Paul Schermer Construction was founded in 2002, Paul had 18 years’ experience in the construction industry and had always dreamed of making his passion into a family business. This dream of his became a reality when his son, Chris and son-in-law, Alex shared this same passion for construction and working with new people – so began CAP (Chris, Alex, Paul) Custom Homes!

"Our 1930’s little cabin had some big challenges. Part of the original foundation was crumbling due to old age and large tree roots. We decided that Alex and CAP Custom Homes had the skill and creativity to get the job done. Alex and team successfully completed raising the cabin, excavating the old foundation and building a new, solid foundation. They continued the renovation with landscaping, new roof, exterior paint/ stain and installed/vented a new gas furnace/central air. We are beyond thrilled with the results! Alex and team are reliable, skilled, fair and honest. Highly recommend."
