WASHINGTON, DC — Home Open for Tours at International Builders’ Show 2015 — Now in its 32nd year, The New American Home (TNAH) is constructed annually in conjunction with NAHB’s International Builders’ Show. 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, The New American Home 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 production builders for every price point. TNAH 2015 looks like a custom home but 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 is designed and built to exceed Emerald status, the highest level of certification from the National Green Building Standard. The home’s green building 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. Other anticipated certifications for TNAH include HERS -10, US DOE Energy Star Certified, US DOE Challenge Home, US EPA Indoor airPLUS, US DOE Build America Program, Southern Nevada Green Building Partnership, and the Water Smart Home Program. TNAH 2015 is designed for a casual and modern lifestyle and includes a large, open kitchen that flows into the dining area, multiple seating and entertainment spaces, and a rooftop deck. Situated to capture views of the Las Vegas Strip and nearby mountains, the home features high ceilings and massive sliding pocket doors that open to outdoor courtyards, decks and balconies for indoor-outdoor living. The second floor includes a private casita, which can be used for a nanny, visiting guests or as an in-law suite for aging relatives.  – See more at:–Open-for-Tours–288416611.html#sthash.6JqmvfJH.dpuf
