Utah's Modern ResourcesPosted by Creede Fitch at August 19. 2005
The best part about being part of a larger cause is that you get to inherit all the knowledge of the group. I am excited to share all my local favorite stores, and more importantly to learn about yours. I am sure that there are lots of great resources here that I just don't know about yet. So, let's here it, what are yours favorites?

All you Utahians should be aware of [url href=http://www.irontownhomes.com/index.php]Iront Town Homes[/url] the manufacturer of the affordable [url href=http://www.livemodern.com/Members/SaraSage/blog]Sage Modular Home[/url].
You have a modular factory ready and willing to do modern designs right there in your backyard. You are luckier than you may realize! :grin:

Brent, I would love to get together with you sometime and talk, email me and let me know when works best for you. Also if you need any help with the utahmodern website let me know, I just installed forums on my website, so I might have some valuable advice for you.
Lavadera, I know about Ivory Homes, and it is very exciting. I told Sara I was more than happy to go take pics of her home for her before it ships, we'll see if she takes me up on it.
I guess since we are talking about wonderful resouces, we should all go check out Brents website http://www.jespersendesign.com/ . Its great that we have a firm that focuses on classic modern architecture exclusively. I didn't even know about it until this week either, but from what I read on the site, it looks great.

I'm afraid it got delivered and installed when you weren't looking! There is nothing to take pictures of unless you want to drive to LA.

I took a look at your web site and I am curious, roughly what your houses cost to build per Sq. Ft.? I have been interested in finding Modernist resources in Utah and this is the first time I've seen anything on the web. I'm glad to know there are other people in the area interested.
You say you are building a loft type space around liberty park. Is this an in-fill type of thing or are you converting a buildign that is already there? Give us more details.
liberty project failed.
existing owners would not sell.
still looking for property in sugarhouse area.
many close calls. nothing just right yet.
loft and residential stuff still happening.
lots of building to come to slc.
not a lot in modern.
hopefully it will change.
doing what we can to bring some quality projects to market.
jespersen design just participated with dwell in their upcoming supplement for regional resources. coming out as an insert in the august? issue.
i think we will see a few UTAH MODERN RESOURCES in the dwell design source insert coming out this summer.
i'm happy to relay resources i know about in utah to members and inquiring minds....

As a former Utah resident, I'm very happy to see some modern influence moving in there. When I was there, I lived in a house that is very modern, and sold it to a man who has made it his life work to turn it into a beautiful modern gem. It is on Evergreen Lane, off of 3300 South near Highland Drive, not far from Sugarhouse. If you're interested, I may be able to contact him to see if you could see the house. You can't see much from the street -- it is at the end of a cul-de-sac. Good luck to you!

I won't bother with any intros just yet. There is a very interesting modern dwelling that is going up in my neighborhood (Sugarhouse). It is about 1600 East and Blaine, which is about 1750 south. You can't miss it. I believe it is inhabited now, and although it looks fabricated, I would guess that it is not. The house fits in to the odd lot well. I'll go spend some time on the intros page now.
