Coastal Living, I’On Group
and, Structures Building Company
celebrated the groundbreaking for the 2009 Idea Home on Jefferson Canal in I’On. Ten years ago, Coastal Living built its first Idea Home in I’On on Sowell Street. Now the prestigious lifestyle publication is coming back to the neighborhood to celebrate a decade of success.
The Idea Home will be built by Structures Building Company, an I’On Guild Custom Builder that was 2007’s Builder of the Year. Steve Kendrick, Structures Building Company Owner says, “as a 10-year resident of the neighborhood, I’m proud to be building this unique home and excited to see the Jefferson Canal project come to fruition in I’On. It is a great opportunity to showcase our green building techniques and spread the word about the economic, environmental, and health benefits of living in a sustainable home.”
The home, located on a reserved property in the heart of the neighborhood, will feature Caribbean style architecture and a uniquely private courtyard. The home will be completed and open for tours in late July through mid-October.
“Many people mistakenly think that the neighborhood is complete. But there are almost 100 homesites that have not yet been built upon,” said Vincent Graham
, President of I’On Group. “The selection of I’On for the 2009 Idea Home is a further testament of the enduring appeal of walkable neighborhoods. Over the last ten years I’On has evolved and improved as each new home adds value to the whole.”
