Asked by Allblue, 02186 Thu Feb 12, 2009

I am not certain regarding their pricing estimates. What is the true quality? Anyone know of comparable builders in Chapel Hill, NC?

Help the community by answering this question:


I am currently building a house in Orange County NC. We met with the Schumacher Homes people. I was not impressed, we had to meet with them several times for them to get information together for us. Once we started added custom features(ones that they would allow) to the house the house costs were then very similar to a custom builder. Hope this helps. BTW, right now, MUCH cheaper to buy and not build. I alreaydy own the land where I am building...

Yes, my wife and I did and we got a lemon for $170,000.00. We were lied to during the entire construction process about having a dry basement. It's only dry if we install two sump pumps with two backup battery sump pumps and a generator to back up those. I will now have to maintain this mess for the rest of my life! What a crock! Thats not all. Our framing was horrible. Looked like it was done by people with no experience! Do yourself a favor and STAY AWAY!!!.
