Five years of friendship. Five years of fun. Five years of beautiful, nature-inspired home designs. This month, the Schumacher family celebrates their amazing five-year partnership with Kerry and Rene Earnhardt on the Earnhardt Collection™ by Schumacher Homes.

Walls of windows, exposed timbers, and natural elements that bring in the outdoors create a stunning setting in every Earnhardt Collection™ home. These homes are made comfortable, for friends to gather in the open spaces and families to enjoy the coziness of each other’s company. Each home even has a story 
unique to a special moment in the Earnhardt family’s life, some of which we will be sharing on this blog all month long!

Neutral color schemes are found throughout with many natural elements, including reclaimed wood and brick, giving this home a warm, earthy feel. Clean lines are featured in both the contrasting colored grout as well as in the wall and ceiling detail. The nature theme is continued through a creative full-size wall mural in both children’s bedrooms.

The large kitchen and dining area are wide open to the great room, which is ideal for entertaining. A large walk-in pantry will keep everything organized. The mud room is the perfect landing place for muddy paws of the four-legged and two-legged variety. The turned staircase overlooks the two-story great room and leads to the two, second-floor bedrooms. Other unique interior features of this home include:

  • Schumacher Homes Madison B Pantry

Your Imagination has a Home: The Earnhardt Collection Blue Ridge

The Earnhardt Collection Blue Ridge by Schumacher Homes

The Earnhardt Collection Blue Ridge by Schumacher Homes

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

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.

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!
