Simple. Efficient. Practical. Those are the words Eric and Monica use to describe their new forever home.
Our team had the opportunity to build an accessibility ramp for a local Aurora family. Partnering with the Home Builders Foundation, we’re grateful for the chance to restore some freedom and accessibility for this family.
At Parkwood, we’re dedicated to helping you build not just a home, but a house that feels like your home. That’s why we work hard to give you the freedom to design your home for the way you live. Here’s how we helped Jackie build hers.
Each year, the Home Builders Foundation hosts their Blitz Build event, where volunteer teams help build wheelchair ramps for residents around Denver. This year was our first time participating, and we had the wonderful opportunity to build a ramp for Ahmed, an eleven year-old boy in Aurora suffering from muscular dystrophy.
It was 2013 when the idea for Boston Street Gardens first came to mind. Inspired by their separate trips to Old Louisville, Heidi Majerik, who worked for Forest City at the time, and Parkwood’s Steve Wilcox and Jack Fleury brought the historic neighborhood’s timeless charm from Kentucky to Colorado. In part three of our series on Boston Street Gardens, we look at how this little sub-neighborhood turned into reality.
Finding the right home is more than just having a nice house to live in. It’s also about being part of a larger community. For Part Two of our series on Boston Street Gardens, we met with Parkwood homeowners Dave and Nichelle to find out how life feels different in this neighborhood and, of course, get a glimpse inside their stylish, cozy Newbury townhome.
From rendering to reality, Boston Street Gardens has been nearly 3 years in the making. With a playful bocce ball court, charming wrought-iron benches, and a narrow street running through it, it was designed to bring neighbors together.
