The New American Home 2017: Energy Smarts + Resort-Style Living

Originally broadcast February 17, 2017 | 2:00 PM EST On Demand

The New American Home 2017 offers gracious living and entertaining with its stunning pool, multiple kitchens, and separate wing of guest bedrooms. But this 8,245-square-foot, pod-style home delivers more than surface beauty. Its combined green and sustainable building materials, products, energy efficiencies and construction methods have earned it an HERS rating of zero. 

In this one-hour webinar, you’ll learn how the various design and mechanical elements that work in concert will result in energy bills that are estimated to average about $250 annually. Also discussed will be the features that make the home “water-wise” and earned green certifications, including NGBS Emerald, Energy Star, EPA Indoor AirPlus, and Wellness Within the Walls (LEED certification is currently under review).

Speakers:

Phil Kean, Principal, Phil Kean Design Group (PKDG)

Jim Kaiser, Construction Manager, Phil Kean Design Group

Drew Smith, COO, Two Trails Inc.

Future broadcast March 24, 2017 | 2:00 PM EST Register Now

The New American Home’s sumptuous baths, multiple kitchens, exceptional design features, and unique conveniences are major contributors to the home’s resort-style living. Built for lavish entertaining and good times, this stunning 8,245-square-foot pod-style home offers a game room, outdoor kitchen, putting green and spectacular pool.

This one-hour webinar will focus on kitchen and bath features that were designed with fun in mind but also delivered energy efficiencies, including low-flow faucets and toilets, Energy Star appliances, and LED lighting. Plus we’ll look at aging-in-place considerations such as wide doorways and easy shower access that help ensure the resort-style living continues for years to come.
