyone was helpful, communicative, and friendly. Dave and Arnie offered helpful insight in the building process so that our home matched what we envisioned for our family. It is clear that Stortz has found excellent contractors and vendors to help create such high quality workmanship. Becky was great at offering insight and expertise in making finish selections (cabinets, trim, hardware, tile, flooring, etc.) which helped bring everything together into a cohesive dream home. We appreciated that Stortz Custom Builders was very willing to work within a budget, and recognized how important of an investment that this is for their customer. We now have a beautiful home, and even our neighbors have been very complementary of Stortz’s professionalism. We would highly recommend using Stortz for any build, and are very happy with our experience.

My Husband and I built our forever home with Stortz Custom Homes in 2018. This was my first time building and my husband’s second time. I wasn’t sure what to expect when it came to taking on this huge project in our lives and we definitely wanted to make sure that we chose the right builder for us. If you know anyone who has built before, there are always stories to tell. We heard a lot of horror stories from friends and coworkers in regards to their builders and their experiences. We were definitely skeptical, to say the least when we shopped around. We asked a lot of questions and received a lot of pointers. But in the end, the decision of who to partner up with for our family’s big project was ours. Our perfect builder would keep us involved 100% of the time. They would allow us to do some of the personal things we wanted to do within our home during the process with consideration to schedules. They would listen to concerns or questions we had and would make sure we completely understood the answers. They would keep in contact with us every day. Keep us posted and would let us know what the contractors schedules looked like. Would assist us in choosing things like cabinets, doors, and colors as needed. Would thoroughly discuss changes that would come up during the build and make certain we understood the implication of that change on both a time line and a financial aspect. Our perfect builder would understand “custom” and knew that we weren’t looking for a cookie cutter type of home. They would assist us with the millions of decisions that needed to be made and kept us grounded when it came to costs. They would be skilled in all that they do and extremely knowledgeable in the home building process. Would recognize mistakes (because they happen no matter who you build with) but jump all over it to make it right. Stortz Custom Homes was every one of those things that we were looking for. And they did not disappoint. Building can be a stressful time for any family, no matter who you build with. In our case, we were displaced the entire time we built so when Stortz Custom Homes had us in our new home in 5 months, we were beyond pleased. We tell that story today and people are shocked to know that our build went that quickly. I recommend Stortz Custom Homes to everyone who asks. With social media now, it’s easy to have a network of followers, family, friends & coworkers, who are just as excited as you are to watch your dream become a reality. Stortz Custom Homes and all of their contractors did that for us and we will be forever grateful. We recommend them for all of your designing and building needs and wouldn’t hesitate to use them again. Thanks to Tim, Nick, Dave, Arnie & Becky. Each of you made our dream come true and we are beyond blessed to have worked with you to achieve it.
dave & brenda
To Dave, Arnie, Becky, Nick, and Tim. Thank you! You made this experience one that I will always look back at so positively. I will forever be appreciative of all of your hard work in making my dream a reality. You made this my HOME, not my house. Being a first-time home builder can be an incredibly overwhelming experience when you start to realistically think through what you want your dream home to be. The team at Stortz Custom homes quickly ruled out any concerns I may have had through the process. From the first time I made contact with Dave I could tell he was going to be a genuine and honest person to work with which can be very hard to find in the building community. Shortly thereafter I was introduced to the rest of the Stortz team of Tim, Nick, Becky, and Arnie as we began to put my ideas to paper on what I wanted my home to be. It was truly a relief to work with a team that had your best interests in mind asking lots of questions as to what I wanted in this build and not telling me what had to be in this build. As we progressed from the office to the job site, I was kept well informed of the progress. Whenever I had a question, I could make one call and get an immediate answer. The attention to detail and the quality of craftsmanship showed through the entire project as well which has stood out to anyone that has seen their work. As we neared completion, I was amazed by how smoothly the process went which left my family and friends stunned because you never hear about a house being built without a few horror stories along the way. Which I can proudly say there were none! When others ask if I were to do it again would I choose the same builder and their question has always triggered an immediate “YES” from me. To say you would do it all over again with the same team, in my opinion, is the best review you can give to a builder. I will always recommend Stortz to others and share with them my experience.
We were so impressed with Dave, Becky and Stortz Custom Homes for our remodeling of two bathrooms, kitchen and laundry room. All contractors were very helpful, gave us great suggestions and their work was outstanding! The built in cabinets were custom built and matched our existing cabinets beautifully! The lights and the tile work were awesome as well. We couldn’t be more satisfied with everyone’s work! We would definitely recommend Stortz Homes to anyone!
