David Kaelin and his family were living in Norton Commons when they began thinking about finding a new place to call home.
“We were spending a lot of time on (the other side) of town,” he explained. “We were doing a lot of back and forth.”
He and his wife, Alena, decided to look for a piece of property to build a brand-new house for them and their six children.
“We wanted something inside the Gene Snyder and really couldn’t find anything,” David said. “We wound up, just happenstance, driving through here and saw a sign for sale. This was the sixth section of Pine Valley Estates, and the developers were selling it.”

They met in January 2017, just as she was prepping for a new home build.
“I was getting ready to build another house (on my own) before I met him,” she said. “My parents had just moved from Chicago to Kentucky and my dad said, ‘You don’t want to build that house — this guy is sticking around.”
Her dad was right — the couple got engaged that April and were married by July.
“We each had a home to sell (to) combine our lives together,” Orlando Zanni said. “He had a
