HDA's Home Plan Magazine, DesignAmerica™, Goes Green for First Issue of 2010

ST. LOUIS, MO--(Marketwire - September 2, 2009) - Leading home plan company HDA, Inc. will publish another issue of its magazine DesignAmerica™ focusing on green building and energy efficient home plans. DesignAmerica™, which has been published for over six years, has proven to be a mainstay for those looking to see the latest best-selling home plans and the hottest trends in the housing market today. Now, HDA has directed the focus of its latest issue and is providing consumers with even more terrific home plans that include energy efficient building techniques and are designed to be "green."

DesignAmerica™, which has been published both as a quarterly and bi-annual publication throughout the last six years, is distributed nationwide to Lowe's stores. The upcoming issue, on sale January 5th, 2010, addresses the increasing popularity in greener homes. Filled with nearly 200 designs that are specifically created for more energy efficient living, this magazine includes a variety of building options that focus on better efficiency and recycled products.

"DesignAmerica™ has really come a long way from its premier issue. Not only have we added higher quality photography, the content of the articles is better integrated with the overall theme of each issue. And, we began printing the magazine on better quality glossier paper that enhances the stunning photography featured. All of these factors have created a winning combination that is both inviting and upscale," says Kim King, HDA's Publications Manager.

All the home designs featured in DesignAmerica are available for purchase from HDA by calling the toll-free customer service line at 1-800-373-2646 or visiting HDA's web site offers a staggering collection of more than 17,000 house designs ranging from ranch style house plans to luxury house plans and everything in-between. And, because some designs may be close but not perfect, HDA provides a simple modification service to customize any plan purchased from its web site, plan books or magazines.

HDA also offers many other publications including Over 425 Small Home Plans, Home Plans for a Smaller Lot and Luxury Home Plans, all of which can be purchased at Lowe's stores across the United States.