Randy & Pam
Hi Dave, I also wanted to thank you and Stortz for our beautiful new kitchen! You took our old 1980s style, tired, worn, outdated, dysfunctional space and made our vision for a stylish, updated, functional kitchen happen, in the middle of a pandemic, no less! We are looking forward to cooking, relaxing and sharing the space with family and friends for many years to come and have already gotten lots of compliments. Thanks again for the good experience – we’re glad we chose you and Stortz.
jill & rick
We had neighbors over who have walked through and are in awww Of the quality and craftsmanship of our home! Our parents both were here tonight for supper and are so happy and proud for us that we are in such a beautiful home! We would love to invite you all over for a BBQ and fire if your would Like to see how we have made this home our forever home! Kevin would also like Sarah Koch over at this time as she is the one who lead us to your amazing company! Thanks again for EVERYTHING!
Kim & Kevin
This is the second build with Stortz for me. I trust them to do great work, on time and within budget, and they do not disappoint! Once again, the quality work for a better price than other builders. I’m so pleased with my new home, and would not hesitate to use them again.
About the time we were talking about remodeling a bathroom and finishing a room in the basement, the Washington County Home Show was approaching. We decided to go and are so glad that we did. This is where we met you and heard what Stortz Custom Homes could bring to the table for us. We were excited and nervous about undertaking this project. But with your guidance and talented subcontractors we couldn’t be happier with our newly remodeled spaces. The final design and execution is even better than we anticipated due to your input and suggestions from each of the subcontractors. Thank you!
chuck & cindy
I’ve always believed that there is a difference between a house and a home. A home is the place that everyone wants to come and spend time at and a house is just a place to live. Building my dream home has been one of my goals for many years and as I get closer to retirement I decided it was time to start fulfilling that dream. But finding a builder that will do what you want and not want to put you in one of their designs to stay away from building everything custom is not easy until you deal with the Stortz brothers. They made this process so easy and encourage you to make sure that what they are doing is what YOU want, not what is easiest for them. They bring in the best craftsmen to do the work and personally monitor what is happening. Their site manager Arnie and designer Becky are fantastic and just as patient as the owners. I love my new home and sometimes I still need to pinch myself to prove that it is really all mine and I wouldn’t change a thing. So if you have a dream to build a home, go see these guys, they are the real deal. I can assure you that Tim and Nick will make your dreams come true just like they did for me!
We just wanted to send a note to tell you how much we appreciated the remodel of our basement. We went to our local home show and to our delight we met Dave Spooner, who put our ideas into motion. It’s amazing to see how far our basement has come in just a few months. Dave Spooner was great to work with. He always returned our calls usually in a matter of minutes. He was attentive to all our needs and kept us up-to-date on the contractors schedule. Dave you are the best! We thought all your subcontractors did excellent work; the top of their craft…..Overall we would say excellent job and we would highly recommend Stortz Custom Homes
ken & ruth
I am writing this letter as my basement remodel with Stortz Custom Homes has been concluded. I wanted to share with you that I felt that my contractor Dave Spooner and the professional nature of the contractors was exceptional. Dave never made me feel pressured and when needed, explained each series of the project. He especially encouraged me in ways to help keep my finished home free of dust from the project. The contractors on this job were clearly experienced and politely professional. They were not subcontracted out being strangers to each other. They were all versed in their trade – not seasonal help(which is a big deal!) None were a subcontract of a sub contract,which allows the contractors to make as much money off the owners and untrained staff as possible always producing less than grade A product and then to disappear into the wind when you try to contact them or say I would need to call some guy I never met.. sorry that’s a big soap box for me; I hate that! I will share my positive experience with Stortz contractors when other need a builder! Thank you very much
tim & Kathy
It’s been a real pleasure working with Dave and the entire Stortz team. They did an incredible job on our basement, we’re getting tons of compliments! The project was completed on time and on budget as well. We’d definitely recommend Stortz Custom Homes for new homes or remodels and will certainly use them again!
heath & heidi
We are overjoyed with how beautiful our home turned out! We embarked upon the journey of building a new home as complete novices and sought out to find a builder whom we could trust to be patient with us and guide us through the process. Stortz delivered on this in spades. From helping us create the custom design, to working with Tim and Nick during the bid process, to working with Arnie their expediter and Becky their designer; everyone at Stortz made helping us build our dream home their top priority. If we were to build again tomorrow there is no question on which builder we would choose.
