What Our Customers Say

Reiland Home

“After seeing Mike’s work and meeting with him a few times, we were absolutely convinced that we wanted him to build our home for us. We believe the thing that sets Mike’s Custom Homes apart from other builders is his attention to detail and his commitment to quality craftsmanship. Literally thousands of people toured our home in this year’s Parade of Homes. Many commented over and over about the outstanding workmanship put into our home. Friends, family, subcontractors – even strangers tell us that we were fortunate to find such a high quality builder who listened to our ideas and made our dream house become a reality. But no one is more impressed than us! Word of the high standard Mike has in building homes has spread in the area. We feel lucky to have had Mike build our home when he did, because we know that there will be an increase in the demand for this business in the years to come.”
Dan & Barb Reiland – Eau Claire, WI

Terski House

“The quality of our new home was obvious from day one when we received our first load of building materials. But what really impressed us most was Mike’s attention to even the smallest details and his constant focus on “our vision”. He was always one step ahead!”
Christ & Sue Terski – Colfax, WI

Terski House

“It is our distinct pleasure to recommend Mike Marthaler and Mike’s Custom Homes to anyone looking to build a high quality, custom home. Mike did an excellent job of planning and building our home. He took the necessary time upfront to thoroughly plan, review and revise our blueprints to arrive at a floor plan that met our needs and lifestyle. He kept us well informed throughout the entire project and the communication was outstanding.

We had the experience of building three homes before we met Mike(two homes in the Twin Cities and one home in Colorado). There was no comparison between the experience we had with Mike and the other contractors we worked with in the past. Mikes’ attention to detail, communication skills, quality of work and thoroughness were outstanding. When we moved into our new home, everything was completed. There was no “punch list” of items that still needed to be finished after closing. We cannot say the same for any of our previous builders.

Mike and his team were an absolute joy to work with. Everyone was very courteous, friendly and professional. We have never worked with a better crew and we were very impressed! Our home is more beautiful than we imagined, and we could not be happier. If you are interested in seeing our home, please do not hesitate to ask. We are happy to show it off and share our experience.”
Donna Murr & Tom Tio – Eau Claire, WI

Hansen Staircase

“Mike’s Custom Homes recently built our new home. We selected Mike based on his fine reputation and also upon the professional relationship he has established with the building industry here in the Eau Claire area. This being a home we designed ourselves to reflect our European backgrounds required many custom built-ins, unique details and specialized trims. With Mike’s knowledge and experience we were able to rely on him to help us fine tune our plans and offer expert advice throughout the process. Mike communicated a sense of trust – in that we felt that he had our best interests in mind. We are pleased to offer an exceptional recommendation for Mike and the entire Mike’s Custom Homes crew!”
John & Alice Hansen – Fall Creek, WI

Hehli Fireplace

“We were fortunate to find Mike Marthaler, and Mike’s Custom Homes when we decided to build our new log home. He was extremely helpful during the entire building process – from the early sketches at our dining room table until the last coat of stain was applied and the project was completed. Mike’s creativity and structural knowledge combined with his craftsmanship are very evident in our home. His integrity and work ethic are to be commended! Working with Mike was a real pleasure and we would highly recommend him for all your home building needs.”
Mary and David Hehli – Strum, WI

Byrd kitchen

“We are so thrilled to have had Mike’s Custom Homes for our project! When we first decided to remodel and add on to our timber peg home, we knew it would be a challenge. We needed a custom builder that would be able to keep with the log feel of our home while changing the kitchen to a much more modern, functional and beautiful kitchen. Mike’s Custom Homes and Mike Marthaler were able to do that and more. From the design to the actual remodel which included adding on a section of house, new garage and the new kitchen, the process was very easy.

Mike’s crew became like a part of our family during the time they were building the home. We trusted them implicitly and felt very comfortable with them. They were exceptionally professional! They worked with us to keep our kitchen functioning as long as possible (very important for a family of 5) and then finished the kitchen in a very timely manner. The end result was more than we had expected and it is beautiful. Mike even made a custom bench and coat rack for our mud room and it is gorgeous! We are just loving all of it!! If we were ever to leave this beautiful home and build, there would be no doubt we would use Mike and his crew again.”
Jane and Steve Byrd – Chippewa Falls, WI

Kapla Exterior

“Mike is one of the premier custom home builders in the Chippewa Valley. We had visited many of his parade homes throughout the years and were very impressed with his craftsmanship. After we decided to build our home, Mike was at the top of our list. He was excellent to work with and met with us on numerous occasions in order to keep the project on track. He also made sure that everything was done to our satisfaction. If any changes needed to be made, he was very flexible and his ultimate concern was for us to be happy with the final outcome.
We would highly recommend Mike to anyone considering building their dream home. All of the subcontractors that worked on our home could not say enough good things about the quality of Mike’s homes. We totally agree with them. He really is second to none!”
