Builder Spotlight: Meet Jason!

Schaeffer FamilyThere are few things more special than sharing the feeling of home with your family. Between milestones and everyday moments, your home is the safest and most comforting place in the world. Only someone who lives and breathes the value of family knows how to build the homes that families deserve, and we’re proud to say that at Schaeffer Family Homes, that someone is none other than our wonderful leader, Jason Schaeffer.

When he first stepped into his role, the first thing that Jason did was incorporate the word “family” into the company name. “We are truly a family company. My mother still works for the company, as do my brother and wife. We have many employees who have been with us for decades and all of our employees are treated as family.” Best of all, when you buy a home with us, you become a lasting part of this Schaeffer family.

Before purchasing the family business from his mother and father in 2006, Jason worked in construction as a service and warranty manager, a sales manager, and eventually an operations manager for many years, in which he oversaw about 1,000 homes being built. Everything he’s learned about the industry through his past experiences have helped to shape his role today, and we’re grateful for the chance to learn from him every day!

Since the very beginning, Jason has put a significant emphasis on exceptional customer service. The happiness of his homeowners is his number one priority, which all starts with a rewarding building experience. Because GuildQuality provides Schaeffer Family Homes with real market research from homeowners, Jason pays special attention to what you say, so he can ensure that the work he does significantly enhances your life.

Having grown up in Berlin Borough, Jason has always been close to where our headquarters and design center are today. After spending time traveling and working after college, Jason settled into the new home industry and has been here ever since. Jason married his high school sweetheart, moved to beautiful Haddonfield, and lives there now with his wife and three sons.

It’s no surprise that Jason’s love of family and community doesn’t stop when he’s not in the office. In fact, his favorite thing to do in his free time is to enjoy moments with his family, whether that’s going on trips, relaxing at home, or attending his children’s sporting or music events. He also pursues aviation — did you know that Jason is a private pilot? If he weren’t the owner of Schaeffer Family Homes, he’d be flying planes!

When it comes to the heart and soul of your home, there are no better hands to be in than Jason’s. With an unmatched eye for aesthetics, design, and function (fun fact: Jason was given a scholarship to attend the Accademia di Bella Arti in Florence and was a professional sculptor after college), and an immense amount of love and care for his work and his homeowners, Jason is the co-pilot you want on your homebuilding journey.

All of us at Schaeffer Family Homes would love to thank Jason for being the greatest leader and inspiration of all. Our work is a fulfilling adventure each and every day, due in large part to the man that helps to make the magic happen.

Design Trends Making a Comeback

When it comes to interior design, a single trend can be the talk of the town for years and then essentially fall off the planet. Remember avocado-colored furniture and wallpaper borders? Yeah, we don’t want to either… But in 2018, we’re seeing a major comeback happen; you won’t believe the trends that are heating up again with the help of a little modern flare!

In your spacious and comfortable Schaeffer home, your interior design makes you feel just as good as the high-quality structure and building materials that we provide you with. Draw some inspiration from these timeless trends and get ready to give your home a makeover that you’ll love for good!

 

Living Room

You may know all about the “millennial pink” craze that has taken the nation by feminine storm, but did you know that good old fashioned blue and white is making its way back into homes? This classic color scheme gives off a peaceful, somewhat nautical vibe, and is being revamped with modern patterns and textures in living rooms. Once popular in the 90’s, these colors are happy to be making their way in 2018!

living room decorating

If we’re playing music from the 60’s and 70’s on our iPhones, then why can’t design trends from this time make their way back into our modern lives? Believe it or not, Macrame is all the rage — again! Macrame is beautiful, knotted rope that’s designed in creative ways to make hanging planters, wall hangings, and more. Take a trip back to yesteryear and find a spot on your wall for an ode to the best decades of all!

 

Bathroom and Kitchen

If it’s hard to believe that brass is back in style, we don’t blame you! This staple of the 1980’s was in such abundance that homeowners eventually wanted to be as far from it as possible. But now, brass doesn’t signify something common — it’s now a sign of luxury. It’s softer, less harsh and shiny, and inexplicably trendy. Try brass fixtures and accents in your bathroom and kitchen for a sleek, sophisticated look.

Although it seems as though all white or all dark, minimal and modern kitchens are the chic way to go, it’s good to know that kitchen colors are coming back! Just like the 50’s and 60’s, cabinets are sporting colors again, this time with fashionable hu

es like classy navy and elegant hunter green. Get ready for the heat of the kitchen as the greatest room in the house is ready to pop again!

 

Bedroom

You’ve probably thought long and hard about how you want your Schaeffer bedroom to look. If you’re a sucker for light, pretty colors but you’ve been swayed by the ultra-modern color trends of today, we have good news for you: pastels are back! Yes, you heard that right. Light pinks, greens, blues, and oranges are back in style, only this time, they’re understated and calm, giving your space a relaxed, modern vibe that doesn’t feel retro.

“Contemporary wallpaper” may seem like two contradictory terms, but believe it or not, this widely used trend of the past is now coming back into the spotlight! Decorative wallpaper can now be used not just to give color to your walls, but to show your creativity and unique eye for design. Since monotone colors has been in for so long, vibrant modern prints truly highlight your originality. We’re excited about it!

Interior design is a great way to show off your singular style. Just like the physical components of your home, the way it looks and feels on the inside plays a part in how you feel everyday. We love that while some design trends are fun to look back on, others are simply timeless.

When it comes to the inside of your home, get inspired by the design ideas with true staying power — they may make your home as home-y as can be!
