Hero Worship

The Panasonic WhisperGreen Select™

The Panasonic WhisperGreen Select™

The Bathroom Fan You Never Knew You Needed So Much

We don’t like to throw the word “hero” around. Yet, every once in a while, you hit gold with a product that in its quiet, unassuming way, has its acre of the world figured out.

Let’s talk about what a bathroom fan does.

  • Odor Control: I mean, let’s face it. Isn’t that the main reason we flip the fan switch?
  • Fume Reduction: Cleaning agents release invisible, powerful chemical compounds that could potentially harm our health. Our bathroom exhaust systems whisk those away.
  • Moisture Reduction: Too much humidity causes paint and wallpaper to peel, wood to warp and mold to grow. Fans suck moisture out of the home, protecting it from damage.

But most fans are noisy and if you turn them on, that’s all they do is make noise!

Schumacher Homes has partnered with Panasonic to offer the WhisperGreen Select™ customizable, all-in-one fan in its homes.  What’s so great about it? Why do we talk like it wears a cape of lightening and rides a unicorn?

“First of all, it is completely customizable,” says John Becker, New Product Manager for Schumacher Homes. “You can set it for however long you want it to run at high speed after leaving the room, or if you want it to run at high speed at all – like during warm months when you can ventilate with an open window.”

Rated Most Efficient!This 2016 Most Efficient Energy-star rated fan runs at continuous low-level ventilation to improve indoor air quality with a boost to full speed to exhaust odors and moisture as needed. It comes with an optional motion sensor too, so it knows when someone uses the bathroom and runs the fan for you when you need it most.

“Panasonic’s WhisperGreen-Select fan offers Pick-A-Flow™ technology that enables homeowners to select required airflow for the size of each bathroom,” says Jeff Klonowski, Indoor Air Quality Specialist of Panasonic. “In addition to the motion sensor, it offers 3 other Plug ’N Play modules, so you can automatically control speed, moisture, even a night light.”

Why Schumacher Homes and Panasonic?  Because both have the highest quality standards.  Panasonic’s warranty is double the industry standard, and the WhisperGreen-Select with a 6- year warranty is testimony to the quality we strive for at Schumacher Homes.

We all need a hero in our lives. If the WhisperGreen-Select helps keep our bathroom cleaner, the air in our homes safer, and our décor intact without us thinking or hearing about it, then that’s a hero that gives us peace of mind.

Your Imagination Has a Home – The Blue Ridge

The Earnhardt Collection™ Blue Ridge by Schumacher Homes

The Earnhardt Collection™ Blue Ridge by Schumacher Homes

René Earnhardt discovered her love of nature through her spirited play in the Blue Ridge Mountains. She ran through the mountain forest wielding a stick as a sword. Streams of sunlight guided her path like a spotlight to secret passages. She’d trade bits of her granola bar with the squirrels for their stories, and she’d follow the sounds of nature — rustling bushes, twittering birds — to find fairy kingdoms.

"To this day, I think my love for nature and the outdoors comes from having the Blue Ridge as a backdrop for my childhood. Even now, when we drive through Virginia, there’s just nothing like it.” – René

“To this day, I think my love for nature and the outdoors comes from having the Blue Ridge as a backdrop for my childhood. Even now, when we drive through Virginia, there’s just nothing like it.” – René

That imaginative spirit is reflected in the design of the Earnhardt Collection™ Blue Ridge by Schumacher Homes.

“My fondest memories growing up were spent in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia and this home design captures the essence of the grandeur mountains I so fondly called home,” says René. “We wanted to create a home that captures that spirit of fantasy – of possibility – that you feel when you connect with nature.”

“Growing up in Virginia, it didn’t take much to fall in love with the Blue Ridge Mountains. I remember driving up and down the Blue Ridge Parkway and looking out at all the trees stretching as far as I could see in every direction."

“Growing up in Virginia, it didn’t take much to fall in love with the Blue Ridge Mountains. I remember driving up and down the Blue Ridge Parkway and looking out at all the trees stretching as far as I could see in every direction.”

