The New American Home celebrates its 25th anniversary at the International Builders' Show. Co-sponsored by NCHI and Builder magazine, The New American Home is a 6725-sq ft, plantation-style house located in the Waters Edge subdivision, a gated, 11-lot development in a private golf and country club community in Orlando, FL, U.S.

Among the green features of the home:

  • The front hall cupola acts as a solar chimney, drawing hot air up and out as it rises naturally to the highest point in the home, augmenting the cooling process and decreasing demand on the mechanical cooling systems.
  • A sealed, fully-conditioned attic eliminates the intrusion of moisture-laden air and unwanted rust and mold and tempers the space, which means a cooler attic and better operating efficiencies of air handling equipment and ductwork placed within.
  • Native landscaping, including live oaks, magnolia and dwarf hollies, need less extra water and irrigation and their placement helps shade the home from the hot sun.
