Cougar House VI to Help Fund Athletics

PROVO -- The Utah Valley Home Builders will be joined by Eagle Mountain's mayor, the Lehi City Chamber of Commerce, the Eagle Mountain Royalty and representatives from Brigham Young University Athletics for the ribbon-cutting ceremony to officially open Cougar House VI, on Thursday, May 4, at 10 a.m. in Eagle Mountain.

This year's Cougar House, a 2,500 square-foot home, is located at 3732 East Turnberry Road in Eagle Mountain and includes three bedrooms and two bathrooms. The house is the sixth the Utah Valley Home Builders Association (UVHBA) has built and donated to benefit BYU Athletics. The selling price is $260,221.

Cougar House VI will be featured in this year's Utah Valley Parade of Homes, which runs May 6--20. For more information about this house or the Parade of Homes, visit www.utahparade.com or call Steven Moyes at 830-5420.

The Cougar House is annually made possible by the generosity and talents of local professionals in the land development and home construction industries. The building lot for Cougar House VI was donated by Scott Kirkland of Sage Communities and Jimmy Zufelt and Gary Monteer of Zufelt Monteer Builders.

The home was built in The Ranches in Sage Communities' beautiful Showdown subdivision. More than 60 members of the Utah Valley Home Builders contributed labor or materials to build the home.

The proceeds of each Cougar House are used to endow athletic scholarships for BYU student-athletes. With the projected funding from Cougar House VI's sale, the Cougar House project will have generated more than $875,000 for BYU Athletics.

Past Cougar Houses have been built throughout Utah County: Cougar Houses I and V (2001, 2005) in ArrowStar's Camelot Village Development in Springville, Cougar House II (2002) in The Ranches' Simpson Springs Subdivision in Eagle Mountain, Cougar House III (2003) in Traverse Mountain's Chapel Bend Development in Lehi and Cougar House IV (2004) in the Ercanbracks' Legacy Estates Development in Provo.
