Great News From Our Franklin & Brookfield Neighborhoods!

Wahlens World Logo Final3 300x300

As we move into the heart of the summer season, there are only three homes left at our neighborhood in Franklin, The Glen at Park Circle. These homes are finished and the lower levels can be tweaked to your liking, but they are completed so people can move in quickly.

We are finding that’s the case right now, as many people are selling their current homes quickly and they need a nice place into which they can move. This would be the perfect opportunity for folks in this situation.

As we review all of our homes in neighborhoods like The Glen at Cedar Creek in Cedarburg, and the ones we are now building in Brookfield at The Glen at Woodside Creek, there are some differences in those we are offering in Franklin with respect to layout.  These homes still feature two split bedrooms, and most homes have a sun room, while others have a sun room and a den just as they do in Brookfield. However, they differ in their exterior look and the elements that we use. We wanted to craft condominium homes that didn’t look exactly the same and it’s worked out well for us.

They look good! You can come out and see for yourself with a personal tour Thursdays through Mondays, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. or by appointment on Mondays and Tuesdays.

Meanwhile in Brookfield at The Glen at Woodside Creek, our first model home has really been jumping, with lots of people streaming in to get their first look! It’s been wildly successful and we already over one-third sold out in this beautiful new neighborhood, with more sales coming. So we are really excited about it.

The Clubhouse is also being built right across the street from our open model and that should be ready this fall. We plan to make a big splash with a Grand Opening at that time.  Next year we will be digging the pool, which should open next year in June. But I’ll tell you, people should come on out to The Glen at Woodside Creek and see all of this for themselves! The model is open Thursdays through Mondays, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. or by appointment on Tuesdays or Wednesdays. So there are opportunities to view this beautiful new neighborhood on any day of the week.

Cornerstone Unveils New Division: Cornerstone Homes 

We have other exciting news to announce, too!  Do you how many times people have said to me over the years, ‘You know John, we really love what you build because you build with high quality.  Can you build on our lot? We’re thinking about building a new home and would like one like this but where we have land.’ Unfortunately, my answer has always been, ‘No.’

Until Now!

We brought in a fabulous guy to run our new division, Cornerstone Homes. His name is Joe Orendorf, and he’s got a background that is perfect of us because he is a single-family custom home builder. He started and ran Joseph Douglas Homes. He was the MBA Builder of the Year in 2015 and he was the MBA president in 2016. So the accolades have come in for him, and when you watch Joe with people and his knowledge of the construction and building industry he’s second to none. He is a total gem, and he’s been such a joy to have on our team. People will really enjoy working with Joe.

Cornerstone Homes is just a nice opportunity for us to build single-family homes where our customers want them. Right now we’re going to be building some models in Waukesha near the new Meijer store on Sunset Drive. We have 12 different styles that we can construct, and many of them are on our website. We are refining a few of the plans and we also have some virtual tours of the styles we build. Joe will work with you from there to take it and make it your home. But the best place to look is online and find our Cornerstone Homes page, where you will also find the floorplans.

Safe Home Tours Available

One final note regarding the safety of our home tours as we continue to cope with the COVID-19 pandemic. When people come for a tour we practice social distancing, we provide masks and we thoroughly wipe down our models even though, quite frankly, people don’t have to touch very much when they enter our models. You can tour a model home and just walk around, staying in distant proximity to those around you and our sales person can answer all of your questions. We offer private and safe tours by all of our sales consultants when our customers want them.

So once again, we look forward to seeing you at The Glen at Woodside Creek, The Glen at Cedar Creek and The Glen at Park Circle. Come on out in person and remember that you can also CHAT with us on our website,

Thank you!