patrick & jenny
People say that building a house is one of the most stressful experiences they’ve ever had; with Stortz Custom Homes this could not be further from the truth. Not only was our experience stress free, it was actually fun! From start to finish the professionals at Stortz provided a clear and concise plan for us to build our family’s “forever home”. They were always available to answer questions and accommodate our needs; transparency in the building process allowed us to enjoy the experience and the result was our dream come true. From quality of work to budget to timeline, they exceeded our expectations at every turn. My husband and I will continue to recommend Stortz Custom Homes – this is builder you can trust with your dream home!
shane & tricia
We are so excited to be in our new home! The process of building went smooth from start to finish. Watching the stages of our home’s construction was so fun and exciting. Stortz Custom Homes kept us informed about each stage of building with photos and postings to the website as well as a personal liaison to assist in the selections of everything for our home. We found their contractors to be friendly, professional with much attention being paid to detail. We have now begun the process of building our detached garage!! If we build again, it would be with Stortz Custom Homes
gary & dianne
We looked into numerous builders before speaking with Stortz Custom Homes. Speaking directly with Nick & Tim was a great experience. We appreciated their up front and honest approach to our questions about building. Their all in pricing with a “no games” attitude caught our attention! The whole process surprisingly went extremely smooth, we’ve heard other builder horror stories. Selections were a breeze and we appreciated the designers input. It was a surreal reality watching our plans and ideas become a “Home”! During this process any questions, concerns, changes and such were handled promptly. Their expediter was a pleasure to work with, and always listened. We couldn’t of asked for a better building experience, and would gladly do it all over again. Thanks for building us a beautiful home!
tom & roma
Most simply stated, Stortz Custom Homes provides AMAZING customer service! From day one, they were responsive, attentive and extremely personable. We felt after our first meeting with them that they were people we could trust and we’re very glad we did. Our new house turned out better than we imagined and nearly a month ahead of their promised schedule. We’re still in awe that our custom house was built in 4.5 months! They addressed all questions, concerns and issues quickly, followed through on their promises and ultimately built the perfect home for us! We can’t thank Stortz Custom Homes and all of the wonderful contractors they had working for them enough. We love our new home and highly recommend Stortz Custom Homes to anyone looking at building!
jeremy & jessica
Making custom dream homes a reality! When it came time to build our second home we knew exactly what we wanted and learned a lot from our first home building experience. We completed endless hours of research and flipped through thousands of floor plans but just couldn’t find what we were dreaming of. Knowing we weren’t ready to settle we reached out to Stortz Custom Homes in hopes of making our dreams a reality. We were surprised to learn “custom” didn’t have to mean time consuming and anything truly was a possibility. Unlike other builders, we really felt like we were partnering to create a unique home full of quality details and exceptional features exactly the way we envisioned. From the design to the construction, communication and expectations were seamless. Not only were our expectations met, they were blown away! The level of professionalism and customer service that was experienced during our build was beyond amazing. We will absolutely recommend Stortz Custom Homes to our friends & family and look forward to working together again once we are ready to finish our basement. Our home is absolutely one of a kind and no longer a dream…..all thanks to the hard-work, expertise, and dedication of Stortz Custom Homes! Thank you Tim & Nick!
jason & theresa
As customers that had never owned a home and knew nothing about the building process, regulations or level of involvement required, building with Stortz was easy with guidance provided for every step of the process. We had a very specific vision for our home and needed to be sure we could stay within our budget. Stortz was great about making sure that our final price had all our wants and needs included prior to us breaking ground. There were no surprises and everything was very well communicated. Our lender was extremely complimentary of Nick’s organization and the information provided throughout the process.
adam & jamie
Building with Stortz was a great experience. Your team of professionals made the building process stress-free and the quality of work cannot be surpassed. Thank you for everything. Best regards.
tom & Judy
Building a home can be an overwhelming and stressful process. But as we found out very quickly, this is NOT the case when building with Stortz Custom Homes. Working with Tim, Nick, Arnie, Becky and all of their subcontractors was a very pleasant experience from our first meeting to our final walk-thru. Everyone was friendly, professional, organized and prompt which led to a stress free and enjoyable building experience. When asked if we would use Stortz Custom Homes again, our response is always….in a heartbeat!
