Healthy in the Valley

Build Your Dream Home in a Dream Community – Life is Great in the Chippewa Valley!

Western Wisconsin is known for its scenic beauty, which is probably one reason so many of us are big fans of outdoor activities. The seasons might have something to do with it too, with our unique (and sometimes dramatic) variety of weather. Just about every sport and pastime you can name has an avid following here in the Chippewa Valley, making ours a truly varied and rich community. As our friends at Visit Eau Claire put it, “Sports aren’t just a pastime in the Eau Claire area, they’re our way of life…” In a region full of excellent sports facilities and recreational spots, the proof of this statement is evident for all to see.

But it’s not just the love of the outdoors that defines us; we share a love of culture, history, and community, too. And in this way, both physically and emotionally, health and wellness are a natural part of life here. Being in the Wisconsin home building and remodeling business for more than 20 years, R. Tews Construction & Design can attest to the fact that families of all types and sizes put these “quality of life” issues near the top of the list when buying or building a home. It’s one of the reasons we were excited to become the exclusive builder for Hallie Ridge Estates, a planned, private community designed with health and natural beauty very much in the forefront. With its green lots spaced among landscaped paths…facilities for swimming, tennis, and overall fitness…and amenities designed to enhance every lifestyle, Hallie Ridge Estates exemplifies the “go for it” nature of life in the Chippewa Valley!

Thriving Communities

With a great diversity of sporting events, activities, and facilities, there are endless opportunities to get hearts racing and pulses pumping all year round. Hiking, biking, skating or walking trails, canoeing or kayaking, golfing, horseback riding or hunting…the list goes on and on. But health and wellness aren’t defined by physical activities alone. We also know that great food, culture, and the occasional pampering play a great role in our happiness here in the Valley. From the wineries (yes, good for your health!) to the busy farmer’s markets to some of the best dining establishments in the state, we’ve got the culinary arts covered nicely. And did we mention cheese curds? Bite size happiness that squeaks!

Don’t think for a minute that we’ve forgotten the arts. The Western Wisconsin area has a remarkable performing arts community, ranging from home-grown theatrical and musical productions to festivals hosting national artists. We boast a symphony orchestra comprised of our friends and neighbors, a “Top Ten” historical treasure in Menomonie’s Mabel Tainter Theater, and an elegant weekend of evening attire known as the Viennese Ball. Tally it all up, and we exercise the intellect and the spirit as much as we do our thrill of the outdoors.

A Great Place to Call Home

We may be slightly biased, but at R. Tews Construction & Design, we feel the Chippewa Valley is a vibrant region that is well-suited for optimal health, wellness and happiness. Whether you’re already here and looking to set deeper roots, or you’re reading this from afar (our sympathies, we’re not all this lucky), we’d love to talk to you about your building or remodeling needs. We already have a dream community…let’s get working on your dream home, too!
