Filed in Design, IBS by on January 20, 2015 0 Comments

Here in Las Vegas, the official show home of the International Builders’ Show (IBS) is open for tours through Jan. 22.

Now in its 32nd year, The New American Home® (TNAH) is constructed annually in conjunction with IBS. For 2015, the home will demonstrate how the most cutting-edge building technology, products and materials can be integrated into a production home community.

Co-produced with Hanley Wood’s BUILDER Magazine, THAH 2015 has a production floor plan that feels like a unique, custom-built home. The four-bedroom, 5,891-square-foot desert contemporary home, built and designed by Las Vegas builder Blue Heron, presents a collection of takeaway ideas for every price point that can be rolled into mass production quickly and efficiently.

“Tyler Jones and the team at Blue Heron have done a great job creating a home that offers something for everybody – builders and remodelers, architects and designers, product manufacturers and consumers,” said Tucker Bernard, director of NAHB’s Leading Suppliers Council. “Housing industry professionals who tour this home are going to leave Las Vegas with a lot of great ideas that they can start using immediately.”

TNAH 2015 exceeds Emerald status, the highest level of certification from the ICC 700 National Green Building Standard. Features include photovoltaic panels, open spray-foam insulation, a weather-sensitive irrigation system that automatically adjusts usage relative to the immediate climate, high-efficiency water heaters, hydronic air handlers, intelligent fireplaces, balanced daylighting and low-maintenance building materials.

Show attendees can get free tickets at The New American Home Booth in the central concourse of the Las Vegas Convention Center from 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. each tour day on a first-come, first-served basis

Shuttle bus service to TNAH 2015 will be available from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. through Thursday, Jan. 22 from the curb in front of Exhibit Hall C2. Complimentary shuttle bus tickets will be distributed at The New American Home booth in the central concourse of the convention center from 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. each tour day on a first-come, first-served basis.
