Schaefer Custom Homes is amazing. First of all, Erich, his family, and his team are kind people who have a deep passion for the quality of their work and for genuinely helping their clients. We have seen many examples of Schaefer Custom Homes’ work, including a spectacular (that’s an understatement!) home in Shell Beach that we had the opportunity to thoroughly tour upon its completion. Quality oozed from every square inch. We have consulted with Erich and appreciate his kindness and patience. We highly recommend Schaefer Custom Homes to anyone looking to craft a dream home that will exceed even your dreams!

Building Dreams with Schaefer Custom Homes. As a Client Relationship Specialist at Schaefer Custom Homes, I witness firsthand the incredible experience our clients have throughout the custom build process. From dream conception to final walkthrough, our team takes immense pride in delivering exceptional craftsmanship and unparalleled customer service. We begin by attentively listening to each client's vision, whether it's a dream home, remodel, guest house, or ADU. Our collaborative design phase brings together architects, designers, engineers, and our skilled team to translate those dreams into detailed plans. We seamlessly integrate client input while offering valuable insights to optimize functionality and design. The construction phase is equally impressive. Our punctual and efficient crews maintain a clean and organized work environment, ensuring top-quality craftsmanship is evident in every detail, from the foundation to the exquisite finishes. Transparent communication is key – clients are kept informed throughout the process, and projects are completed on time and within budget. Our commitment to transparency extends beyond communication. Upfront pricing and adherence to the highest industry standards are hallmarks of Schaefer Custom Homes. It's no surprise to hear our clients say, "We are now living in our dream home, and it wouldn't have been possible without Schaefer Custom Homes." Matthew Mitchell Schaefer Custom Homes

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.
