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.

I had the privilege of a tour of the home being built by Erich Schaefer of Schaefer Custom Homes on the coast of Central California. The attention to detail is evident on all levels of his work. The time and research spent to procure exactly the perfect materials for this home, and the homeowner, has created a most functional and elegant living space. It is quite simply stated an amazing work of art. I have been an interior designer on the Central Coast since 1990 and have worked with many contractors during my tenure. Over the years, I have shared in the build of multiple high end and beautiful homes. I find this project and the contractor to be exceptional. Jo Frank Interiors by Jo Frank

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.

PleinAire Design Group has successfully worked with Schafer Custom Homes. Erich understands that the landscape is not an afterthought. He appreciates the details that make a project stand out, and the design process that we go through with clients, to get them the project they envision.

Erich is always exceptional and intuitive about any issue, not just building. Talk to Erich and he will bring up relevant topics such as realistic pros and cons of a project and how to go about building it. He always has his thinking cap on and he listens. For example, I spent 2 years working with several local architects and engineers without any viable solutions to my project challenges. After one meeting with Erich, we had a viable solution which I took to the architect and engineer who agreed that it would work. I was then able to obtain all the necessary permits and approvals to perform the work. I was amazed at how quickly Erich was able to help me jump through all the hoops in order to complete my project. Looking back at everyone involved in this project, they all marveled at the cleverness and simplicity of Erich's approach to the project.
