The Nelson's

Keith and Julie Nelson's home in Woodbury's Dancing Waters development is their fourth house - the third one they've built. "It had been about 15 years since we'd built a home, but needed more room for our children and grandchildren when they visit," said Keith. Their previous home was also in Woodbury. "We had updated our house as much as we cared to," he stated, "and decided we wanted something new. We wanted a second-floor laundry, and a lot more cabinetry." They chose Dancing Waters two years ago because "We wanted to be in one of the city's top developments," explained Julie. "We really like the development, especially for its resale potential. We like the amenities, too, such as the community pool and the 'neighborhood' feel. "We also like the development's use of sidewalks," she continued. "Kids don't need to play and walk in the street. And the front porches on many of the homes remind me of my grandmother's home - very old-fashioned." The couple had planned to build a rambler, but ended up with a two-story home with a walkout. It has four bedrooms and three baths. The unfinished basement has room for another bedroom and bathroom. "We visited a lot of Parade of Homes houses, and narrowed down our choices," said Julie. "We liked McDonald Construction's homes, and all the customers we talked to were happy with their houses. "Our choice was a spec house, and had all the features we wanted," she said. "It has nice looking cabinetry - in almost every room in the house - and granite countertops. We like the rear walkout to the patio."
