Design

Excellent design – combined with excellent construction – makes a new home stand out, and also stand the test of time. NAHB has a number of resources for home designers, including cutting-edge education sessions at the International Builders' Show, where home builders and their interior designers can also get their plans critiqued in the Design Studio.

Every year, NAHB sponsors the Best in American Living Awards to showcase excellent ideas from single-family and multifamily builders as well as innovative remodeling projects. You’ll see some examples here, many including floorplans of the winning homes.
