It’s no wonder this new community is already generating so much buzz!

Olson Homes proudly boasts multiple energy and environment friendly features. Our commitment is so deep-rooted that we even strive to make the process of building these homes as green as possible! California’s Title 24 legislation requires certain restrictions on Open and Closed circuit cooling cycles, energy efficiency, and lighting. Our homes typically not only meet these requirements, but exceed them by at least 15 percent! That’s great for the environment, but it’s also great for homeowners’ wallets, who see substantially reduced energy bills as a result. We achieve those standards through utilizing white dual glazed vinyl windows with low e glass, highly water efficient toilets and faucets, auto shut-off motion sensors in the bathrooms, tankless water heaters, carbon monoxide detectors, and energy star appliances, among many other green building features.

A quick walk through any given community by Olson Homes is enough to convince anyone of the quality of our homes and become one of the many friendly and fulfilled faces that make up our communities. Tapestry Walk promises to be all of that and so much more.

One of the best parts of living at Tapestry Walk is the chance to live in beautiful Anaheim, California. With a centralized location near centers of employment, exquisite dining options, and plenty of fun for the whole family, you won’t ever want to leave!

You probably already know about the world famous Disneyland Park here, but Anaheim also boasts many more amusement and theme parks that are sure to keep both parents and children entertained for hours. For sports enthusiasts, the NHL’s Anaheim Ducks and MLB’s Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim play in your backyard. An hour’s drive up I-5 will also give you access to the MLB’s Los Angeles Dodgers, the NBA’s Los Angeles Lakers and Clippers, the NFL’s Los Angeles Rams, the NHL’s Los Angeles Kings, and MLS’ LA Galaxy.
