Could not have asked for a better experience!! Having recently purchased our first home, my husband and I considered ourselves fairly naïve to the renovation process. After a so-so experience with another company, we looked to Cream City Construction to guide us in our endeavors – And we haven’t looked back since!
Jim has been a joy to work with - Thorough, patient, present, readily available, answering questions we didn’t know we had. His ability to both appreciate our values and perceive our vision has been remarkable.
Looking forward to working with Cream City again soon!”

Cream City Construction did an excellent job with our Bathroom remodel. Both owners are very professional, well organized, detail oriented that will always make sure you are beyond satisfied with the project. They diligently manage and present professional sub contractors and make sure they are completing their jobs on time and with the highest quality. If there were surprises or concerns, they worked with with us for quick resolution that satisfied our needs both in cost and quality.
The quality of the work, the professionalism and dedication to our project is why we would definitely recommend Cream City Construction and use them in our next remodel.

Cream City Construction is the best! The quality of their work and the attention to detail is superb. Renovating a 100+ year hold home always comes with a few surprises, and Cream City Construction worked their way through any issues without missing a beat. The communication was great, they were on site when they said they'd be and we finished on time and on budget! Jim listened to my vision, understood my vision, made it happen and I now have the kitchen of my dreams. I would strongly recommend Cream City Construction to anyone looking to renovate or remodel. Professional, dependable and personable owners that provide outstanding service with spectacular results.

We have used Cream City for two complete remodel projects. Both times we were thrilled with the outcome. Jim, Todd and their team of contractors are highly professional, honor their contracts, are timely, budget conscience, respectful and have excellent communication. If you are looking for a contractor that will finish a project on budget, on time and with a very high quality end product, you won't make a mistake with Cream City.

How is the space working out after all
these years! It is the best. No joke, every person who enters is amazed. It is both an intimate and a party space. The bar is perfect, there when needed, unobtrusive when not. Innumerable gatherings have ensued, large and small. The view is to die for. I really can’t think of anything I would change.

Just wanted to pass on a Merry Christmas to all of you and your spouses. Also wanted to share that we had a Christmas party this past weekend with ~40 friends. Not only was the house easily able to accommodate that many without feeling crowded, the accolades on your design were over the top! Comments such as "this could be in a magazine", "you must have had a professional designer", "how did you find that much space", and lastly, and often heard, "who was your builder?" were the buzz of the night. Thanks again for all your hard work, and have a wonderful holiday and happy new year.

Cream City Construction did a fantastic job of remodeling our bathroom. We wanted a transitional style bathroom that would flow beautifully with our 1930's home. We also didn't want to spend hours searching for ideas and products. Jim Grote from Cream City came to us with the knowledge and design that made us feel comfortable right from the start. Everything ran smoothly. Cream City kept our project on schedule and within our budget. Their sub-contractors were highly skilled, courteous and on time. They also did a great job of protecting the areas of our home around the construction and had meticulous clean up. Additionally, we really appreciated the ongoing level of communication throughout the project. We will definitely use Cream City Construction for our next project.

I hired this firm to do a full renovation of my family room, powder room and kitchen last summer. They did a great job. I live in a 1927 home that is the home I grew up in. The kitchen was last updated (except some cosmetic work) in 1961 when my parents bought the home. I wanted a functional kitchen that opened into the family room, while staying within the footprint of the home and keeping the same aesthetic of the rest of the house.
To say that I am pleased is an understatement. The group was friendly, professional, fun, and gave me the end result that is more than I had hoped for.
I will use them in the future for other projects.

