When military veterans Nick and Shelby Nelms and their family move into the new home being built for them by Wilshire Homes in Round Rock’s Paloma Lake, they will be surrounded by words of support and inspiration written into the very walls.
Wilshire Homes, in conjunction with Operation Finally Home, offered the community an opportunity to thank the Nelms for their sacrifices in defense of the nation during a “Notes of Love” signing event Aug. 4.
From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., visitors used spray paint, chalk, and sharpies to offer their gratitude and love on the studs of 2705 Diego Drive before it was covered in drywall.
Later that afternoon the Nelms, checking on the progress being made on their new home, were overwhelmed by the support demonstrated by the community.
Wilshire is building the home, which is slated for a November completion and dedication ceremony, in conjunction with Operation Finally Home — a non-profit organization that is dedicated to providing custom-built, mortgage-free homes for disabled or ill veterans and their families.
Nick and Shelby Nelms met while in the Army and both served in Afghanistan. The couple was on a mission in 2011 when Shelby’s truck was hit by an improvised explosive device (IED). An Army medic, Nick ran to the truck and pulled Shelby to safety. The pair married later that year upon returning from Afghanistan. They now have two children and still suffer from combat-related ailments.
Wilshire Homes builds in Austin and San Antonio, garnering a number of state and national product design awards along the way. In addition to Paloma Lake, the builder is active in 14 Austin-area communities. Details about Paloma Lake are available at http://www.wilshire-homes.com/austin/palomalake/communities.
