Standards & Leaving a legecy

It’s crazy to think you can change an industry; it’s crazy to think that a small group of highly motivated people can make a ding in the universe while we are here. The courage, tenacity and commitment one must possess to go after that dream is what sets extraordinary companies apart from every other company out there.

We are committed to nothing less than creating life shaping industry leaders in this company who not only rise to the occasion but raise the standards in this industry and provide you with more than just a house. We recognize a house is not just some walls and a roof but…

A HOME is somewhere your first child is brought after birth, your son or daughter goes to their first school dance, mom & dad celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary, & birthday parties that fill the home with laugher will be captured inside those walls…a home is somewhere you make magical moments and etch your name in eternity with memories that will be passed down for generations to come.

You are family here isn’t just something we say but we live by, and your home isn’t just walls and a roof but it’s a place where you feel safe, loved and happy. The same happiness our loved ones feel after building a custom home is the same happiness we want to pass onto all of our clients, which in turn become part of our family.

Meet Our Team

Our team has over 77 years of combined experience in construction and design, so we know how to make your dream home a reality!

We have three founders with vast experience who contribute immensely to the joy of our clients and the success of the company.


Mark Stewart

Mark is a renowned builder with over 21 years of home building showcased in the Parade of Homes. He pulls all the strings and sees everything needed to put a beautiful home together for your family. What pieces go where and who does what in the proper order, Mark knows how to put a team together that will get you into your custom dream home. A builder who cut his teeth learning from the ground up, Mark has personally worked in almost every trade it takes to build a home. Mark can tell you the difference between a poorly built home & a builder who knows how to put a home together properly.

Mark started swinging a hammer when he was just 15 years old and hasn’t looked back since, even buying his first rehab home when he was just 17! The founder of Landmark Homes back in the 80’s Mark built parade homes year after year, including multi-million dollar homes on local lakes, golf courses and everywhere in between. Possibly one of the most detailed builders to come out of Wisconsin, Mark sold his company in 2006, moved to Colorado, started running a lodge and then got the itch to come back home to his roots in Wisconsin. He’s jumped right back into the building trade and is ready to take Sanctified to the number one rated home builder in Wisconsin.

With over 31 years of residential construction/project management and real estate experience, Ted brings a plethora of product knowledge and job experience to the table. With a detailed eye for planning and seeing jobs through from start to finish, Ted will keep your home build on track.
