KieranTimberlake has teamed up with LivingHomes, Profile Structures, and Color Design Art to create a modular show home for Builder magazine. The home will be on display at the 2009 International Builders' Show in Las Vegas, January 20-23. You can take a virtual tour of the project on the Builder website.
Boyce Thompson, Builder magazine's editorial director, writes:
Next week, four semi-trailers will leave a factory in Southern California carrying the modules and panels that make up our show home for this year's International Builders' Show in Las Vegas. The convoy will idle across the street in a parking lot, waiting for the convention floor to open for exhibitors. Then, when the doors roll up at 12:01 a.m. on the morning of the 14th, crews will race the components to the floor and begin a mad, five-day race to ready the home for visitors.
If you are going to the IBS this year, check out the Builder LivingHome. We've been working for more than a year on this super-sustainable ‘mod' home. The experience of navigating the nascent modular industry to line up a builder, an architect, a factory, and suppliers is an interesting story in itself. But it is sure to be eclipsed by the home itself, which speaks volumes about the trends that are likely to preoccupy builders for the next several decades.
