The “Don and Todd” Story

The brothers Pohlig, Todd and Don, bring to life the great American tale of “local boys make good.”  Both graduated from Monsignor Bonner High School, with Todd joining the Army upon graduation from Villanova University.  Don, the younger, had such a hunger to work that he went to work with John Falcone’s house framing company on the day of his high school graduation (instead of going to the ceremony!)  He soon started his own framing company and built challenging contemporary houses instead of the “boxes” of that day.  Todd dreamed up Pohlig Builders when he was in the Army, returned home and started the company in late 1974.  Read the full story>>

Admittedly, the common human predisposition is to reject change in all its forms, even on those occasions when we know it may lead to a positive outcome. The truth of the matter is change is scary, specifically because of the fear of the unknown and the uncertain. It is also true that change is inevitable, so the only method for coping with change is to address it head on and to embrace the moment.

In this way, many baby boomers often struggle with committing to their decision to “rightsize” their life, primarily due to the misconception that “rightsizing” is synonymous with “downsizing.” Yet, many lifestyle communities, such as Athertyn at Haverford Reserve, prove that preconception wrong through their offerings of condominium homes with plenty of space for new beginnings without the slightest sense of sacrifice.
