The Schnobel family purchases Williams Bay home at Bailey Estates
David and Angie Schnobel and their two children wake up every morning in love with their new life and Williams Bay home at Bailey Estates in Wisconsin. The family had been in love with the area for years, but recently made their dreams a reality by moving to the area full time this past April. Fast forward just a couple of months and the Schnobel’s would not trade in their 2,170 square foot ranch home for anything in the world.
The home they decided on is Gerstad Builders’ Jefferson model and is set on a 1.14 acre wooded lot. This design has three bedrooms, a full basement, and the family opted to add a four-season room that provides an additional 168 square feet of living space.
David and Angie were thrilled with these options for their family of four. David said, “After living in a Plainfield home squeezed onto a small home site constructed in a former corn field, we knew our new home must have more land.” Angie added, “The decision to build a four season room onto our new home was not debatable. How could you not want to have this room with the views of the wooded backyard that we have available?” […]

April is a month to celebrate and honor the earth. We recently celebrated Earth Day where many residents of McHenry new homes looked for ways to promote sustainability and go green, as well as Arbor Day, where families across the nation were encouraged to get out and plant a tree. More than just a day to give back to the planet, Arbor Day offers a time where you can enjoy the outdoors and appreciate the trees in your community.
At Gerstad Builders, we work hard to provide our residents with a beautiful community, full of natural beauty, trees and green space. In fact, at Liberty Trails, a portion of our community is actually a nature preserve. This community offers tons of green space and a tot lot, providing homeowners with a place to relax outdoors without having to leave the comfort of their community. […]
