Featured Floor Plan: Meet the Blake!


Fun Fact: A lot of our floorplans are actually named after real people. Not celebrities or Presidents, but our own employees’ and homeowners’ unique and exuberant children! And our featured floor plan, the Blake, is no exception. Just like the real Blake, this 4-bedroom, 2.5-bathroom, 2,934 square home, is one that you’ll adore the minute you both meet!

Past your front door, you’ll find a charming foyer with a living room and a dining room on either side. The dining room, perfect for celebrations and family dinners, leads into a spacious kitchen, complete with an island, a charming breakfast nook, and a butler’s pantry. Best of all, the kitchen flows freely into the family room, which makes cooking and sharing meals together all the more special. Towards the back of the home you will find a powder room and an area that would make a perfect drop zone for coats, backpacks, and everything in between.

Upstairs on the second floor, luxury and leisure await in your spectacular master bedroom, which provides two large walk-in closets and a spa-like bathroom. Beyond your bedroom, you have 3 more spacious bedrooms, a full bathroom, and best of all, an upstairs laundry room.

Last but not least, if you want even more space in your new home, you have the choice to add a third floor that includes an unfinished attic space for additional storage, or finish the space and add a 5th bedroom and bathroom. At Schaeffer Family Homes, we believe that your home should look and feel exactly the way you want it to, so we always make sure that the most important choices are all yours.


From family dinners in the backyard to get-togethers with friends, every moment in your Blake home feels entirely and uniquely like you.

Design Center – Customize Your New Dream Home!

Choosing your home is one of the most important decisions you will make, from the outside architectural design and landscaping, to the location including community and schools. Next up comes the most fun and exciting part – customizing your dream home! This is where you can get creative, and we are here to guide you through the process. We strive to make your home as individual as you are.

Meet Christie!   

Upon signing the paperwork to build your new home, you will set your first of 2 appointments at your convenience with Christie Redner in the Design Center, with each appointment lasting 3 hours.  Here, she will help you make your selections in a casual environment that also provides one-stop shopping.

Home buyers will begin designing their home by selecting the exterior colors and finishes. Choose from 13 different included KP Vinyl siding colors. You have the ability to add stone, brick or accent siding to any home. All homes come included with Timberline dimensional roof shingles, again with many colors to choose from.

After you complete the exterior, you will begin designing your kitchen. The Design Center has a multitude of Aristokraft cabinet colors, wood types, styles and organizational features to truly personalize your new kitchen. Depending on your budget and style, you are able to choose from Quartz, Granite or Wilsonart Laminate Countertops. Make your dream kitchen become a reality!

Your Design Center Appointment will continue with selecting from many different Shaw flooring choices, Progress Lighting and Moen Plumbing fixtures.

Having all of the samples in one place is helpful for making color selections when viewing these pieces together.  Consider bringing along images of preferred designs, photographs or any color or fabric swatches to assist in making your selections. Some webistes we recommend to look through are Houzz and Pinterest.

The Design Center Experience is an enjoyable time and Christie does her best to guide you along while allowing you time to make selections at your own pace. Christie is our Director of Sales, and has been with Schaeffer Family Homes for over 7 years.
