Custom Home Builder in Oshkosh, WI
Dowling Construction Inc. was established in 1985 and is a family-owned and family-oriented business. We have expertise in all phases of construction from the ground up in both residential and commercial construction. We can also assist you with finding that perfect site for your project.
We are now expanding our business and expertise to the custom built modular home market by partnering with Wisconsin Homes & Stratford Homes, two of Wisconsin’s premier modular home manufacturer. Your new home (designed by you or chosen from our many designs) is built inside a controlled environment eliminating the issues of weather conditions. All frame-work is done in jigs so every corner is precise. In the time it takes to get the financing of the project complete, the foundation can be installed and your home ordered and ready to be set. It is very possible to be in your new home in 4 to 10 weeks!
Custom built modular homes are not to be confused with a trailer/mobile home and not all manufactured/modular homes are built the same. Our modular homes are indeed built indoors but are built to meet Wisconsin UDC (Uniform Dwellings Code), not built to the Manufactured Home Construction and Safety Standards (HUD Code) in which mobile homes are built. During the building process, State inspectors come in and do regular inspections of the home in its different stages, the same as a site-built home. In addition to our custom built modular home being built indoors (out of the weather elements), it’s built using 25% more lumber (engineered to be stronger) and is more energy efficient. Also, the appraised value on a Wisconsin Homes custom modular home is the same, and sometimes better, than a typical site-built home.
