Less than one month after start of the Waldo Canyon Fire, the Boyd family who lost their home to the fire that blazed through the Mountain Shadows community has begun the rebuild process at their lot on Yankton Place, naming Classic Homes as their choice builder. On July 25th (coincidentally the Boyd’s fourth wedding anniversary), the couple became the first residents of Mountain Shadows to begin building a new home on their lot. With demolition and cleanup already in progress, Classic Homes has plans to begin work on the new foundation the week of July 30th. The Rebuild Team at Classic Homes appreciates the significance of the building permit for the Boyd’s family home as the first step in moving forward. “Classic Homes in pleased to be in a position to help our community begin to focus on rebuilding and healing.” stated Doug Stimple, CEO of Classic Homes.
In the days immediately following the fire, Classic Homes strategically assembled a dedicated Rebuild Team, lead by Project Manager Jim Boulton, to work exclusively with homeowners who lost their homes. Having built more than 10,000 homes in the Pikes Peak Region, Classic Homes came up with a thoughtful plan for the company to respond quickly and efficiently to those affected by the fire. After every disaster, whether a hail storm, a tornado, a hurricane, or a fire, a large number of people and companies begin descending on the city to try and benefit from the tragedy – with the sole intention to make a quick dollar and then move on to the next opportunity. Classic’s mission with this project is to curtail that type of activity from happening in Colorado Springs. For over 20 years, Classic has been known as one of the area’s most respected builders in the areas of quality craftsmanship and customer service so it’s not surprising that they would step up to the challenge of assisting residents of Colorado Springs – the community Classic Homes is proud to call home. The dedicated team of industry experts in the fields of construction, insurance negotiation, interior design, and customer service understands that the demanding task of rebuilding and recovering has just begun. The team’s goal is to help ease the burden on homeowners who are beginning to face tough decisions and challenges. As a 20 year veteran of the local homebuilding community, Classic is able provide significant support and guidance in navigating the appropriate course of action toward rebuilding. But, regardless of whether homeowners decide to make use of the services provided by Classic Homes or not, it is strongly encouraged to utilize the services of a local, credible company.
As part of Classic’s dedication to this community, they have joined forces with the Pikes Peak Community Fund and will provide $5,000 per reconstructed home into an existing non-profit foundation for the sole benefit of rebuilding the affected neighborhoods in Colorado Springs. “Mountain Shadows is a wonderful neighborhood and we are eager to not only begin rebuilding homes, but also begin restoring the community.” said Stimple. “We will contribute the entire fund to restoring parts of the community that no one is specifically responsible for, such as signage, trees, landscaping, and overall neighborhood beautification.” Classic’s commitment to this community goes deeper than rebuilding the homes that were lost. They also recently developed a lot purchase program to assist homeowners who, for whatever reason, do not wish to rebuild on their current homesite in Mountain Shadows. The lot purchase program is one more way Classic believes the company can assist homeowners as they navigate through the journey of restoring their lives.
