Smaller, Sustainable, and Stylish: The New American Home 2022

The New American Home 2022 features a smaller total square footage than previous New American Homes in years past, but still maintains a sense of luxury and innovation with both artful and efficient design features. More impressively, due to permitting and design-related delays that pushed back construction until late May of 2021, the show home was completed in half the time of a typical project. 

The 2022 home has ​​4,646 square feet of living space, multiple flex spaces, indoor-outdoor design, and is expected to achieve net-zero status and Emerald-level National Green Building Standard certification, according to NAHBNow. Those registered to attend the NAHB International Builders’ Show and the Kitchen & Bath Industry Show in February 2022 can catch complimentary buses from the Orange County Convention Center (OCCC) to tour the home during show hours.

Building a show home that will “wow” even the industry’s top builders — and building it in half the time of a typical project — is no small feat. But the build team of The New American Home® 2022 delivered just that: an impressive showcase of the latest techniques and products in residential construction.

“I really couldn’t have asked for anything more, except for maybe the amount of time we had to build the house,” said Steven Earl, president of Envy Homes, who oversaw the 2022 home. Because of a variety of permitting and design-related delays, the project could not get underway until late May of 2021. And like many other builders across the nation, Earl says countless supply-chain delays created a variety of scheduling challenges throughout the entire project.

“We wanted to build a home that is more realistic, as far as size, price and location, which would appeal to an even broader audience,” said Serena Hahn, CEO of Envy Homes. “It’s definitely not your typical show home, but we know there’s incredible demand right now in this segment of the market, so there’s a lot of excitement to see what can be done within a property like this.”
