JNCH Process


When Jeff Nelson graduated from college with a degree in Architecture, he knew residential design and construction would be his calling. While working for a downtown Milwaukee architectural firm for a few years, he found inspiration during his free time, from the custom homes and design of homes along Lake Michigan and in the Lake Geneva area. He spent several years working for a Waukesha County Lake Country area builder and in 1998 founded Jeffree Nelson Custom Homes. Jeff takes great pride in placing his name on the company and on every home he builds.

After years of building a team of skilled craftsman and quality vendors and building award winning homes, Jeff and his team has repeatedly proven its skills by creating homes tailored to each individual owner’s lifestyle. From the initial stages of design and construction through the completion and past the warranty period, customers find Jeff and his professionals are there to meet their needs.



As Jeff says, “It’s a common sense approach of treating people the way you want to be treated.”

Jeff typically personally designs each home or he will offer his feedback to your architect if that is your direction. A tremendous amount of time, thought, and diligence is invested in each project. Clients work directly with Jeff to incorporate your personal ideas and lifestyle needs into the design process. The experience of building so many other custom homes will allow you to meet your needs and budget. Once the design is customized to the client’s needs it will enter the bid process to help eliminate surprises of what is included in your home. We are then ready to create a finished residence with high quality products and the owner’s unique taste in mind.

The building process is well planned and offers a streamlined schedule to follow along the way. Your one on one communication will be almost daily with Jeff, who helps streamline the communication between you and subcontractor. Jeff’s interior design talent and years of passion in custom home building will allow your selection process to be rewarding and enjoyable.
