Building a Forever Home
by Sarah Taylor
Ryan and Delonnie Henry were traveling around the U.S. in their Airstream Globetrotter when they found their forever home in the 2,000-acre community of Red Ledges, located just minutes from Park City. “We had a very clear list of everything we wanted,” says Delonnie. “After looking at homes in Red Ledges, we realized that it checked off all the boxes for us.”
Surrounded by stunning views of Mt. Timpanogos and home to the unique red rock formations that give Red Ledges its name, the luxury mountain community offers easy access to world-class skiing, outdoor adventure, year-round activities, and the Salt Lake International Airport. From luxury mountain homes to two private Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Courses to exclusive Deer Valley Resort ski access, Red Ledges embodies Utah’s coveted mountain lifestyle.
In addition to a vibrant clubhouse and world-class amenities, Red Ledges has developed their own in-house homebuilding team, Red Ledges Homebuilding, to elevate the level of quality in the community and to ensure an exceptional building experience for its members. Red Ledges Homebuilding makes it easy to create your dream home and live the life you want in four easy steps.
“We found the process surprisingly enjoyable and confidence-building.The advocacy that you get from Red Ledges Homebuilding was really impressive.”

Pick the perfect homesite
Since land dictates the design and structure of the home, finding the right homesite to complement your vision is the most important part of the homebuilding process. The Red Ledges Sales team works in conjunction with the Homebuilding team to ensure that you find the perfect homesite for your home.
Kelly and Patrick Acevedo, another family who chose to make Red Ledges their home, chose to build with Red Ledges Homebuilding after walking homesites with their sales agent and Rex McGuire, Vice President of Operations for Red Ledges Homebuilding. “Rex walked the lots we were considering purchasing and helped us envision the potential homes we could build,” says Kelly. “It was easy to see his passion for building in this area and we knew he was the one who could best help us build our dream home.”
Design your dream home
After your homesite has been purchased, the Red Ledges Homebuilding team will collaborate with you to bring the vision of your home into reality. Red Ledges Homebuilding partners with some of the best architects and interior designers in the area, plus the on-site design studio makes the process of selecting finishes streamlined and easy.
Once the Henrys found their ideal homesite, they worked with the Red Ledges Homebuilding team to start designing their home. “We met with the interior design team at Red Ledges in the studio, which was very easy, no running from store to store” says Delonnie. “They showed us what certain choices were within our budget. They had a variety of flooring, carpet, fixtures, etc., and I told them what kind of appliances I wanted.”
Professionals do the heavy lifting
Once the design and selection process is complete, construction begins. The Red Ledges Homebuilding team has decades of experience and their management team is committed to providing effective communication and concierge-level service throughout the construction of your home, even if you are located outside of Utah.
Both the Henrys and the Acevedos were out of the area during the construction of their homes and the excellent communication and clear expectations from the Red Ledges Homebuilding team kept them confident in the progress of their projects.
“We found the process surprisingly enjoyable and confidence-building,” Ryan Henry states. “You have weekly meetings throughout the process and most of ours were over the phone or Zoom. They would show you photos of the progress made each week, so you really feel like you are on top of it. The advocacy that you get from Red Ledges Homebuilding was really impressive.”
“We liked the ease of building with Red Ledges,” says Kelly Acevedo. “They were always available for questions and weekly update calls, which were quite helpful as we were in Florida most of the time.”
