Join key members of The New American Home 2022 project team for a webinar exploring the design features of this 4,674-square-foot coastal-style Florida home in the Orlando-area master plan of Lake Nona.
This year's New American Home—the 38th annual idea home built in the host city of the International Builders’ Show—is a two-level, three-bedroom home that offers a more modest model for the industry, without sacrificing style or livability, delivering well-appointed spaces that meet the needs of today’s homeowner. To reach a broad audience, “we emphasized the flexibility of the spaces, since we know everyone lives differently,” says Serena Hahn, CEO of Envy Homes, the home's builder.
