This is a new model home in Daybreak, a planned community in South Jordan (about 35 minutes from downtown Salt Lake City). With the exception of some urban townhomes and condos, Daybreak homes haven't been modern, but they're all Energy Star. However, Garbett Homes had some home designs put together by KTGY Group and built two of them as model homes. This is Style A (see Style B). These modern homes will be replicated with different interior and exterior options on a street in Daybreak.
The Style A home is 1,442 square feet with an optional 670 square-foot basement. It's priced from $206k, and the various options and upgrades hit you in the wallet. Plus, Garbett Homes can build it, from what I hear, in a quick 30 to 45 days.
Like the Style B model, Style A has deliberately placed windows, which gives it a fresh, clean, bright, and homey feeling inside. The model also includes some of the following green elements: rooftop photovoltaic system (standard with purchase), a cool white roof, Hardie board exterior, dual-pane low-E windows, R-19 walls and R-38 ceiling, high efficiency furnace, and Energy Star appliances. It's a beautiful little home …
