Following several years of designing and building custom homes, Deron Butler founded Joseph Douglas Homes in 1998. Serving as the principal architect, Joseph Douglas Homes has built over 400 homes in Southeast, WI, and has taken pride in each and every design. Whether it is the building a custom home or a personalizing one of our portfolio homes, Joseph Douglas Homes is the Milwaukee home builder that is setting the standard when it comes to simplifying the home building process.

Working directly with customers, Joseph Douglas Homes provides: custom floor plans, guaranteed pricing (site improvement costs are fixed), complete base pricing (all inclusive of both what you need and what you want in your new home), and interior decorating assistance for selections. There is a very clear reason for why Joseph Douglas Homes is an award-winning home builder in the Milwaukee area, as homeowners visions are brought to life through superior design, quality craftsmanship, and great prices.  Joseph Douglas Homes recently placed 2nd in the nation in homeowner satisfaction and received a coveted NRS Award (the “JD Powers” award equivalent for home builders).

Deron Butler has lent his design expertise to the remodeling side of the business. Joseph Douglas Homes and Remodeling also completes additions to existing homes, finishes basements and lower levels, and renovates kitchens and baths.
