Helping the planet helps your pocketbook when you build an Ivory Home. Take a look through our listings. Not only are our homes and developments designed to be environmentally friendly, they are designed to be appealing and to appreciate in value over time.

EV Ready homes are the latest innovation to improve sustainability by reducing the negative air quality impacts of your home. With an average Home Energy Rating System (HERS) score of 53, new Ivory Homes are 25% more efficient than code requires and 50+% more efficient than a home built ten years ago.

TIME FRIENDLY: Spend less time maintaining and more time enjoying
Like a water faucet that drips, your electrical appliances leak energy and cost you money, even when turned off. Use power strips with appliances at night and when you go on vacation.
Don’t buy another powered appliance, try a ficus. Grow aloe vera which is good to have on hand in case of sunburn and/or spider plants, which are hard to kill.
Reduce water use around the house by turning water off whenever possible and running washing machines and dishwashers only when they are full.
Cut your grass to 3” or higher to prevent weeds and retain moisture. Keep your blades sharp and leave your clippings in your lawn to add nitrogen to the soil.
Use a bucket and sponge instead of a hose to save water when washing your car. A hose can waste 6 gallons a minute if you leave it running.
Maintain your lawn mowers, snow blowers, chain saws, leaf vacuums and similar outdoor power equipment to reduce nitrogen oxide emissions. Switch to electric to save on emissions, oil and gas.
As part of our new effort to further establish us as an eco-friendly and sustainable homebuilder, and in conjunction with the Clark and Christine Ivory Foundation, we have partnered with TreeUtah and UCAIR to plant 30,000 trees across the state of Utah.
As part of this initiative, 20,000 trees will be gifted to communities across the state while 10,000 trees will be planted in new and existing Ivory Homes’ communities.
Join our Tree Initiative by letting us know where we should plant trees by filling out the application below.
To meet our goals, we need and want BIG ideas!
