Earth Advantage® Certified

Our homes are Earth Advantage® Certified. Earth Advantage is a third-party, high-performance certification program for new single-family homes developed to assure homeowners that a certified home is energy efficient, healthy, and resource wise. This is available for Ichijo homes in the Portland area.

No More Hide and Seek

Our custom-made cabinets aren’t just beautiful on the outside. Each one includes efficient organizers to keep everything in view when you need it and make it disappear when you don’t. Included in all Ichijo homes are adjustable tray dividers, knife holders, spice racks, trash/recycling wagons, under cabinet lighting & earthquake safety lock cabinet door hardware.

Within Reach

o All of our homes come with Ichijo’s own high-quality, piano-finish cabinetry with full extension soft close and BLUM hardware as well as cabinet pulls on all cabinets and drawers. Our pull-down shelves eliminate the need for a step stool to reach the top shelf.

Hold the Door

It may seem like a small detail, but our magnetic doorstops are always there to offer a helping hand. These low-profile assistants conceal themselves in the floor when not in use, but they are always ready to help in a snap.

Outta Sight

Ichijo’s dual-slide doors make it easy to fill up and hide it all away. The doors slide both ways so it’s easy to reach in the corners of your closet!

Total Comfort

The Nest learning thermostat monitors your home even when you’re away, making sure you maximize comfort and energy savings.



Many of Ichijo’s homes are solar ready so you can add solar panels with the purchase of your home or in the future. Our typical solar systems cover a third to all of the home’s energy needs.
