Building your own home is one of the biggest decisions you’ll ever make. Careful consideration must be given to things like your budget, lenders, timeframe, and location - not to mention floor plans, style, color schemes, and amenities. But let’s talk about the one thing that could literally make or break your home building journey – your builder! You’ve heard the horror stories about painful experiences with unreliable contractors and unexpected expenses. Finding the right builder is so important. Not just during the build, but even after you’ve moved in. So do your research, ask lots of questions, and choose wisely. In the meantime, check out the top 5 things that every great home builder gets right.

No matter how old we get, birthdays often open the door for reflection on the past and plans for the future. Stories of the day we were born or things we enjoyed as children and goals that we hope to accomplish in the coming year. We just celebrated our 7th birthday at Schuber Mitchell Homes. So much has changed since our inception. Our families. Our community. Our company. Heck, our ownership has even changed. (We’re actually Schuber Mitchell Harris Homes, but what a mouthful!) Just like a child matures from an infant, celebrating milestones and accomplishments, we at Schuber Mitchell Homes have developed and evolved (sometimes painfully) into a residential systems builder serving two distinctly different markets in Missouri and Arkansas with nearly 50 employees, and on pace to build 300 homes this year. We praise the Lord for our success, we are excited to see what He has in store for our future, and we wanted to share with you the story of how it all started seven years ago.
