Building Your Home

Choice and Personalization

Homebuyers prefer Ivory over other Utah home builders because of our superior locations, exceptional designs, quality construction, and commitment to service. At Ivory Homes we have refined the building process to be as simple as possible for new home buyers. Ivory is dedicated to giving our buyers the best and most personalized homes on the market. Ivory's Design Centers offer hundreds of options and our expert designers, architects and sales consultants work one on one with buyers as they pick the features and elements that will soon make up their new home. While many builders attract buyers with lower base costs that don’t include much, Ivory’s basic package options include many items and features that would be considered upgrades elsewhere. At Ivory Homes we love being able to help buyers create the home of their dreams with the highest quality materials and options available. Browse our website, visit our decorated model homes, or drive through our carefully planned communities for a taste of the possibilities.

Closing is the finale to your new home! This is an exciting time and when new chapters are written. “During the closing phase future home owners can expect the following:”

Pre-construction

During the preconstruction meeting, you will meet with your sales consultant and architect for a final review of your floor plan and options. Together, you will verify the placement of your home on the lot and review the plans.

Foundation

The first step Ivory Homes takes to building quality homes in Utah is the foundation. Before excavating your foundation, your superintendent will stake the layout of your home on the property. After staking and setting your home, excavation will begin. Ivory Homes will then dig the hole and install the footing and foundation for your home.

Framing

With the completion of the foundation, framing will begin and your new home will really start to take shape. After the framing is complete, the electrical, plumbing, and heating/air conditioning utilities will be installed. During this time several framing and utility quality checks are completed by Ivory and city inspectors.

Four-way Inspection

Once the utilities have been installed and we have completed the city inspections, your superintendent will invite you to come on site for a four-way inspection. It is called a four-way inspection because you will review four main construction areas: rough framing, plumbing, electrical wiring, and heating/air conditioning systems. Your superintendent will walk you through the home and help you understand the layout of the utilities prior to being covered with drywall.

Finished Carpentry

After your four-way inspection and the installation of drywall, finish carpentry will begin. During this phase, door casings, baseboards, cabinets, countertops as well as many of the lighting fixtures, carpet, HVAC and plumbing finishes will be installed. What was once just a structure begins to look more like a new home. While many activities are occurring on the inside of your home, the outside of your home can become an equally busy place. The exterior of your home will begin to get its covering of stucco, brick, siding or stone. These various layers all function differently, yet all work together toward a common goal: to keep the elements out while providing a beautiful exterior appearance.

Homeowner Orientation and Completion

You will be amazed at the amount of finish work that takes place in the last few weeks of the construction of your home. The transition from a construction site to a beautiful new home really comes together during this time. Toward the end of the home building process you will have a Homeowner Orientation, also known as a Final Walk Through. This is an opportunity to walk through the home with your superintendent, who will familiarize you with the many features and functions of your new Ivory home. Within just a few days, your home will be ready for closing. The next time you walk into your new home, it will be to stay.

Your New Home

Upon completion of you're home, you'll experience the joy and excitement of moving in. We understand that this can be a busy time and our goal is to make the transition to your new home as smooth as possible. Ivory Homes wants all of their new home buyers in Salt Lake City, Washington, Davis and Utah Counties to have a stress free move in and an enjoyable experience.

Closing

As part of our one-stop shopping, Ivory Homes works with an on site title company that conducts the closing, title and escrow services for your home. In order to simplify the process, your sales consultant and mortgage officer will accompany you to your closing and be available to answer any questions you might have throughout the process.

Move-In

Two days after closing, you will pick up your keys. This of course is the most memorable day of the process as you move in to your lovely new Ivory home!

Ivory Warranty

Our promise to you is to build a beautiful, comfortable and functional home that you can enjoy for years to come and we stand by that commitment 100%. To ensure you have the peace of mind you deserve as you move into your new home, we provide you with the best 10-year warranty in the business.
