Launch Announcement: Professional Builder's Show Village to Display Energy-Efficient Modular Homes at International Builders' Show in Las Vegas

ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, IL--(Marketwired - Dec 17, 2013) - Energy efficiency and indoor/outdoor synergy are the focus of two Show Village homes, the BASF BEYOND.High Performance Net Zero home, and the Ultimate Kitchen to be built at the International Builders' Show/KBIS, February 4-6. SGC Horizon's Professional Builder magazine and dozens of product manufacturers are sponsoring these products-at-work environments on the parking lot outside the Las Vegas Convention Center main entrance.

The large Country House, built by California-based Cutting Edge Building Group, offers a master wing with sitting room and ample closets, a multilevel great room and spacious kitchen. An energy-recovery ventilator system, solar panels and hydroelectric power from an adjacent waterfall combine to make it a net-zero energy home.

The modern Fire Island "upside-down" home, also built by Cutting Edge, features a kitchen, living space and a master suite on the upper level, and three bedrooms and two baths on the lower level. Designed as a "glass house" for maximum water views, the number and size of the windows, using triple-coated low-E glass, reduce thermal heat gain.

The BASF BEYOND.High Performance Net Zero Home is built to achieve at least 50% more enhanced energy performance than in code-built homes.

New at Show Village 2014 is the Ultimate Kitchen, a modern, stand-alone, high-end unit crafted by renowned kitchen designer Wendy Johnson, CMKBD. Sponsored by Food & Wine and SGC Horizon's Professional Remodeler magazines, the kitchen features oversized countertops and sinks, with a 17-foot island as the focal point.
