What winter this has been! Even if you aren’t a winter person, you can’t help but appreciate the magic that a consistent snow brings—even if you stay hidden under a heated blanket until the snow starts to melt. With snow, though, comes a little hindered progress. Home builders and construction workers aren’t able to do as much as they planned on during these days, but maybe it will allow some backed up resources more time to get delivered. We can sacrifice a few days work for some snow admiration. We have no problem with that.

Now how about a progress report? First, our oldest development that is still in the works: Bay Country. We now only have 5 lots left, all of which have a water view. Who wouldn’t want to build there? Right off of 119th and Central in Wichita, you get the Goddard School District without having to sacrifice proximity to Wichita shops, restaurants, and events. We currently have 4 builders to choose from for this development: Keystone Construction, Beverlin Custom Homes, Moeder Construction, and Vision Homes. Although we do not currently have any specs available for viewing, we do have homes in our Goddard development, Arbor Creek that you can walk through and build in Bay Country.

Speaking of Arbor Creek, this development is movin’ and groovin’. The lots are selling quick and the specs are selling even faster—many don’t even get out of the framing stage before they are snatched up. If you aren’t familiar with this community, it is located off of 183rd and 23rd (Pawnee). It is in Goddard School District; matter of fact, it is right next to Amelia Earhart Elementary School, with walking paths from the community to the school to make sure children get to and from school safely. While we are still building in phase I, this development is truly flourishing. We have our monument built, trees being planted, and walking paths that go through the natural landscape. Once the weather clears up, we recommend taking a look out there. You just might fall in love and decide you want to build.

The final update is with Estanica; we started phase III in September and have been making lot sales and home plans since. This development is in Maize School District, located at 37th and Ridge Rd. It has optimal access to K96 without being so close that it sounds like cars are driving through your living room. Estancia also is truly coming into bloom, with its native grass restoration progressing nicely, like its sister development, Fox Ridge.

So why build in a Schellenberg development? Well, as stated with the Estancia updates, native grass restoration is one of the key characteristics of a Schellenberg development. SDC takes pride in the fact that they don’t just destroy natural landscape and vegetation with plans to replace it all with mulch and sod. They do their best to restore the native grasses, flowers, and trees, which allows the development to become more and more beautiful as it ages. SDC also designs all of its communities with safety and longevity at the very top of the priority list. Streets are placed with turns and curves to not only enhance the natural landscape rather than cut through, but to also create a “speed bump” without the nuisance of an actual speed bump. The curves in the streets make it difficult for cars to speed through the developments, keeping you and your children safe as you take a walk through your neighborhood. In addition to these curves, safety is key with limited access points into the community. Their neighborhoods are not gated, but by limiting access points, the cars going to and from can be better monitored.


Don’t just build your home in any community. Build in a Schellenberg development and Experience the Difference.


Stay warm, everyone.