tim & mary
We chose Stortz Custom Homes because we knew they were a builder we could trust. During the planning stage they were patient and very low-pressure, but when we were ready to build they moved very quickly. Anytime questions, changes, or issues came up they were quickly addressed and there were never any surprises. In our case, we came in under budget and the home was completed ahead of our expectations. We highly recommend Stortz Custom Homes and can’t imagine building with anyone else.
brad & kristen
We loved building with Stortz Custom Homes. They were easy to work with and communicated effectively with us throughout the process. They were attentive to our needs and their follow through was incredible. Becky, Stortz’s designer, helped to reduce the stress of picking out items for our home and Arnie managed the process every step along the way. We felt confident about every selection that we made for our home because of the knowledge of the Stortz team. If we build again, we will most certainly use Stortz Custom Homes.
todd & lisa
Working with Tim & Nick was the right decision from the first day that we meet them. During our first initial meeting, they took the time to listen and show us a variety of ideas that would work for what we were looking for in our custom home. The quality communication continued throughout the process not only from Tim & Nick, but while making selections with Becky and working with Arnie on the timeline of our home. During the entire process, our questions were answered in a timely manner and Stortz Custom Homes made the building process an enjoyable one for our family. We are excited to be living in the home they helped bring to fruition.
tim & jill
Our new home turned out better than we could have ever hoped. The way Nick was able to take our wish list and fit it into one house plan was amazing. We were nervous about having to make all the decision involved in building a home, but the way they laid everything out it in our binder made it a breeze. No matter how many times we had questions, or the when there were surprise issues, the team at Stortz was there with an answer or solution. We truly enjoyed working with the team at Stortz and all the contractors that came through our home. Our home will be the perfect place to raise our 4 kids. We don’t see why we would ever want to leave this home, but if we did, Stortz Custom Homes would be our first call to build the next one.
mike & shannon
Our biggest concern when selecting a builder was finding an organization ran by people we could trust. We knew from our very first meeting with Tim & Nick, that these were hard-working and very customer-centric people committed to helping us make a smart and fiscally responsible decision. They were less concerned about what they provided and focused more on what we wanted down to the very last detail. Stortz Custom homes exceeded our expectations. They are incredibly organized, detail oriented, flexible, and most importantly – people that we trusted throughout the entire building process. We could not be more happy with Tim, Nick, and the rest of their organization who gave us everything we asked for and much more. We would recommend them in a heart-beat to anyone that needs a builder.
bryan & suzanne
Building a home can be a very stressful undertaking however with the help of Nick, Tim and Nick R it was a very easy and exciting process. During the entire process they were there for us with any of our questions and were quick to provide answers and provided daily updates for us. Dealing with the owners of a great company like Stortz Custom Homes has many benefits and made us feel at ease. We hope to never build again (as we absolutely love our home) however if we were to build again we would instantly chose Stortz Custom Homes again! Thank you for all of your help and a beautiful finished product we will love for years to come. We couldn’t have picked a better company to build with!
chuck & amy
Nick, Tim and Nick R. were very easy to work with. The quality of workmanship and materials was very good. If you are looking at building a custom home we would recommend Stortz Custom Homes.
jack & llona
This was the first home we had ever built and to say that we were nervous about choosing the right builder would be an understatement. When we met with Nick and Tim, we “clicked” right away, and they made us feel like the most important part of the process from beginning to end. We felt comfortable that we could ask questions at any time, and always received a prompt response. Stortz Custom Homes took the house in our heads to paper, and then to reality. Our home is high quality and beautiful. We would recommend Nick and Tim without reservation.
dave & lisa
Stortz Custom Homes built the house of our dreams. We had never had a home built before and we had heard how stressful the process was. With Tim & Nick, we enjoyed our experience from beginning to end. We are very happy we built with Stortz.
charmaine & terry
Building our home with Nick and Tim was fantastic! I am in the building industry myself working with builders and contractors daily and can say with confidence that the staff at Stortz Custom Homes are among the very best I have ever dealt with! Building a one of a kind, custom home is not an easy task and often comes with challenges along the way but Stortz Custom Homes made it look easy. The level of comfort, communication, and trust we had with them was second to none and we were glad to have chosen them for our project. We continually recommend Stortz to all we can. After seeing our home built, we have had family members start building their new home with Stortz as well.
chad & tanya
Stortz Custom Homes exceeded my expectations. They were always accessible to answer my questions; they were very pleasant and professional, and they always kept me up-to-date on what was happening. I felt very comfortable associating with them, and I was very happy with the final results. Thanks again for making this a wonderful experience!
