Example text

His wife’s parents, God bless them both, lived as if they were wealthy and the entire family thought they were until they died nearly flat broke. No one suspected. They had a condominium worth less than $30,000, a Ford Taurus worth $3,000 or $4,000, and a bunch of worthless costume jewelry. Little remained after it was all over. Kephart realizes that his family is not necessarily typical but what is fairly typical is the longer life span the parents of boomers are now enjoying. Kephart suspects their enjoyment is somehow tied in to spending any possible inheritance that their children may have expected prior to the current recession.

Author Kephart opines: I realize that the community concept is “all about lifestyle,” but the architecture should at least equal the quality of that lifestyle. In my opinion, the home designs in The Villages fall short of that goal. Since The Villages community is being developed and built by a family company, there is no opportunity for small builders to participate, but it’s different in many communities around the country. Mega Communities Aren’t for Everyone One size doesn’t fit all, nor is it always wise to try to offer something for everyone.

The intent of the original plan at Stapleton was to mix home sizes and price ranges throughout the community in the way some older neighborhoods evolve over time. Small lots were originally platted next door to bigger lots, and corners were reserved for manor homes or courtyard clusters. The concept was later modified to group samesized lots block by block. Homebuilders were having trouble staging their work and marketing their homes when construction was spread out over several city blocks with two, three, or even just one home on each block.
