  • Thank you for helping us out this year with the guest house remodel and for always being willing to consult on our projects! We sincerely appreciate your help and guidance.

    Chuck & Trish K. Custom Home Client
  • Shaffer Homes has built two homes for me over the last ten years. Bill is great to work with. He guides you through the home building process in a way that makes it easy. Bill keeps the project on schedule and in budget and delivers the home you have always wanted.

    Doug & Gusti W. Custom Home Client
  •       After Judy and I had our custom designed home drawn and engineered into plans, we interviewed four custom home builders that were highly recommended to us. Bill Shaffer was the only builder who took his shoes off before he came into our house, had hands that showed he physically participated in his homes building process (most builders just build their homes with a cell phone), listened intently to our wishes, gave us the best no nonsense quote with specific cost breakdowns and smiled a lot. Obviously, we chose him to build our dream home and four years later we feel so lucky that we did choose Bill Shaffer. Honesty and integrity best describe Bill, and the homes he builds are just beautiful; and he built our home exactly to the specifications that we wanted, inside and out. One could not have a better builder, no matter how big or small the home, no matter how simple or complex, Bill is the builder anyone would dream of having!
    Ron & Judy S. Custom Home Client

“I know that we all feel honored to be able to bring our client’s dreams to life in the creation of homes that last.  

I am still in awe of the opportunity we are given to work with families to create a special place for them to live. Each house takes on its own feel and character with each choice that the owner makes which makes each project a special experience.

There is a satisfaction to knowing that we are building homes that will last for more than a hundred years, blessing future families for many generations.”
