Mom’s Dream Kitchen

Irontown Homes offers upscale, efficient kitchen design in a small package.

The “Ultimate Kitchen Home” built by modular builder Irontown Homes might be small, but it packs a punch.

The home was on exhibit this year at the Professional Builder’s Show Village in Las Vegas. The 595-square-foot home is a single-module pool house design with a guest bedroom and bath, along with a lounge and seamless indoor/outdoor living. The kitchen takes up more than half the total space at 300 square feet—so it’s no surprise that a lot of stylish tech such as stainless-steel appliances from JennAir can be found within.

“Jenn-Air appliances have loads of options I’m not even aware of,” says Kam Valgardson, general manager of Irontown Homes, based in Spanish Fork, Utah.

For example, the oven/microwave combo features V2 vertical dual-fan convection heat from multiple sources within the oven, which ensures an even cook. It also has a full-color menu-driven LCD.

The low-profile canopy island hood ventilation system has LED task lighting and an Auto Sense option that automatically turns the system on and adjusts to compensate for higher cooking temperatures.

The counter depth refrigerator boasts sequential dual evaporators that allow independent temperature control, reduce common food odors and keep humidity at optimum levels in both the refrigerator and freezer.

The rest of the home also has Schluter-Systems Ditra-Heat electric radiant flooring, LED lighting, Kohler plumbing fixtures and Fujitsu ductless heating and cooling.

The cost of all these technologies was built into the house, but Valgardson estimates they took up about 20 percent of the total construction cost.
