Lennar has ranches ready to go in age-55-plus Inspiration

Homebuyers looking to make a long-term move out of the house they’ve lived in for a generation are facing a market this fall that nobody could have imagined — way too little inventory, the lowest number of homes available ever recorded for this month, at a moment when older places sell in just a few days. Meanwhile, Lennar has two ranches you’ll see today in age-55-plus Inspiration near Parker that are not only ready to go, but priced very close to what the average resale house was selling for in metro Denver last month.

“You’re going to see ranch floor plans designed for the way people live today,” says Lennar’s Matt Bond, who along with Sou Phiavong will show you the newest models, along with inventory homes that could have you moved in by the time your old place is set to close.

Bond says buyers arrive at Inspiration from a market where pickings are slim — resonating with these large ranch plans that have wide-open entertaining areas, and spaces for specialized needs including home offices.

And despite their large size they likely offer simpler maintenance responsibilities than you’re used to in your old place.

Take, for instance, a ‘Hamilton’ 3-bedroom ranch that Lennar has ready, close to Inspiration’s new Watering Hole Park. It delivers just short of 1,900 sq. feet of finished space, plus a

Tornado-damaged Home Depot is rebuilt and ready to open a year later

Just shy of a year after a tornado destroyed their Home Depot, employees who escaped being hurt are ready to reopen a rebuilt store that incorporates the home improvement retailer’s latest ideas.

Home Depot store that was damaged in a tornado on Oct. 20 on Forest Lane in Dallas.

The new Home Depot opens Thursday at its original spot on Forest Lane just east of North Central Expressway. Ten tornadoes on Oct. 20, 2019, caused $2 billion in damage to homes and businesses in Dallas, Richardson and Garland.

Store manager Jonathan Shields said about 50 of his former employees are back, and the store has hired another 150 people and plans to add as many as 50 more.

Three of Shields’ four assistant store managers returned, including Jordan Jasper, who made the fortunate call to send his co-workers home early on Oct. 20 after hearing the weather forecasts and likely saving some lives.

Jasper was honored at a ceremony attended by 500 area Home Depot employees a week after the tornado hit. He was awarded the store’s U.S. flag that survived the damage.

“We’re getting many of our associates back in the building, and we’ve developed a tight bond after going through the experience,” said Shields, a 17-year Home Depot veteran who was manager of the store for a year before it was hit.

After the tornadoes, Home Depot placed its employees in 14 stores that were closer to where they lived, and many of those workers decided to stay at those stores. Part of Shields’ job initially was to reach out to former employees and meet with their new store managers.

Some former employees who aren’t coming back have been promoted, including one assistant store manager who has moved to a
