About Us


Schmidke Construction and Contracting

Schmidke Construction and Contracting, or SCC, has established a reputation for superior quality in new residential construction and remodels along the Lake Michigan shoreline and in communities across Southwest Michigan and Northwest Indiana. 

Collaborating with the appropriate individuals for a custom home project is just as important as planning and sourcing the appropriate building materials. SCC clients benefit from over 20 years of local custom home building experience. In addition to in-house experience, the team has established relationships with reputable professionals specializing in real estate, engineering, architecture, design, trades, financing and more.

Creating custom spaces unique to each client is an exciting and a very personal experience. Schmidke Construction and Contracting, or SCC, understands personal journeys as owner Joshua Schmidke built the business at a very young age out of hard work, earned knowledge, and high expectations.

First Generation | Gaining Knowledge Through the Trades

SCC was established in 2001 but long before that, Joshua set out with his father, a plumbing contractor, on job sites as a young child. He became an apprentice, learning more about the business from each subcontractor and general contractor and eventually secured his Journeyman license in plumbing. After almost two decades of exposure to the trades, Joshua broke into custom home building and built his first home at the age of 24.

Mastering the Industry 

In addition to growing Schmidke Construction, Joshua and his wife Brianne launched Properti Home Concierge in 2021 to further cater to clients after their build and serve second-home owners with home watch and concierge services.

Joshua volunteers in the local community’s youth sports, he is a member of the National Association of Home Builders, an NAHB Builder 20 club, the Home Builders Association of Southwestern Michigan where he served on the Board of Directors for 9 years, and the Sawyer Small Business Owners Group. He continues to be active in the industry with his finger on the pulse of the latest trends along with new state and federal building regulations affecting past, existing, and potential future clients. 

Family Legacy

Family is so important to Schmidke Construction. As a boutique builder, we are able to focus on the lives of our clients and our team members while still delivering big project results. We celebrate with employee spouses, children, and furbabies. We get to impact surrounding communities together at fundraisers and events. You may even see the Schmidke kids on a jobsite learning how it all comes together or admiring design selections.

It brings our team and our families great satisfaction knowing that the spaces we’ve created are being enjoyed over holidays, summers, and life-changing milestones for years to come. 

From our SCC family to yours, thank you for visiting.
