Update from Doug Stimple, CEO, Classic Homes
July 16, 2020: As you are likely aware, Governor Polis issued a mandatory statewide mask Executive Order requiring all individuals over the age of 10 years old to wear a face mask or covering when entering, exiting or moving within any public indoor space. The Executive Order is currently in effect for 30 days and may be extended. Classic Homes is in full compliance with this order and the face mask requirement will continue to be in effect at our corporate office, model homes, design studio, customer homes, and on our jobsites.
Under the Order, the following individuals are exempt from wearing a face mask:
- Children under the age of 10 years old.
- People who cannot medically tolerate a face covering.
- Hearing-impaired or otherwise disabled or who are communicating with someone who is hearing impaired or otherwise disabled and where the ability to see the mouth is essential to communication.
- Seated at a food service establishment.
- Exercising alone or with others from the individual’s household, and a face covering would interfere with the activity.
- Receiving a personal service where the temporary removal of the face-covering is necessary to perform the service.
- Entering a business or receiving services and are asked to temporarily remove a face covering for identification purposes.
- Are actively engaged in a public safety role such as law enforcement, firefighters, or emergency medical personnel.
- Officiating at a religious service.
- Giving a speech for broadcast or an audience.
The guidelines of this Order are in addition to the precautions and public health safeguards set forth in “Phase 2 of the Safer at Home” Order, which essentially reinforces the practices that we, at Classic Homes, have been practicing. Understanding that we all must be diligent in doing our part to flatten the COVID-19 curve, Classic Homes is currently operating with various restrictions in place to protect the health and well-being of our customers, employees and trade partners.
Classic Model Homes:
- Our models are staffed and open by appointment for both virtual and in-person meetings.
- Should you choose an in-person appointment, please respect social distancing and limit the number of people who attend scheduled appointments to only those listed on the contract.
- Face masks are required in all indoor spaces.
- You will be required to do an infrared temperature check and complete a sign-in form and waiver at each scheduled appointment.
Classic Design Studio:
- For precautionary purposes, we will continue to meet with you in a predominately virtual meeting environment (phone & email, Facetime, and GoToMeeting web-based meeting platform) until such time we are comfortable and feel it is safe to fully open the showroom for in-person appointments.
- We will continue to conduct first appointments as virtual meetings; second appointments may be held in-person or virtual; all subsequent appointments will be virtual.
- If you choose to conduct your second appointment in person, please respect social distancing, arrange for child-care, and limit the number of people who attend the appointment to only those listed on the contract.
- Face masks and gloves are required.
- You will also be required to do an infrared temperature check and complete a sign-in form and waiver.
Homes in Construction:
- If you have a scheduled walk-through or other appointments with your Builder and/or Sales Counselor, we encourage those of you who wish to do so to schedule a virtual appointment.
- Should you prefer to keep your in-person appointment, you will be required to wear a face mask, and respect social distancing during your appointment.
- For those of you who are not comfortable with either option with respect to your “New Home Presentation” walk-through and your “Welcome Home Orientation” final walk-through, your Builder will walk your home, create a punch list and agree to reschedule your final walk-through to a later date following the closing of your home. We will extend any applicable warranty.
- We do ask that closings be conducted as scheduled.
We encourage you to stay informed by visiting the following helpful links from the State of Colorado’s website:

Thank you for your cooperation and for working through this difficult time with patience and grace.
