Kerry Earnhardt’s Earnhardt Collection™ Homes Recognized Nationally
Special collection of homes wins two awards at 2013 International Builders Show

LAS VEGAS (Feb. 8, 2013) – The Earnhardt Collection™, a signature series of homes designed by Kerry and René Earnhardt in collaboration with Schumacher Homes, earned two gold awards at the 2013 International Builders Show in Las Vegas. The event celebrates innovation, creativity, and excellence in architectural design.

The Earnhardt Collection™ earned the award for Best Architectural Design for its Blue Ridge floor plan. It also won the category of Best Special Promotion for its work in the Earnhardt Collection™ grand opening last year. The awards were presented by the National Sales and Marketing Council of the National Association of Home Builders.

“Congratulations to everyone involved with the Earnhardt Collection™,” said Kerry Earnhardt, older brother to JR Motorsports’ Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Kelley Earnhardt Miller. “Schumacher Homes and the Earnhardt brand run parallel with quality and success. René and I are very honored to be a part of the Schumacher team and proud of their recognition for excellence of the Blue Ridge design from our Earnhardt Collection™.”

The Blue Ridge model home in Asheville, N.C. is the first model of Schumacher’s Earnhardt Collection™. It features wood timber ceilings, stone architectural accents, an inviting outdoor kitchen, and a wall of windows to bring in natural light. These signature homes were designed with a focus on the love of the outdoors.

“These 22 homes were designed for relaxed, comfortable living in a home that feels like a family retreat,” said Paul Schumacher, owner and founder of Schumacher Homes. “Each home was inspired by the strength and beauty of the outdoors and represents the affordable, quality construction that’s made Schumacher Homes the largest custom homebuilder in America.”
