Split-Level Open House Tour

by Paul on April 18, 2014

One very important step in selecting the proper floor plan design is the configuration of your lot. When you are contemplating purchasing a lot, before you sign on the proverbial dotted line, contact us for a free site evaluation; our builder will meet at the lot and help determine if the home you have selected is the correct one for the property.

Our home owners building the custom Sycamore A split-level made use of this service when planning their dream home; their lot was ideal for this architecture, after the standard plan was reversed. The garage entry is at grade level, and the living area steps up to follow the slope of their lot. Some changes were made to their home design with the addition of a half bath adjacent to the recreation room; this bath is also conveniently placed near the entry from the garage. The fall of the lot also made a natural drain possible.

A cathedral ceiling was added in the great room; a storage area was placed under the stairway. Upgrades were made to the cabinets, kitchen island, exterior, and owners’ retreat bathroom; and don’t miss the wood-burning fireplace in the great room. Since this home is in the trim stage of construction, not all of the finishing items are visible at this point of construction.

Register to attend this construction open house on April 27th from noon ~ 2:00 PM at 1483 Lake Front Drive, Salem, OH – you’ll see first-hand how our builders work closely with our customers to ensure that their finished home has curb appeal and is constructed with quality as top priority!


DOUBLE Your Pleasure…TWO Open Houses!

by Paul on April 17, 2014

If you are a follower of our blog, you know that we are constantly promoting our construction open houses; these events allow our customers to see in person our homes during the custom home building process. I’m happy to invite you to attend TWO open houses on April 26th from 10 AM ~ 2 PM. Our customers are both building  custom homes across the street from each other; both homes are split-bedroom one-story homes, both in the final stages of construction. The featured homes are the Asheville A and the Barrington A; they are located at 137 Cross Road and 133 Cross Road, Lexington, SC.

Both homes have custom changes from the standard floor plan design, however, the customizations were few; both families opted for great room fireplaces and covered screened porches on the rear of their homes. In the Asheville A, the owners’ suite was redesigned, adding a second lav sink and a 4′ shower. The customers building the Barrington A revamped the kitchen layout, adding to the island and re-positioning it to face the great room. The flex room of the Barrington A has been designated as a living room. Both families opted for wall-mount utility sinks in their laundry areas and shower units replace the standard tub/shower unit in both owners’ baths.

I hope you take this opportunity to view two custom Schumacher Homes – register today to attend!

Throwback Thursday – “Our” Habitat House, Revisited!

April 3, 2014

I’m not sure which person suggested that we participate in a Habitat for Humanity project, but everyone was excited at the prospect of helping a family build their very own home. This was [...]
