In today’s “side-hustle” culture, it seems everyone is turning their hobby into additional cash flow and the work never stops.

Our Story: How Schuber Mitchell Homes Began

Posted by Alexis DeRoin on Jul 30, 2018 1:58:04 PM

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.
