Ted Mason has been building in the Treasure Valley since 1991 and his reputation for quality, integrity, style and affordability precede him. Ted’s homes combine practicality with gorgeous lines and finishes. So, of course he is the perfect fit for designing our Creekside Patio Homes.
Ted thoughtfully designed our patio homes to include every luxury of our larger homes but on a more manageable scale. From the charming front porches and courtyards, to the low maintenance stucco and fascia/soffit elements, and the great use of space and upgraded woodwork throughout. There is nothing to be desired in these jewel boxes.
You’ll also feel the comfort with Ted’s reliable construction, 3 year warranty and energy performance. Every Ted Mason Signature home is Energy Star Certified and go above and beyond with high HERS ratings, saving energy consumption and better yet, money. Ted Mason’s Signature Homes are achieving HERS index ratings in the 50s and 60s! Compare that to the US Department of Energy’s findings that a typical existing home scores about 130, standard new homes (built to current modern energy standards) have a rating of about 100, and Energy Star Certified homes must go beyond the current standard energy code and achieve a score of 80.
Ted and our team are excited to work with you and help you through every step. With an in-house interior decorator and an in-house drafter as part of every home build package to ensure that your finished house will match your dream. Ted’s team has the home-building process down to an art form, making the experience of personalizing your new home a pleasurable one. He is also known for staying personally involved with every home buyer at every step. When you meet Ted in person you’ll understand that his commitment to excellence comes from his desire to create not only a superior product but also friendships that last a lifetime.

The HERS index is the nationally recognized system for inspecting and calculating a home’s energy performance. The rating system starts with a certified Home Energy Rater assessing the energy efficiency of a home, assigning it a relative performance score. The lower the number, achieved after exhaustive on-site testing, the better (in theory, a score of 0 means the home consumes zero energy).
According to the US Department of Energy, a typical existing home scores about 130 on the HERS index. A standard new home, built to current modern energy standards, has a rating of about 100. A home built in 2013 must go beyond the current standard energy code and achieve a score of 80 to be Energy Star Certified.
All Ted Mason Signature Homes, Inc. homes are achieving ratings in the 50s and 60s. The most recent 5 homes scored 56.
