Homeowner Profile: The Allerkamps

One of the most rewarding parts of designing and building custom homes is getting to know the families they’re built for. Every Authentic Custom Home is designed to fit the personality and lifestyle of our client. Once a home is complete, we like to sit down with our homeowners to talk about their experience and what they love most about their new home.

The Allerkamps recently moved into their two-story, 3 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom house in Boerne, Texas. Here’s what Jim Allerkamp to say about their new home and their experience with Authentic Custom Homes.

My wife Breanna and I always knew we wanted to move back to Boerne. She graduated from Boerne High School, so the town has always felt like home to us. Driving through, we came across homes with a timeless look that we instantly fell in love with. Every one payday loans online we liked was built by Authentic Custom Homes. We knew right away, before even looking at the interiors of the homes they built, that Authentic Custom Homes was the builder for us.


We wanted to live in old town Boerne rather than in a gated community or subdivision. The lot we chose is close to the conveniences of Boerne with easy access to the highway. Many of the lots in our neighborhood were plotted back in the 1800s, so the area is extremely charming. 

Our classic Hill Country home has an owner’s suite a half bathroom downstairs, two additional bedrooms and full bathrooms upstairs. The open floor plan makes the kitchen, living room and dining room easily accessible and inviting. We incorporated traditional Hill Country touches including a metal roof with steep pitches, rough-cut cedar and shutters.

We named our budget at the beginning of the process, and Authentic Custom Homes was able to tweak the design to fit within those parameters. They definitely went to the drawing board several times to make that happen. The hardest part was making selections. We struggled to determine colors and exterior finishes, but with the designers help, we were able to choose elements that completed the overall look and feel of our home.

Every home built by Authentic Custom Homes is distinctly different. The small details they incorporate into their designs set them apart from other firms. You’re going to get exactly what you want in regards to design and quality. People will know you have an Authentic Custom Home before you even tell them, so you can have peace of mind knowing you’re getting a quality product.
