Heber Valley Home

Centurion Homes was proud to be the Utah General Contractor on this beautiful one-of-a-kind 5,640 square foot home nestled in the Heber Valley.  This sprawling rambler was built all on one level with soaring 20 foot vaulted ceilings.  While excavating for this home three natural springs were uncovered 18-30 inches below ground level.  Because of the exactness required by the owner in the positioning of this estate home, building elsewhere on the 10 acres wasn't an option.  After consulting with soils and structural engineers we devised a way to make use of the unearthed challenge.  The result was a foundation built on top of a French style drain system bedded in 4.5 million pounds of rock & gravel graduating from 3-4 inches in size at the bottom to 1/2-3/4 inch at the top, compacted at each material size change.  The drain system now flows 7-10 gallons of water per minute to a pump location.  It is then used to supply irrigation for the 4 acres of landscaping as well as the pond for 6 acres of pasture.  In the end we were able to use ingenuity to make use of an excellent natural resource, found right underground.

This home turned out beautifully and the setting cannot be beat, as it overlooks the Wasatch Back mountain range.  Centurion Homes was happy to become the general contractor on this project by referral. We aim to exceed the expectations of each and every one of our clients.  Our clients are so impressed with the way their project is handled and with the end result that they refer us to their family, friends and acquaintances.  A referral is the the highest compliment Centurion Homes can receive.  We would enjoy becoming your family's builder.  Call us today to discuss your next project big or small 801-722-5515.  We pledge to bring your project in on-time and on-budget.
