Why us?


Trust, Integrity, over 3 decades of experience.

If you are searching for a remodeling contractor that can provide you with references, examples of completed work, a detailed proposal, a firm fixed price contract and confidence that your vacation home is in trustworthy hands, then call me direct at 262-215-9644 and stop playing the Wisconsin lowballers game which is a low "guestimate" followed by a boat load of extras to actually complete your project.


In house Interior Design Service

   My interior designer Glenna, and wife of 33 years, can assist you in the sometimes overwhelming task of final plan and lay out, material and finishes, lighting, paint color selection, furniture and placement.

   With todays communication technology you dont have to be bothered with these details if you can't be here through out the coarse of the project. Glenna will keep you abreast via email and text so those important design decisions are approved.

   Bonus- Glenna is also a custom mural artist who can make your home truely one of a kind.


Lets be honest.

    There are a lot of contractors that can complete your project. I like to take it a step futher and instill a sense of trust, respect and before we are done, freindship. 

   It's not easy handing a total stranger the keys to your cherished property. That's why I provide a list of references, a copy of my remodeling "Policies and Procedures", an "About Us"  page, and a design agreement at our first meeting. I also hire trust worthy local sub contractors that have performed well over the years. I wont sacrifice quality and trust to save a couple bucks on an unproven sub contractor.

  Like many of my subs in there respective trades, I am a carpenter of 30 plus years, familiar with high end details. That, combined with a interior designer with a great eye, has made Schilthelm Builders the go to company for your vacation home remodel since 1998.

Please give me a call on my cell, 262-215-9644 or email me at and we can make an appointment and go into futher detail. 

Thank you, Scott Schilthelm