Jim Grote with Cream City just completed our bathroom makeover. We recently moved into a 1930 home with a leaking shower. The existing plumbing could not be repaired but we did not want to go through a demo and lose the original tile work. Jim was able to come up with a creative solution to replace the plumbing, without sacrificing the tile. We were also incredibly pleased with his ideas to update the vanity, lights, and shower doors. It's the best of both worlds. Our bathroom is vintage, beautiful, and completely functional. A great experience all around. Jim is very responsive and easy to work with. He truly is concerned with his clients' happiness!
We have undergone two renovation projects with Cream City. Our first project was a bathroom 4 years ago. It was a complete gut and the end product was beautiful. Jim realized our vision and has a great aptitude for maintaining the integrity of an older home. Our kitchen reno just wrapped up and, once again, we are very pleased. As per our first experience, we stayed on budget, communication was excellent, the team was respectful and the quality of work is outstanding. We highly recommend working with Cream City for your next remodeling project.
Margaret and Mario- Wauwatosa
Our experience was AWESOME! We would do it again in a heart-beat! We love our new space and wish we could have done it a long time ago. We truly appreciate all the attention you have given us and continue to give us. We look forward to having the space photographed it is so beautiful!!!
Chad & Alissa - Whitefish Bay
MaryBeth and I were both very impressed with the project, the workers, workmanship and the attention to detail provided by Bill and Todd. You will always have 1st opportunity for any new project. In the beginning, we were especially impressed with the investment you made for us in designing the plans investment your competitors were not willing to make. This was probably the main reason we picked CCC to do the project. Bill, you are the best expediter and project manager we have ever dealt with you and your subs did the very best to complete the project by Thanksgiving. Thanks!
Jim & MaryBeth - Shorewood
We see the bathroom project won a silver award congratulations! We saw the picture on the NARI website. Jim, you deserve it. There is not a day that goes by that we do not comment on how much we love it. Thank you so much for the thoughtful gift certificate. We will toast your/our success on this GREAT project!
Marty & Claudia - Shorewood
We contracted Cream City Construction to build an all season sunroom with a basement. Jim and Todd, the owners of CCC, are excellent people-persons, instilling confidence and assurance in their clients. Jim took our plans and did a sterling job of overseeing all facets of development. Both Jim and Todd were extremely attentive to every detail and sensitive to addressing our wishes and special requests. CCC subcontractors were the best in the business, professional, neat, courteous, and punctual. Jim completed the entire project in advance of the proposed finish date. Needless to say, we are exceedingly satisfied with all the craftsmanship, daily enjoying the completed product. Dozens of neighbors agree, awed by how well the addition is integrated to the original building and how quickly the project moved along. Our assessment . . . A+.
Dick and Bonnie- Whitefish Bay
Our kitchen remodel was a huge project but due to the knowledge and experience of Jim and Todd at Cream City Construction all went smoothly. The design was beautiful and the timeline was followed. Jim went out of his way to track down the granite originally selected for our counter tops. We appreciated the selections made for our sink, faucet, flooring etc. We weren't overwhelmed with decisions. Our kitchen is not only what we wanted - it is better than we could have imagined. We both enjoy having the room to work together in our new kitchen.
Bill and Sara- Shorewood
During the past 15 years, I have contracted with Cream City Construction on five different occasions for remodeling projects that have included a kitchen, two bathrooms,a front entry way reconstruction, door replacements and closet organizers. I have continually been impressed with their attention to detail and extreme focus on customer service. In addition, their ability to create designs that are extremely functional while also maintaining consistency with the architectural style of older homes (ours is a 1920s era Tudor) is truly impressive. Our kitchen remodel is now 15 years old and we still get compliments on it. Both Jim and Todd are easy to work with and do a great job of making what can be a stressful process extremely pleasant through consistent communication and a demonstrated high degree of integrity. I would highly recommend this organization.
Dave and Kim- Shorewood
Cream City Construction is a first class, highly professional building and remodeling company. We hired them to remodel our master bathroom and are extremely pleased with the results. The transformation is amazing and our new bathroom is beautiful! The process was collaborative and our vision was brought to life very creatively. Jim was very present and responsive when we had questions or concerns. Whatever the issue he had a solution. CCC also has a knack for hiring the best subcontractors. They are all truly artisans who know their craft. I felt confident leaving my home that it was in good hands. Remodeling is not fun but Jim and his crews made it as pain free as possible. And the end result is so worth it. I can't wait for my next project with Cream City!
Tom and Diane- Downtown Milwaukee
Cream City Construction recently completed the remodel of our Master Bathroom and 2 additional bathrooms in our home. CCC was great to work with from the start until completion, and they were also very focused towards staying on schedule and budget. The communication from Jim was exceptional throughout the entire project. Their team of contractors were very respectful and professional. We are so thrilled with the end result of our beautiful new bathrooms that we would not hesitate to recommend CCC or use CCC again for any remodeling needs.
