Testimonials

What Our Clients Say

I've had other homes built, but none compares to the home I had built by Schaefer Custom Homes. It was enjoyable and gratifying working together.

Betty P.

We have friends who ask us what builder should we choose to build or remodel our home here on the Central Coast? We always recommend Schaefer Custom Homes.

Rick & Mary

Building a house is a marathon of choices. Erich helped us where we were unsure, explaining where the benefits were and where they were not. This helped us to either keep money in our pocket or put it somewhere else in the house.

Dan & Lori

I’ve never worked with a nicer, more thoughtful home builder than Erich Schaefer. I found him to be honest, accommodating, adaptable and considerate.

Tony H.

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.
