So during this year’s International Builders’ Show, the NAHB Design Committee conducted a live design competition in conjunction with the American Institute of Building Design (AIBD) and Building Homes for Heroes, an organization committed to supporting military vets who have returned from Iraq and Afghanistan with severe wounds and disabilities, to design him a home.
The rules were: 2,000-2,500 square feet; a study; at least two baths; a garage to accommodate a customized van and ramp; and several other challenges like being low maintenance and energy efficient.
Best in American Living would like to thank all those who serve our country, and those who serve them. Happy Veterans Day!
