Homeowner Spotlight

Fitness Influencers, the Bomgren’s, purchased our McDonald Model during the Fall Parade of Homes in 2022!

Lindsey Bomgren of Nourish Move Love Certified Personal Trainer, Group Fitness Instructor, and Pre/Postnatal Training Specialist. She founded Nourish Move Love in 2015, an online publishing company that creates free home workouts for women.

She lives with her husband and 3 kids (ages 6, 3, & 1). Here is a little background information on why the Bomgren’s decided to buy/build with McDonald.

We purchased our first home with the intent for it to be our 3-4 year starter home…7 years and 3 kids later we had definitely outgrown our space and needed a bigger home for our growing family. We had been looking for 2-3 years and could never find the right fit. So we were contemplating building, but then we found this model. It checked all the boxes so we decided to do a quick run-through (we literally had 5 minutes to tour the home before we had to get to the airport to catch a flight)….we fell in love and knew this was our forever home. It’s been such a blessing to have more space and we’ve absolutely loved hosting friends and family in our new home (something we’ve wanted to do for years)!

This classic coastal shade of navy, can freshen up your exterior and achieve a crisp, coastal look with sharp white trim.

Sherwin Williams Naval

We’ve embraced dark, moody colors to create a striking contrast with the warmth of natural materials and Trespa, a low-maintenance wood-look siding.
