The Winter’s Custom Homes name is at the forefront of the local custom home industry, truly making them the distinctive home builder of the Big Bay de Noc area in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.

With a meticulous eye for detail and a passion for helping people obtain their dreams, Denny and Jeff have become two of the most well-respected builders in the area. The Winter’s Custom Homes reputation was created quite simply through quality craftsmanship and homeowner satisfaction.

As a result of their extreme commitment to quality and reputation, Winter’s Custom Homes advertises only through word of mouth and commits to just “BUILDING THEM ONE AT A TIME”. This allows the builders to dedicate as much time as needed to the homeowner making it as enjoyable and worry free as possible.

The company was formed in the late 40’s by Denny’s Dad, Virgel “Bud” Winter. Denny learned the craft from his Dad during his high school years and joined the Company in 1968 after his tour in Viet-Nam as a carpenter. Each of his 4 children worked with him during their summers off from school until they graduated from college. Jeff joined the company in 1996 after marriage to our daughter Paula.