We absolutely love our Stortz Custom Home. Our one regret was wasting a couple months talking with other builders before talking with Nick and Tim. The contractors were absolutely first class and the work performed was second to none. We cannot begin to describe the feeling we had when the house was completed and it turned out even better than we had imagined. These guys truly do make your home dreams come true
Jeff & Michelle
We’ve relocated many times and built previous homes throughout WI. From the first time we met Nick and Tim, we felt at ease and knew their commitment would be second to none! From our numerous planning sessions, thru all phases of construction, to finishing under budget and the ultimate customer service shown at the final one year walk-thru, we have been extremely pleased. We even recommended Stortz Custom Homes LLC, to others looking to build well before our project was completed! Nick exceeded our expectations in customer service, communication, responsiveness, attention to detail and superior demand for the highest quality throughout our entire process. We are very proud and pleased to be part of their “building family
rob & sherri
This was the third home we have built and building with Stortz Custom Homes could not have been smoother! Their attention to customer service, detail and quality was second to none all at the same time of offering great pricing!
scott & misty
We are delighted we chose Nick and Tim to build our house. They listened to our thoughts and ideas and turned them into the home of our dreams. The construction process went smoothly and the contractors were a pleasure to work with. We were so very pleased with the building process and know we have a superior quality home. Nick and Tim and the entire Stortz crew were the nicest people to work with. We couldn’t be happier and we can’t thank them enough!
don & lori
We absolutely love our new home! Nick and Tim and all of their contractors were a joy to work with. From the architect to the finishing touches, they made our contemporary style come to life and there was nothing they wouldn’t try for us. We received professional and friendly service at every step of the process, and they continue to check in with us even now, after we moved in. We are so glad we chose Stortz Custom Homes as our builder!!
matthew & nicole
Stortz Custom Homes made a dream on paper become a reality with building a quality, exceptional home. Nick and his team provided superior service throughout the building process which was pretty simple and enjoyable. I am very happy with my home and wouldn’t hesitate to build another one with Stortz Custom Homes.
We can’t say enough wonderful things about the house that Stortz Custom Homes built for us or about Nick and Tim. From the first time we met, we felt that they were as invested in our dream as we were. Having built with a “cookie-cutter” builder before, the difference with Stortz Custom Homes was night and day. Our phone calls were answered immediately and we were able to fully enjoy the process of watching our house go from a pencil sketch to a showplace. There were no issues bigger than a hiccup in the process and even that was handled with efficiency and grace. We are proud to say that our home was constructed by Stortz Custom Homes and to count Nick and Tim among our friends. We don’t plan to leave our dream home but if we did, we would never build with anyone else.
tom & michelle
e would recommend the Stortz team to anyone who is looking to remodel their home. Tim and Nick were reliable builders who kept us informed every step of the way. Friends and family who have seen our finished basement have been impressed with quality of the craftsmanship.
dave & debbie
Stortz Custom Homes built us the home of our dreams. They helped us customize the home to fit our needs and also added in several nice finishing touches. They completed the build on time, within our budget, and better than we expected. Tim and Nick were always there for us to answer any questions we had and help us through the process. We couldn’t have found a better builder to build our home.
paul & jen
After having gone thru our extensive remodeling project,we are very pleased we chose to go with Stortz Custom Homes. All the different tradesmen that were in our house were very professional and great to work with. If we were ever to build a new home, Tim and Nick Stortz would be the ones doing it. It was a pleasure working with you guys.
aj & karin
We searched and shopped around for a builder we felt we could trust. Tim & Nick are truly great builders, and even better people. Their communication and effort were fantastic.
mike & Kim
Stortz Custom Homes, LLC was refreshing to work with. We always felt like we were kept in the “loop” on all phases of our new home. We are extremely happy that we chose to work with this builder.
al & tina
Nick & Tim Stortz made our dreams come true. From the great communication, to the only 4 MONTHS it took to build our home, to the great product that was built, they truly did deliver.
scott & kristen
We have built “2” homes with Tim & Nick, and both times it was a very rewarding experience. We dealt directly with the owners, and felt that we could talk to them about anything during the process. At the end of the construction of our home, to our surprise we had money left over in our construction loan account. They actually came in under the contract price.
