Bernie Wiese has been in the construction industry for more nearly 25 years. But his passion for building dates even farther back – starting when he was just a kid. What began as a dream quickly grew into reality when Bernie graduated with a degree in architecture. After working 10 years in the office side of the business, Bernie traded his tie for a tool belt. “I realized I was in the wrong area of the business. I’m more of an outdoors person, more hands-on. An office job just wasn’t for me.”
By working hand-in-hand with his talented father-in-law, Bernie gained all the knowledge and experience he would need to start his own business. In 1997 he did just that, fulfilling his lifelong dream. Bernie loves “designing, building and seeing the house through from start to finish. I usually start with a piece of scratch paper and begin drawing rooms. It all begins there.” One of Bernie’s greatest passions is working with his customers. “Some of the most creative ideas come from my clients – all of them live their lives differently and have different ideas about how they want their home to function and layout. Each home is truly custom and unique because each customer has their own individual style.”
While over 90% of Bernie’s homes are custom built, he does offer a variety of popular plans for customers to choose from. “Some folks prefer to start with plans and then add their own special touches.” Either way, customers will find Bernie available night and day to answer questions and discuss their wishes and needs. “I love what I do and want my customers to be happy.”
While Bernie is committed to his job, he’s just as devoted to his family of six. With four boys, he and his wife Tricia stay grounded – and busy. As much as he works, Bernie still finds time to help out with his family’s extra-curricular activities and support community events. On top of all that, he supports his favorite local teams whenever he can…Roncalli Catholic Crimson Pride, the Nebraska Huskers, Creighton Jays and the UNO Mavericks.
