Ichijo Breaks Ground for 28 New Homes at Ten Trails in Puget Sound

BELLEVUE, Wash. – Oakpointe Communities is pleased to announce that Inchijo USA recently broke ground on its model duplexes. The company has plans to build 28 individual duplex homes at Ten Trails – half of them in 2019 and ranging in size from 2,132 to 2,320 square feet. Each home will feature three to four bedrooms and two-and-a-half bathrooms, with pricing determined at a later date. Ichijo also has expansion plans beyond the duplexes for additional individual homes.

“Ichijo is excited to construct our energy efficient, innovative contemporary homes at the newest master planned community in the Puget Sound area, Ten Trails!” says Ichijo USA President Akinobu Ohno. “We are proud to be showcasing our latest designs alongside some of the best builders in the Pacific Northwest.

”Ichijo is known for its eco-friendly and innovative building practices, including panelized construction, dual-sliding windows, sleek contemporary interior doors with metal inlay, 10-degree, short stroke door handles, and magnetic door stops. The open kitchens are particularly well-designed with piano finish cabinetry, built-ins that include adjustable tray dividers, knife holders and trash/recycling wagons. Each cabinet door features earthquake safety lock hardware and kitchen cabinet shelving that drops down for easy access along with spice racks that pull out for easy viewing. 

All Ichijo homes at Ten Trails will feature high quality wall-panel construction, pre-assembled with wall framing, windows, weather barriers, furring strips, two-inch additional exterior insulation and rainscreens to improve material durability, water management and obstructing heat gains – all designed to improve indoor air or environmental quality. Each Ichijo home will be built solar ready so that panels may be included with the purchase of a home or added at a later date. Ichijo is aiming for Built Green certification for its Ten Trails homes with features designed to achieve roughly a third in energy cost savings.

Southeast of Seattle and Bellevue, Ten Trails is designed for families and residents who embrace the outdoors and modern comforts. The community offers outdoor activities, parks and trails, technologically advanced and amenity-filled homes each with true 1 GB internet speed. As the Ten Trails population grows, the community will offer designated areas for up to seven schools, a retail village featuring shops, eateries and services that people will frequent daily, and free Wi-Fi throughout the community – all this and access to major metropolitan areas while living in a close-knit community.
