We have known Erich for 30 years. It was a "no brainer" to choose Erich to build our house in Cayucos. We bought the lot in 2016 and he was with us before escrow even closed. He worked closely with our architects during the design and permitting process (18 Mos.). After we broke ground, we met often as a team to ensure that we achieving what we wanted...isn't great when your builder's word is good, is on time to all meetings and builds a quality product to your needs?? That describes Erich Schaefer! Now, 5 years later, we are still in touch with Erich and consider him more than our builder...he is a trusted friend. He is still giving us advice and helping us make decisions.

Thank you for this blessing John. Building a home with you and Dawn was one of the highlights of our 35 year custom homebuilding career. You both made the process so easy and enjoyable. We're glad you are enjoying your home. You earned it.

We have known Schaefer Custom Homes for decades. They are well known for their thorough pre-planning design, permitting assistance and giving their clients an enjoyable building experience. Their customers are extremely satisfied with the high level of service they receive. Their attention to detail, expertise, professionalism and unwavering commitment to their clients has made them one of the premier custom home builders in San Luis Obispo County. The projects they have built are amazing. I've gotten to tour a number of them and their work is exceptional. Their ability to handle technical projects and to problem solve is truly unique. Anyone considering building a custom home or winery would be wise to contact the capable team at Schaefer Custom Homes before doing anything else.

Erich Schaefer and his team built our new home in the thick of the pandemic. Despite delays and cost increases for materials, the house made steady progress. Erich and our site manager, Chris Bahr, worked tirelessly to fulfill our wishes and hopes for a beautiful home. Their expertise and access to the best subcontractors ensured that the finished house was of the highest quality possible. Erich worked with us to find alternatives when a product was not available. His client interface CoConstruct kept everyone in the loop and kept track of change orders and progress. We would absolutely recommend Erich Schaefer Construction to build a beautiful high quality home.

Erich is a great contractor, knowledgeable, patient, experienced, creative and highly trustworthy and well connected to the local building community of subcontractors, engineers, architects and materials providers. His Project Manager Chris Bahr was an absolute pleasure to work with. Our home turned out beautifully and I feel very fortunate that we had Erich and Chris on the Project.

Erich Schaefer built a beautiful custom home for us, and we would recommend him and his company to anyone that wants to enjoy a high-quality home, built with the utmost care and professionalism. Erich Schaefer is honest, patient, has high integrity, and is concerned about every aspect of building a “forever” home. He communicates very effectively and keeps track of each aspect of the building process. He is also flexible and can offer solutions to sudden problems or necessary adjustments. He really engages with the homeowner for many details and tries to find the optimum solution. Chris Bahr, our project manager, was excellent and worked very closely with us and the subcontractors to make sure the work was completed to the highest standards. We were building during Covid, and there were many times that supplies, or people were delayed, and the costs inevitably were higher than we had hoped for, but in the end, our home is exactly what we wanted, and it was worth all the effort that it took.
