Bernie Wiese has been in the construction industry
for over 18 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.
Now, armed with a full-time crew of eight, Bernie’s
company, Millennium Homes, designs and builds 12 to 15
houses per year. 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, all under the age of seven, 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, such as the annual Walk for Juvenile Diabetes.
On top of all that, he supports his favorite local teams
whenever he can…the Huskers and the Mavericks.
Passion. Commitment. Dedication and Integrity. Just a
few of the words that describe Bernie’s philosophy – at
work, home and at play. Call today for a free
consultation. No obligations. Just great
conversation…and the inspiration you need to start
building the home of you dreams.
