 The Snow Creek Cottages are architecturally designed and professionally planned to afford buyers physical integrity, environmental protection, functional usage, visual compatibility, and high value ownership in Park City. This project provides for integration with the unique existing infrastructure, local ambiance, and appearance. All the elements that make up contextual visual appropriateness have been addressed and a complementary neighborhood will be achieved.  Only about one third of the maximum land density has been occupied and the individual tax burden on new owners should be minimized.

All homes are designed to be certified under the new 2008 National Green Building Standards adopted in January of 2009, and for compliance with current energy efficiency concerns, minimization of waste, and long-term sustainability.  The Snow Creek Cottages are a new model and indication of what might be accomplished throughout the country.   Home designs provide for:

  • Photovoltaic panels providing up to 40% of required power needed
  • Ground source heat transfer systems
  • Structurally Integrated Panel (SIPs) framing of walls and roofs
  • Minimization of building envelope to reduce heat loss
  • Installation of “energy star” appliances and equipment
  • Non-volatile finishes and components
  • Incorporation of recycled materials
  • Solar generated hot water
  • Recycling of waste materials
  • An abbreviated construction period
