We'll file this in the un-substantiated rumor bin for now, but Wensmann Homes has apparently ceased operations as of last Friday, a tipster reports.
We've managed to confirm the Star-tribune is working on a story, so there's definitely some sort of fire beneath the smoke.
What's unclear as we write this is whether Wensmann has indeed shuttered, or filed bankruptcy, or in some other version of operational life support, or they've simply hit a rough patch and will continue operations in some form.
Wensmann homes, founded in 1968, was the 12th largest builder (by revenue) in the Twin Cities as recently as 2005.
