Building since 1994, Walt Schumm C.D., LLC’s quality construction and superior customer service have continued throughout the last 27 years. That commitment is evident in their newest Oldham County development, Farmhouse Estate. “Our construction business has been well established and is now multigenerational with the intention to stay a part of the community,” says custom builder, developer, and Realtor® Walt Schumm. Walt has lived in Oldham County for over thirty years, served on the school board, and revitalized area neighborhoods after the housing crash of 2006-2007. “The company started by developing subdivisions and now works on custom market homes with high-end features and attention to detail.”

With proximity to Crestwood, I-71, I-265, and Hwy 22, Farmhouse Estate combines the convenience of quick commutes with the tranquility of large lots, mature trees, and even some water views. “We put a lot of thought into each detail from the beginning to the end. Our attention to detail ensures the quality of your home throughout time,” says Walt. “We don’t just build on lots we’ve found to be available—we create the unique setting for your home from the ground up.” The modern farmhouse development features many fall-away lots for walkout basements, private mature tree lines, city water, natural gas, and high-speed internet. Each home has a unique look befitting its owner’s style. The exclusive 30-lot development of Farmhouse Estate will sell out quickly, and Walt expects it to be finished out by 2022. “Because of demand, we have two similar developments in Oldham County: The Estates of Ballard Woods (opening Spring 2021) and Grand Oaks, both with large mature tree lots, privacy, and custom homes.”

Walt Schumm and his son Ryan “are personally involved with every home build” from “land development, design, and construction to ownership.” Because they live in their developments, their customers are also their neighbors. “We build every house like it’s our own.” Walt and Ryan go above and beyond for a better customer experience. They embrace both modern technologies along with tried-and-true old-school techniques such as stick framing and dimensional lumber, using the best products and vendors for the past nearly twenty years and counting.

“My vision is to continue building with integrity, high-level customer service, and communication. The key to the growth of our business is building relationships with our customers,” says Ryan. Additional plans for the company include affordable multi-family housing in Oldham County. Accord- ing to Walt, “We are invested in the land and our community. We live here, our children and grandchildren go to school here. We are invested in local nonprofits to strengthen families, and ties to the community will ensure that your investment has longevity.”
