The Crawford Creek new home neighborhood is proud to complement a prime Columbia County location with a fine host of homes and amenities.  You can now enjoy a spectacular fun filled “staycation” without ever leaving the luxuries of your new Ivey home.

The soothing sounds of the waterfalls will draw you outside to the community’s much anticipated “Resort” style amenities area.  Here you will enjoy the CSRA’s first ever rock structure community pool with waterfalls and a lap lane, a tiki hut picnic pavilion, kids play area which includes bucket spills, water squirting elephants, and mushrooms to play under.

Our community walking trails offers the ability to stay active and connect with nature but if you’re looking for a party, you can start your own with daily access to the neighborhood picnic pavilion featuring several outdoor grills, a fire pit, and playground.

The Manor @ Crawford Creek offers not only the latest in floor plans and home styles but also the area’s first Solar Ready community.  Fantastically priced from the $190’s, you can either choose a home from our fabulous inventory or pick your plan and home site in which to begin personalizing your very own Ivey home.

What’s Your HERS?

Categories: Energy Efficiency | Posted: June 28, 2012

While you wouldn’t buy a car without knowing what the MPG is, why would you buy a home without knowing what its energy rating is?

When purchasing a new home in Augusta, Georgia it’s easy to get caught up in the things that you can see.  While the fit and feel of the home is important to your enjoyment of the home, the real quality of the home is in how it’s built.  Determining how it’s built is difficult unless you’ve been trained in construction and you’ve watched the entire process.  That is why at Ivey Residential we use a third party verification system to make sure that certain systems of the home are constructed to the highest standards and then these systems are scored based on national criteria.

The scoring system is called HERS, Home Energy Rating System.  It identifies the home’s energy performance compared to new homes and older homes.  The lower the score the more energy efficient the home.  A typical new home built to 2004 energy codes has a score of 100.  A typical existing home has a score of 130.  An energy efficient home has score in the mid-80’s.  Ivey Residential builds all of our homes to the rigorous Energy Star 3.0 standards and we have an average HERS score around 70.  This makes us 15% more energy efficient than a standard energy efficient home, 30% more energy efficient than a standard new home, and 60% more energy efficient than an older used home.

On all Ivey homes look for the Energy Performance Guide (EPG) and compare our homes to our competition.  For more information on how we build our homes, visit our website www.iveyhomes.com and look for the iveyWise™ button.  We also have a dedicated room in our model at Canterbury Farms showcasing what we do behind the walls.
