New Duplexes in Ten Trails
Ichijo has broken ground on their new duplexes being built near our community park. The Japanese builder is well-known for their modern-style homes built in the Seattle area as well as the number of innovative technological features included in their homes. The new Ichijo duplexes at Ten Trails will feature piano finish cabinetry with pull-down shelves, spice racks, adjustable built-ins, architectural grade dual-sliding windows, and contemporary interior doors which include metal inlay, ten-degree short stroke handle and magnetic stop doors.
Green Home Builder
Ichijo is a “green” certified home builder and has certified a number of homes as “5-Star Built Green” through the Master Builders Association of King and Snohomish Counties. This distinction means their home projects are certified energy-efficient, using sustainable materials among other stringent building criteria. Ichijo is hoping to achieve the Built Green certification at Ten Trails with features on the new duplexes like the additional two inches of exterior insulation on each home–beyond what is required on building codes. The insulation is included on the exterior of the high-quality wall panel construction that is pre-assembled with wall framing, windows, weather barriers, furring strips, and rainscreens. The energy-saving features allow for up to a reported one-third energy savings on new homes. Homeowners also have the option of upgrading to solar power systems in their new Ten Trails duplex. Each home will be built “solar ready” so solar panels can be added with the purchase of a home, or in the future
New Models Opening This Spring
Work is being done on these new homes right now, with two model homes to open in Spring 2019 so you can see all these great technological features in person! Follow Ten Trails and Ichijo on social media for updates on this new section of the community!
