Interested In Building On Your Own Lot? Check Out Schaeffer Family Homes!

Everyone has a different idea of where they want their dream home to be. For some, living in a new community is an aspiration. But for others, a spot far from town—or a lot right in the middle of town—may be more attractive. The Build On Your Lot program from Schaeffer Family Homes is an exciting alternative to our communities. It offers the option of building a high-quality Schaeffer home on a homesite that you may already own or one that we can help you acquire.

Evaluating Your Homesite

If you have a homesite, we can help determine if it is suitable for building. Schaeffer Family Homes provides a homesite inspection for all of our customers. During a due diligence contingency period, we will go out to your homesite and identify which items will need to be addressed to build your new home. We will also talk to the local municipalities and zoning offices to determine what permits and tests they require. We recommend that a soil test, seasonal high water table test and topographical grading plan be performed to get things started.
