Lauren McCaleb of Chicago has been chosen as the 2011 Taylor Morrison Dream Home Giveaway winner, beating out more than 1.1 million entries to claim her $200,000 grand prize. And McCaleb plans to build that home at Adora Trails in Gilbert.
McCaleb, a mother of two and grandmother of four, said she and her husband, Richard, initially couldn’t believe her good fortune, which was delivered via voicemail on her home phone.
“I’ve listened to the message at least 10 times,” McCaleb said. “It’s hard to believe that I’ve actually won. I had to make my husband read it for himself on the computer the other day. He wasn’t buying the whole thing.”
The couple chose the Valley over Austin, Texas, and Sarasota, Fla.
