The New American Home 2022 built in Laureate Park in Lake Nona, Orlando, Fla., is both beautiful and practical, with a design that responds to post-pandemic consumer demands and aims to reach a broad audience.

Built by Orlando builder Envy Homes, the two-level, three-bedroom home eschews the opulence of its recent brethren with a more modest, if certainly well-appointed, model for the industry. Scroll down to see the building products and materials that went into creating this year's New American Home.

The company’s space-saving LG WashTower puts washer and dryer controls at just the right height, and the Studio Styler steamer reduces odors and refreshes a variety of fabrics. Platinum partner
