Laura Schillmoeller has plenty of reasons to be thankful for the brand-new townhome she bought in February 2017. Located within the Lexington Crossing community in Rolling Meadows, Illinois, Schillmoeller’s 1,700-square-foot home has an open-concept floor plan with a half-bath downstairs and two bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms upstairs. Schillmoeller shares her home with her 15-year-old daughter, Charlotte, and their dog, Knuckles.
“My daughter and I lived in a big, old vintage home that was more work than I wanted to deal with and filled with some not-great memories,” Schillmoeller says. “We decided to get a fresh start, so that was what prompted the move.”
