37 Years in Business, From Father to Son
Obsessing about the details for two generations
Hearthside Homes, Inc. is a family owned and operated builder of luxury custom homes in the Texas Hill Country. The company was founded in 1987 by Skip Schimpff, a San Antonio native who today has over 50 years of home building experience to his name.
Day-to-day operation of the company has since passed to Skip’s son, Carter, who began working for Hearthside Homes “from the bottom up” when he was 8 years old - doing the jobs nobody else wanted to do, like cleaning trash, hauling rubble, and endless hours of sweeping.
Over the last three decades, Hearthside Homes has earned a quiet reputation as a company that builds a timeless, “done right” home, with outstanding communication and an emphasis on value.
Our focus today, as it was back in ‘87, is quality over quantity. We build between 15 and 20 homes per year, which allows the entire team to be intimately involved in every single stage of every single home’s construction.
Unlike many other custom home builders in the Hill Country, it isn’t unusual at all to find Carter out at one of the homes under construction, obsessing over small details and - yes - even cleaning.
Our team boasts over 140 combined years of home building experience, and the majority of our trades have been with us for 10 years or more because we focus on finding and keeping the very best subcontractors - not the very cheapest.
Every member of the Hearthside Homes team wakes every morning with genuine excitement and enthusiasm about building dream homes for families in the Texas Hill Country. We sincerely hope we’ll have the opportunity to build yours, too.
