Development of a LaTEX custom chapter style

I need a custom chapter style for the document I am working on. Currently the headings are formated with fancychap - Bjarne style. Based on the Bjarne style a custom chapter style needs to be developed. fancychap formating will be disabled and the custom style will be used instead.

Format changes:

* thechapter is not to be written in words use numbers instead on one line (e.g. CHAPTER 1)
* All headings have to use a custom sans-serif font

Current status

* Not all headings use the custom font yet
* The title page does not use the custom font yet
* At the beginning this looked like a task I could manage but as it turns out my LaTEX knowledge is not deep...
