Each home we build and each family we work with is unique. We believe that the best way to communicate our process and our results is by inviting you into the homes we have built and remodeled and by introducing you to the clients we now call friends.

Mission Springs Arroyo Grande

This stunning Spanish-style custom home in Arroyo Grande is a showstopper, inside and out. Tucked in the rolling hills above the city proper, Mission Springs transports you to European countrysides smattered with villas and trees dancing in the warm wind. Guests are greeted through heavy, custom timber doors on a beautiful terrace, opening up to structural timber trusses that are featured throughout the home. While the home itself is luxurious, it promises low levels of maintenance with home comfort systems such as radiant heat and energy management.

How could I possibly review a business I myself haven't used? Because I've known Erich (and his Dad) for decades. I have visited many of their homes. Erich is a quintessential builder. He will never disappoint you; he will always deliver a superb home. He functions with know-how, integrity and enormous understanding of the stresses of building one's dream home. You will never regret hiring him.

Putting Our Whole Heart Into Your Home

What It Means to "Build With Heart"

The center of each and every project we work on, the heart, is you – the client! When we say we “Build with Heart” it is because we consider each project as an opportunity for our clients to be cared for. At Schaefer Custom Homes, we believe that the relationship we build and your enjoyment of the process is just as important as the finished product.

Our Heart is Here

While you, the client, are the heart of every project, San Luis Obispo is at the heart of Schaefer Custom Homes. The place, the people, and the lifestyle. We love living on the central coast and we’ve built custom homes in every environment you can find here, from the beaches to cattle country, wine country to city living. Your home is our home and our heart is here.