I would highly recommend CCC to anyone looking for quality build/remodeling.
They were very professional, receptive to our input and gave courteous feedback based on their experience when appropriate. they also were very easy to communicate with and were prompt with their responses even for very small questions.
Most importantly, they were very organized and kept to their planned schedule, even when there were setback/scheduling issues from subcontractors, which is extremely common. based on our previous experiences with other remodelers and from other experiences we have heard from friends, this is extremely rare in the build/remodeling business.
in hindsight, we wish we would have used them for all of our previous remodel projects and will definitely use CCC for any future projects.
Trisha and Jay- Whitefish Bay
We chose Cream City Construction b/c prior to any construction or contracts, they displayed great customer service and took the time and multiple appointments to explain everything to us. CCC also managed to maintain the character of our home. During our entire renovation project, CCC stayed on schedule with minimal delays. Also, their subcontractors were professional and timely as well. CCC is more like family than a contractor for hire. Looking back, I am confident when I say CCC turned our house into our dream home and I would highly recommend them.
Richard and Monica - Whitefish Bay
As you know, we had a major snafu early in our project, when the prefab fiberglass shower module that arrived did not fit down our basement stairs. Unfortunately, that misjudgment caused some frustration, as well as a delay on the project completion date. However, we really felt that you made every effort to correct the problem and come up with a fair solution. Ultimately, we are much happier with the look of an all tiled shower and are delighted with our final result! Thanks for everything!
Glen & Celeste - Mequon
Once Jean and I found out from Greg that Cream City Construction could redesign our kitchen, we started feeling good about moving forward with the project. We knew there were going to be problems that would come up unexpectedly. However, we knew they would be handled as quick as possible. This was proven during the project. As I have mentioned to Greg and Jim, I will definitely recommend your company to anyone looking to remodel. Thanks!
Jim & Jean - New Berlin
We would like to thank Jim and Bill for their outstanding patience with us. Each sub-contractor did wonderful jobs, and we would like to thank them also.
Ann & Jane - Fox Point
Thanks for a great job! Everyone loves
our bedroom and bathroom!
Kirk & Elizabeth - Bayside
The house I purchased is over 100 years old and Cream City transformed the home before I purchased it. Cream City Construction has created a wonderful transformation of my home. They have been able to maintain it's historical integrity at the same time of making it functional for a 20th Century Family. I was able to see "before" pictures and I know live in the "after." Their attention to the detail is evident in so many changes in my home. Most people that walk in to my home have no idea that doorways have been altered a bit, some of the molding is new, walls have been added, and other transformations. It definitely appears as if it was part of the original structure of the home, however, many changes are new with an alignment to the home's history. Review their website to see how well their projects have turned out. They really know how to maintain history in a home and make it functional to today's family.
Chris - Milwaukee
Cream City Construction has tackled 3 kitchen remodels, a basement overhaul, and a second floor bedroom/bathroom addition for our family. We could not be happier with Jim Grote and Todd Badvoski's work- the are professional, creative, stay true to their budget and their promises. Our latest remodel and family room addition won a gold award from Nari, and we are thrilled with the result. They stayed within the architecture of our 1928 historic home, yet added space and charm to allow our family of 6 to function and enjoy multiple spaces.
We would highly recommend Cream City Construction, and will use them for future projects.
~A satisfied Whitefish Bay Customer
We had Cream City remodel two full bathrooms. Both were complete tear outs. The project was very involved due to the historic old house. Cream City made the whole process easy for us. They stayed on time and on budget. The creative way they found to access the work site allowed us to not really even “feel” the construction going on in our home. They kept the area clear of any debris, were very respectful of our home and our space. The end results are exactly what we had hoped for, beautiful and better functioning for our family.
Steve and Patricia- Wauwatosa
We used Cream City on a substantial design/build project this year involving the addition of a master bedroom suite to our home. Our home was built in the 1930’s so it was important to create a new space that fit with the style of the home while also providing modern amenities and space utilization. Another challenge involved matching the stone exterior of the new space with the existing stone exterior. Cream City did a great job, completing the project on time and on budget. The new space feels like it was always part of the home and the exterior matches perfectly, down to the stonework and windows. This was the second project that we have completed with Cream City and we would definitely use them again.
Julie and Jeff- Wauwatosa
We hired Cream City Construction to design/build a fairly sizable kitchen and powder room gut-remodel project in our 1920's Shorewood home. Jim and the team were great to work with and kept us up to date on progress/schedule throughout the life cycle of the project. Finished product was outstanding and we couldn't be happier. Their Team Members all excellent; courteous, friendly, reliable and punctual.
We would recommend to others and will likely use CCC for our next major project!