Kerry and René have a sincere love for life in the outdoors that is clearly reflected in the plan for the Blue Ridge. This single-story home features a multi-gabled elevation and is anchored by a huge central great room that flows to both the kitchen and the dining area. Open and spacious with lots of windows, the great room is sure to become your family’s favorite gathering place. But when it’s time to retire, the spectacular owners’ retreat will provide a comfortable space to relax and rejuvenate. Perhaps the most striking features of this NAHB Gold-Award Winning home are its abundant natural light and intriguing architectural elements.

Like all Schumacher and Earnhardt Collection™ homes, everything is customizable. So, if there is something you’d like to add or take away, you’re only limited by your imagination!

Our New Construction Open House Mascots are Pawsome


Darwin (left) and Dexter are the pampered pooches of homeowners Shelbie and John Flegal. Shelbie works as a firefighter/paramedic and John is in the Army. The couple received Schumacher Homes Hometown Heroes Discount! You can follow their build on Instagram @sbriggs13.

 And They Want You to Attend an Event Near You!

Meet Darwin and Dexter. Every week, they survey the build progress of their owners’ Santa Barbara. Like their owners, they agree that pawsitively the best way to see the quality that goes into a Schumacher home is to visit one under construction.

Plenty of room to run around and play! (Dexter for scale)

Unlike most builders, Schumacher Homes lets you off the leash to do just that.  We call it an Under Construction Open House. It’s our way of sharing our build process with you. Whether we’re in framing, drywall, trimming or the final stages of building a Schumacher home, you’re welcome to come in for a tour. Our events are led by Schumacher builders who can answer any questions you might have — so go ahead and dig for details!

Walk the floor plan, get a feel for room sizes and how the homes flow. You may choose to go to several to see construction in the various stages. Take the time to touch the materials, and ask plenty of questions. Ask about what features were included in the baseline price of the home. Ask about customizations and consider all the pawsibilities for your home.

Dexter says this frame will support many years of squirrel watching.

Pay close attention to the quality of the materials. Quality products and materials fetch a better return on your investment. Check the mechanicals, which include plumbing, electrical, and heating and cooling.

Your new home should exceed your expectations in craftsmanship and standards of quality. Ask the builder about his attention to detail. Have him explain how he’s different from the competition. Talk to him about his accessibility during the build process.

Think we’re barking mad? Then we’ll let the humans tell you. Watch homeowners David and Eleanor Reed on why you should attend a Construction Open House.

While we clearly love pets at Schumacher Homes, please respect our hosting homeowners by leaving your furry friends at home.  

Your Serenity has a Home – The Hummingbird

Schumacher Homes

The Earnhardt Collection™ Hummingbird by Schumacher Homes

Anyone remember the Seinfeld episode in which Frank Costanza screams “Serenity Now!” as a means of lowering his blood pressure? That phrase became one of the most memorable from the show because in the rat race of all of our lives, we can all use a little, “Serenity Now!”

And perhaps no family knows more about life in the fast lane than the Earnhardts, and that’s where the inspiration for the Earnhardt Collection™ Hummingbird by Schumacher Homes was born.

“Like everybody, we keep a crazy busy schedule, and with all we have going on with the kids’ schedule, and our schedule, and family and friends, it feels like we’re just flying 90 to nothing all the time, like a hummingbird,” says René. “For us, our home is our retreat. It’s the one place we can relax and regroup and just be together. For us, Hummingbird was a reminder that no matter how fast we’re flying, there’s always something ‘sweet’ about coming home.”

The Hummingbird floorplan was one of the first designs built when we launched the Earnhardt Collectionin 2011. The Tinsley family that built in SC, gave René and Kerry at tour of their custom Hummingbird, which they built as a retreat to get away from the hustle and bustle of fast pace life and relax with family friends.

Step through the front door of Hummingbird, and you will know you are home. The openness of the kitchen, great room and dining room are magnified by the spectacular two-story cathedral ceiling that makes the home feel enormous. Downstairs, you’ll enjoy a private owners’ retreat with a beautiful bath and two huge closets that are completely separated from the other two bedrooms upstairs. But you’ll still feel connected thanks to a spacious upstairs loft that looks down on the great room and dining room. You’ll also enjoy a roomy front porch—complete with your very own hummingbird feeder.
