The New American Home (TNAH) 2012 is now being erected in Florida to be ready in time for the International Builders’ Show, to be held Feb, 8-11, 2012. TNAH, now in its 29th year, is used to showcase the latest building products and construction technologies. Green building products are used in the home’s design with the intention of achieving "Emerald" status under the green building certification program administered by the National Association of Home Builders Research Center and based on principles set forth in the ICC 700-2008 National Green Building Standard. "Emerald" is the top tier of the four levels a home can earn.



Appliances in the home come from several companies, including:

• Whirlpool Corp. will provide Jenn-Air kitchen appliances, including a wine cabinet as well as Maytag front load laundry appliances.
• Broan – NuTone, LLC, supplying whole house ventilation, kitchen range hoods in the carriage house suite and outdoor kitchen, a central vacuum system, and an iron board station.
• CMHC International will provide a Napoleon – Bellagio Patio Heater.
• Eaton Corporation / Cutler Hammer will provide wiring and electrical components as well as an energy management system, and vehicle charging station.
• The Hearth Patio & Barbeque Association will supply R H Peterson Company fireplaces and Town and Country fireplaces.
• InSinkErator will provide garbage disposals, hot water dispensers, and a water chiller.
• Lennox Industries will provide HVAC equipment, including solar panels.
• Rinnai will supply tankless hot water systems.
• Schneider Electric will provide photovoltaic inverters.

TNAH 2012 is designed to qualify for a number of certifications:

• National Green Building Standard "Emerald Status"
• U.S. DOE Energy Star
• FGBC (Florida Green Building Coalition) Platinum certification
• Florida Yards and Neighborhoods designation
• Florida Water Star designation Progress
• Energy Home Advantage Program
• U.S. DOE Builders Challenge
• USGBC (U.S. Green Building Council)

TNAH 2012 is designed to be a re-interpretation of the Classic White Box of the 1960s and ’70s, popularized by architects like Le Corbusier and Richard Meier. Phil Kean of Winter Park, FL, is architect and builder of the 2012 home, and designed it to focus on functional and transitional spaces and attention to detail rather than square footage. The home will take advantage of the Florida climate. Walls of movable glass panels and motorized screens allow for flow from indoor to outdoor spaces.
