EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) -- An Eau Claire business is celebrating the groundbreaking of a new office building on the city's south side.

Wednesday afternoon, owners of C&M Home Builders and Real Estate hosted a groundbreaking ceremony with the Eau Claire Area Chamber of Commerce.

The nearly 5,000 square foot building will be home to the builder's real estate offices, and it will also include a new boutique focused on interior design pieces.

"It's kind of new to us. We're residential home builders but getting into commercial, it's exciting. It's exciting to build something new, do something different. I think I'm going to get out here and swing a hammer just because I'm excited about it," said owner Cody Filipczak.

The business says the expansion is due to growth.
