Introducing Delmer Lakes in Edmond: A Family Affair

January 16, 2019

We’re always excited to announce the start of a new community. It means so many families will find a new future! Homes by Taber is doing it again, introducing Delmer Lakes in Edmond, but this one has special meaning. 

Homes By Taber began in 2000 as the result of a special partnership. Taber LeBlanc and John Delmer Alexander, put their shared vision into action, to create a homebuilding business that did more than build nice homes in the Oklahoma City metro area. They wanted to give their customers a truly satisfying experience, from the moment they decide to buy or build a new home, to when they move in, and even farther than that.

Sadly, John passed away years ago, but his legacy carries on. Shortly after this loss, Taber purchased a beautiful piece of land in Edmond, just north of Covell Road, not far from John’s home. He knew this area would someday become a Homes by Taber community. He also knew it would be something very special.

A tribute to John

Delmer Lakes is named for John. “Delmer” is also French for “from the sea”. With the lake that exists on this land, the name seemed more than appropriate.

In keeping with honoring family, the streets in Delmer Lakes carry the names of family members who have impacted Taber’s life. Dudley Drive, Weldon Way, Owen Way, Clevenger Drive, and Armstrong Avenue—they’re not names, but people. Important people.

The entry to Delmer Lakes is also meaningful. John had a large pond put in behind his home in Edmond, and he built a windmill there. He spent many hours sitting by his pond and looking at the windmill as he reflected on life. We’re constructing a windmill at the entrance to Delmer Lakes, hoping it will remind us of John and bring a smile to the residents who appreciate the significance.


Our Happy Homeowners

As a home inspector, I come across Taber-built homes frequently. Without exception these inspections are somewhat boring for me as there just isn’t a lot to find. Today, for example, a new build broke my inspection record for fewest deficiencies. They just build solid, efficient homes with great features. Highly recommended!
