Autism Awareness Month

Schumacher Homes Supports
Autism Inclusion and Acceptance Programming

Autism is the fastest growing and most severe developmental disability in the U.S. today, but behind all these numbers are real people – millions of children and adults.

During April, Autism Awareness Month, Schumacher Homes will donate a portion of all home sales to programs that promote autism inclusion and acceptance. By building your dream home today, you’ll also help build friendships and understanding.

Get started by viewing our home plans.

Why Do We Have to Increase Home Prices?  

Hero_ActFastWhy is a price increase necessary? The rise in cost boils down to two primary reasons.  

  1. DSC_0131Material prices are increasing due to a 30% tariff on all Canadian lumber coming into the country. All home building forecasts show that this tax hike has no foreseeable end.  
  2. We’re working against a nationwide shortage of skilled labor. As America’s Largest Custom Home Builder, we maintain an attractive package for trade partnerships, with a consistent level of work for the best skilled laborers.  However, due to the shortage, the price of labor still continues to increase.   

Schumacher HomesWe want you to get the most home for your money. That’s been Paul’s vision since he began Schumacher Homes. We encourage you to act now to save thousands on your new custom home. In addition to the above affecting cost, our potential homeowners also should be aware of the pending Federal Reserve interest rate hike. Economic forecasters are anticipating this sooner than expected due to the current wave of economic optimism. A hike may come as early as mid-March, with projections of two additional rate hikes this year.

Your Passion has a Home: Earnhardt Collection Speckled Trout

Speckled Trout

The Earnhardt Collection Speckled Trout

Every home has a story. With NASCAR kicking off this weekend in Daytona and spring fishing season right around the corner, we celebrate The Speckled Trout, a Schumacher Homes Earnhardt Collection™ home named for Kerry and René Earnhardt’s youngest son Jeffrey.

René says like a Speckled Trout, Jeffrey is always on the move for the next big adventure, even if that means swimming against the current to reach his goals. Kerry seconds that, saying it’s true that Jeffrey never stops moving and from the get-go has been flush with the independent Earnhardt spirit.“All Earnhardt Collection™home plans are special to us, but the ones named in honor of our children have a special place in our hearts,” says René. “His love for the outdoors and passion to experience life to the fullest made it easy to name this home ‘Speckled Trout.’”

Perfect for a lot with a great back yard, Speckled Trout is a wonderfully spacious floor plan that tucks the family living areas in the back of the home. Speckled Trout has a great open flow between the kitchen, dining area and great room highlighted by a two-story ceiling in the great room. The upstairs owners’ retreat features a huge bedroom, beautiful bath and a large walk-in closet. Plus, there’s a roomy upstairs loft that can easily become a third bedroom. There’s even an over-sized, offset porch in the front that adds to the home’s distinctive personality.

“Jeffrey let us know early on that like me, his uncle, his grandfather and his great-grandfather, he would be following in the family racing tradition, and he has,” says Kerry. “He’s a great driver, and we couldn’t be prouder of him.”

At Schumacher Homes, we always say, “Your Inspiration has a Home.” For Jeffrey Earnhardt, we can say his passion has a home. Find the home where your life will unfold.
