Area builders expect to be busy with new home construction in Door and Kewaunee Counties. Those projects will also be more expensive. Rising fuel prices and increased demand for building materials are pushing up the costs for new homes. Eli Phillips, owner of Alpha Through Omega Construction of Luxemburg, says he's had to look beyond local suppliers for some materials. That's impacted the construction timeline on some projects.
Phillips says despite all of the challenges the demand for new homes is not slowing down.
