Fairy Tale Endings and Happily Ever After

Once upon a time (actually eight years ago), in a sleepy little realm (Lake County) filled with sparkling waters and quaint small towns, there lived a lady who was searching for someone who could build the home of her dreams. She had searched far and wide but couldn’t find the right person. Finally, she stumbled upon a model home created by a builder with an unusual name of Hofmeister. Upon entering and inspection of the dwelling, and after touring the kitchen and bath areas, she joyfully exclaimed, “I’ve found my builder!”

Thus began the true homebuilding story of Jane Doe (her name is the only part of this story that’s fictitious) and Hofmeister Design & Construction, Inc. Together they had all of her dreams and desires transformed magically with Pixie dust (actually sawdust) into a custom home reality where she lived happily ever after.

Well not quite.

Completely satisfied with construction of her abode, but because of life changes, she found herself needing to build another storybook home eight years later.

Delighted with her last building experience, she once again chose Hofmeister as her night in shining armor (ok, just a modest builder). But don’t take this narrator’s word for it, listen to Pat as she tells her own story.

“When it came time to build again, there was no doubt in my mind who would do it. I enjoy working with Tom Hofmeister and his dedicated team. They are a great family business that live up to their reputation of high quality and ethics passed down from Tom’s father, John – my kind of people!” Their word is their bond and they do everything they can to please you. It’s also great to work with the same crew from 8 years ago. The entire team is wonderful, from the design staff to the construction supervisor, they take my ideas and make them happen and they’ve become part of my family – I’m a happy camper!”

Now building a custom home isn’t always like a fairy tale and it can be challenging. Pat continues, “you do put a lot of yourself in to it, but Hofmeister makes it much easier. The hardest part for me was picking everything out, I like beautiful things and there’s so many things to choose from. But they helped me with the design and selections and staying on budget. They were also always ready to answer any questions – even stupid ones!”

When asked to sum up her homebuilding story, she replies with a twinkle in her eye, “I loved it! I could do another one (actually Pat isn’t alone, over 98% of Hofmeister clients surveyed say they would absolutely build with them again). I also love the fact that the house is built so well, everything is top notch, and I don’t have to worry about unnecessary upkeep (unlike those first two pigs in that other story).
