Here’s a picture of the latest home we started. This one is going to have quite the view. Notice the rocky soil, this one didn’t take much work to get a good pad to build on. Some areas of town have soils that require more work than others. Many parts of town require an over-excavation of three to four feet; meaning we dig down well below where the foundation will go, re-compact the soil, sometimes replace it with better soil, have it tested by a soils engineer, then continue on with our foundation. In some parts of Cedar City it is required that as much as six to eight feet be excavated and re-compacted while other more hilly and rocky areas don’t. We’re always happy to help with any questions people may have while looking for a lot to purchase.
Big pantries are a very popular item on many of our home plans that we’re building. We’ve been doing some type of pantry in almost all of our homes. This pantry that we did in a home recently included a prep sink, granite counters, and a sliding ladder to reach to taller shelves. A bigger pantry leaves the kitchen clean and uncluttered.
