For almost 50 years, U.S. Shelter Homes, Inc. has built residential communities and semi-custom single-family homes of superior design, workmanship and value throughout the greater Chicago Metropolitan Area and Southeast Wisconsin. The family owned and operated company – now run by third-generation owners – takes pride in its hard-earned reputation, measurable by the satisfaction of its buyers, town administrators and trade specialists.

Throughout its history, the company has built more than 5,500 homes. U.S. Shelter was founded by Edmund Sorenson in 1970, with a community in Elgin, Illinois. His son, Jack Sorenson, became President of the company in 1984. And today, Jack’s oldest son, John Sorenson, resides as President of U.S. Shelter Homes. Home building is in the Sorenson bloodlines. It’s a passion and a lifestyle, with outstanding company standards passed between the generations.
