Founded in 1986, Mike Schaap Builders, Inc (MSB) specializes in one-of-a-kind custom homes that are as spectacular as they are enduring. With over three decades of practice and over 30 specialists on staff, including estimators, project managers, supervisors and craftsmen, the firm has cultivated a portfolio that spans across many genres of architecture and illustrates why the difference is always in the details.
Stressing design as much as construction, MSB is unique in its ability to fabricate many of its own project details through its in-house sister company, Benchmark Wood & Design Studios. From plan design to interior design, to the finest hand-crafted millwork and cabinetry, furnishings and finishes, their talented team of craftsmen and design professionals work side-by-side MSB, fostering unencumbered collaboration and creativity and an engaging process that provides clients with a single-source of accountability.
Above all, it’s the honest and sincere business practices that showcase the firm’s faithful pursuit of excellence and the heart of the people who built it. With exceptional front-end planning, comprehensive follow-through, and a natural enthusiasm for overcoming complex and challenging projects, they remain dedicated to realizing a unified vision: yours.
The result is always a home of enduring beauty and value and an experience that is as enjoyable as the final product.
