Design Build – We work with a couple of local architects to take your conceptual ideas and turn them into a working plan for the construction of your project. With a design build program, the builder and the architect work together to develop a plan to accomplish your goals. The architect develops the clients’ ideas into a plan and the builder has the ability to check to see whether the plan can be accomplished within the clients’ budget throughout the process. This process insures that the final design is within the clients’ budget.

Whole Home Construction – We have the resources to complete a project from excavation to the final nail. Flemington Construction builds quality homes and structures in Northwest Indiana and Southwest Michigan. We have built in the sand dunes by the beach, in the rolling wooded hills and in the grassy prairie. Our focus is on accomplishing  our clients’ goals and meeting their quality expectations. From playhouses to pool houses to custom designed homes, we never compromise on the integrity of the structure. We believe that if it is worth building, it is worth building to last. We can use your plans or we have the capability to help you design your project.

Remodeling – In a lot of cases, working with a clients existing structure is the best way to improve their habitat. Whether it is an addition, a simple bathroom remodel or a complete overhaul, we can help make your vision a reality. We have raised roofs, added 2nd  stories, removed walls to open up spaces, added porches and decks and fireplaces and completely gutted houses and started over. If it’s a challenge, we love it. Some things are difficult but very little is impossible.

Outdoor Living – Creating unique outdoor living spaces for our clients’ is always fun. Decks, patios and screened porches add to the enjoyment of your living space. Each site and each client’s needs are different. We strive to create an outdoor living space that is perfect for you. We recently added a second story deck to an existing house that gave them a beautiful view of Lake Michigan.
