Oldham County Builder Walt Schumm Ballard GlenStart your home shopping by touring our quality craftsman homes in Ballard Glen today! Our noted Oldham County Builder has made building or buying your custom home easy! You can choose to be as hands-on or hands-off as you’d like. We have many design options to add on, or you can also choose to go with our standard features which blow away others you’ll find in new homes.

To begin, browse through our home designs, choose a homesite, and choose your options! Don’t forget to visit Ballard Glen in person…we’re sure you’ll find your place to call home as soon as you arrive!

After choosing your homesite, the next step is to reserve your location by placing a deposit. Acting quickly is important, as premium homesites go quickly and we only have a limited number of lots available in Ballard Glen. Not ready to move right away, but still want to reserve your favorite lot? That’s no problem! You can choose your lot now and build when you’re ready.

We have several models open at any given time, with immediate entry available. Please call 593-7421 for entry details.
