Distinctive Custom Homes

Built with pride and precision in South Central Wisconsin

Custom Design-Build Homes

We build stunning custom homes. Work directly with our team to create a home that embodies your aesthetic, from contemporary open-concept plans to traditional multi-level homes and everything in between.

For more than 35 years, our family-owned company has built an impeccable reputation for beautiful, enduring homes. Our hands-on approach and unwavering standards show in every detail.

Count on premium materials and painstaking craftsmanship in every detail, from timber framing and custom woodwork to finishing touches. Our personal oversight, transparent communication, and exceptional service make building your custom dream home enjoyable.

Create your ideal living space, tailor-made for your family and lifestyle.

Custom Homes

Unparalleled Quality Craftsmanship and Service

Every detail, from framing to finishes, aligns with rigorous quality benchmarks. Unlike many other builders, we employ our own framing and finishing carpenters so that we can ensure that the quality of the work on your project lives up to our standards — and yours. The result: a durable, high-performing home built to last for generations.

We not only meet code requirements—we exceed them. This includes oversized structural headers and air exchange systems that provide fresh, clean air year-round. We also recommend top-grade materials like solid-core interior doors designed to perform beautifully for years.

Quality craftsmanship and exceptional customer service are our top priorities. We keep job sites immaculate and treat each project as if it’s our own home. Our owner oversees each job personally from start to finish.

You’ll stay informed throughout the process. If you have questions or a design change, we’re just a phone call away. The result: peace of mind knowing your home is built to exacting standards.

Quality Craftsmanship

Forever Home… Thirty years & 1000 miles in the making!

From our first Spring 2022 meeting, to arriving at our forever home in the Summer of 2024, we have run out of superlatives to describe Matt and his team at Kippley Custom Carpentry. The short list includes genuine and honest, talented and hard-working, conscientious and thoughtful. In a word, exceptional. Read more…

After being away for thirty years, we wanted to move back to our home state of Wisconsin. However, the timing of our jobs required us to navigate the entire home-building process from literally 1000 miles away…seemingly an insurmountable task. However, because of Matt’s capacity to listen, ability to understand our vision, and workmanship of the absolute highest quality, he made this journey a complete joy.

To say we are happy to have worked with Matt is an understatement. Not a day goes by without us saying “Wow… we love this house!”. From every friendly interaction, to countless hours of floor plan design, to the many great ideas throughout the build, and now to the finished product, we have been truly blessed to work with Kippley Custom Carpentry. ‘Exceptional’ is the word, and we unconditionally give him our highest endorsement!

Intricate Custom Woodworking

Let our custom woodwork become a signature touch you’ll enjoy for years. Our skilled craftsmen build custom fireplace mantels, entertainment centers, and custom cabinets. If you have an idea for your home, we can build it.

Sustainable and Energy Efficient

Energy consumption is an important consideration when planning a new home, addition or remodel. Investing in quality installation and sustainability now pays dividends through lower energy costs and maintenance. The homes we build are typically 20 to 30 percent more efficient than standard homes.

We recommend and install high-performance insulation, windows, HVAC systems, moisture control features, and more based on the latest building science.

We are a certified Focus on Energy home builder. We incorporate the Focus on Energy program in all projects, whether it is a new home or a remodel. We keep up-to-date on the newest building materials and techniques.

Our dedicated team makes the process smooth through collaborative design, transparent communication, and start-to-finish guidance. We add extra touches to every project that increase the beauty, comfort and value of your home. We will complete your project on time using the latest building products and techniques, and the latest in energy-efficient technology. You’ll work directly with our owner rather than being assigned a project manager like with some firms.

It begins with you sharing your home dreams, and us listening. Together we’ll create preliminary plans tailored to your aesthetic and lifestyle. With the blueprint complete, our detailed selections process allows you to customize every finish and fixture.

We personally handle contracts and permitting to ensure everything is handled smoothly on the back end. Our strong reputation means we can get started on construction quickly.

Then we start building your Wisconsin custom home with rigorous quality oversight from groundbreaking to handover. We maintain tidy, safe sites and provide regular updates on progress. Our expertise ensures flawless execution of every detail.

Let’s get started building your dream home.

With their knowledge and expertise, the Kippleys were able to fill in the blanks of our home design to perfectly fit our vision. We were impressed with the creativity and thoughtfulness they presented and were very excited about the house design they made for us.
