For those who were unable to experience the latest edition of The New American Home during the International Builders’ Show® 2023 — and for all of those who want another look — you’re in luck. The builder, Michael Gardner, will lead an in-depth tour of the 2023 show home during a free, live webinar Feb. 23.
Gardner, an award-winning architect and builder, and principal of Luxus Design Build, will guide webinar attendees through the expansive, 7,575-square-foot home and highlight several of its key features. Gardner will also explain some of the challenges he and his team encountered during construction and the solutions they developed to keep the project on track.
“Our biggest challenge was figuring out how and when to schedule our labor [because] no one would commit to a specific date until the product was on site,” said Gardner, who faced continual supply delays throughout most of the project. “We were constantly having to adjust our schedule, and I know most other builders across the country are dealing with very similar issues.”
However, the final product was successfully delivered in time to make its official debut at IBS, receiving rave reviews from industry leaders and major media outlets. Gardner was especially proud of the home’s balance between livability and high performance.
“This home showcases a wide variety of some of the most advanced products and innovative design concepts, but in a very understated, clean, refined manner,” he said. “It’s a great balance of form, function, usability and design.”
Moderated by Layne Deakins, associate editor of Pro Builder, the webinar will focus primarily on:
- how the home incorporates the latest design trends and ideas;
- which design-build strategies were most effective; and
- why interior design is so critical.
Viewers will also have the opportunity to submit questions for Gardner to address during a Q&A session.
The live webinar will begin at 2:30 p.m. ET on Feb. 23. Register here.
