Rehabs + Redesigns + Rentals + Retail

Good Solid Work by Good Solid People.


Welcome to our little corner of Wisconsin

Porch Light Homes began as by offering northwest Wisconsin home renovations, is a labor of love for our family. It’s the culmination of years of personal and professional growth, and is the result of some pretty terrifying leaps from our comfort zones.

As a family, we believe strongly in the rewards of hard work and dedication and hold fast to a commitment to our community. We want to make a difference in our little corner of the world, to raise up what is good and decent about rural Wisconsin and create homes and experiences that mirror the wonderful people we call our friends and neighbors.



Thoughtful renovations with the next buyer in mind. Our northwest Wisconsin home renovations are unique, practical and priced to sell.


Porch Light offers customize and budget-friendly design consultations for any scale project.


Thinking about cashing in on the Airbnb, short-term rental market? We can help!

My favorite local picking spots

By emilygall ~ March 1, 2018

A lot of times when people come into my home they’ll ask about certain pieces and where I got them. I have a sometimes classic, sometimes eclectic kind of style, so there is usually something interesting around for almost any taste. What I’ve found is that I have my go-to retailers and shop owners – the same five or six places make up about 80 percent of the furniture and decor in my home.

Everyone, meet Elm Street!

She started as a a 4-bedroom, 2-bathroom home in Webster, Wisconsin. It was “love at first tour” – the barn-style exterior makes it one of the prettiest homes in the neighborhood.
