Back in 2011, when our families met, it was clear we shared the same values and appreciation for home and the outdoors right from the start. Working with some of the leading architects around the country, together we created The Earnhardt™ Collection of home plans. Each plan was designed to bring nature inside the home by incorporating various architectural elements like vaulted ceilings, exposed beans, large windows, natural elements and open floor plans. Each home represents a special person or event in the lives of Kerry and Rene’ while providing a personalized retreat from everyday life, in a relaxed environment.

What began as a business venture has developed into a great friendship-one that I truly value. We have shared some great times together from Model Home Grand Openings, sporting adventures to a milestone birthday of mine at Charlotte Motor Speedway. It doesn’t get much cooler than spending your birthday with Kerry Earnhardt in a racecar. Kerry and Rene′ and their entire family are one of the great All-American families- authentic, grounded with an appreciation and respect for their heritage.

If you’ve ever wanted to live in a home inspired by nature, this collection of award winning home plans was designed for you. Learn more about Schumacher Homes and the Earnhardt™ Collection at

Thank you, Kerry and Rene,’ for inviting me to be a part of your blog!
