Paul Shoopman, president of Paul Shoopman Home Building Group, Inc., was a freshman in high school when he started his career in the home building business as a framing crew member. After gaining experience in the industry all through high school, shortly after graduation he built his first custom ranch home in Center Grove.
“The house and its one-acre lot sold quickly for a whopping $34,500,” Shoopman says.
Since then, Shoopman, who acts as home builder, developer and architect for each project, has gone on to become a leading homebuilder in Central Indiana, and over the past five decades has constructed approximately 10,000 new homes in Zionsville, Westfield, Noblesville, Fishers, Greenwood, Brownsburg, Avon, Greenfield, Indianapolis, Danville and Carmel, including the new Waterfront of West Clay — premier lakefront homes for sale.
“I’ve also personally gone on nearly two million onsite construction site visits for satisfied families with the same love and attention I had as a young man,” Shoopman adds.
Throughout his career, Shoopman has held true to the same guiding principles — to prioritize and value his employees and partners and to be loyal to those around him. That’s partly why he has been awarded the Better Business Bureau’s (BBB’s) Business of Integrity Award, which recognizes a business with fewer than 11 employees and displays an outstanding level of ethics and integrity in all business dealings.
In addition, Shoopman has been the recipient of the prestigious Sagamore of the Wabash Award by Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb. The company has also received the Foundation Builder Award from 2-10 Home Buyers Warranty. Shoopman is the only builder in the state to have earned 2-10’s Diamond Builder Award for superior craftsmanship and customer service. He attributes his success to the loyal and solid relationships he has created along the way — not only with clients but also with vendors and contractors he works with regularly.
“I have been with valued partners for as long as I have been in business,” he says. “In fact, I can’t think of any other builder who has the kind of support and long-standing relationships I have with many employees, subcontractors and suppliers.”
Waterfront of West Clay: Homes For Sale on the Water
Shoopman specializes in Indianapolis waterfront homes. He is thrilled to be bringing luxury lakefront property for sale with his latest development, Waterfront of West Clay. Located on the north side of 116th Street, east of Michigan Road and just minutes away from downtown Carmel and downtown Zionsville, the 95-acre community features plenty of green space and a gorgeous 30-acre lake, perfect for kayaking, sailing and bass fishing.
Shoopman offers custom waterfront homes for sale around Indianapolis on residential lots with either lake or wooded views. Waterfront at West Clay offers 95 home sites at three different home types, locations and price points by creating the Retreat, the Peninsula and the Island.
For those seeking a ranch design, The Retreat is ideal as it offers a spacious floor plan and ample outdoor relaxation. These home prices start from the $600,000s. The Peninsula section offers both two-story and ranch designs, three and four-car garages, with optional daylight lots available. These homes start from the $700,000s. The extra-large estate lots reside in the Island section and provide homeowners with a pristine view of Big Bass Lake with daylight walk out and wooded lots.

Amenity options include floor-to-ceiling windows and doors, large open kitchens, great rooms, dining areas, garden baths, arched doorways and a choice of walk-out or daylight basements as well as open or screened-in porches overlooking the lake. The builds are some of the best homes for sale on the water in Indianapolis.
“We are delighted with this new community for those wishing to live in the Carmel and surrounding Indianapolis area,” Shoopman says.
