The New American Home® 2024 (TNAH) is the Official Show Home of the NAHB International Builders’ Show® (IBS). TNAH 2024 is taking shape in the foothills of the Ascaya subdivision of Henderson, NV. Designed by the award-winning and experienced design-build firm Sun West Custom Homes, this one-story home boasts 7,722 square feet of living space for the perfect combination of effortless luxury and natural beauty.
Many innovative products went into completing the first phase of building the home.
The Vision for TNAH 2024
The vision was to create a beautiful home that’s in harmony with the mountainside. They wanted a unique design that captures the stunning 280-degree view and make every room appropriately sized for a large one-story footprint.
“One of the really cool things that I created in The New American Home 2024 is a cool angular monolith. It’s like a single piece that’s got a cool angle to it. The idea was to set yourself up, so you’ll feel this angle feeling throughout the whole house. It’s a continuity kind of thing where everywhere in the house you see this similar angle happening,” shares Dan Coletti, Owner of Sun West Custom Homes. “I think it’s really fun, kind of playful, it’s a little unique, so I think everyone’s gonna really enjoy seeing it.”
The New American Home is a symbol of energy efficiency. It is designed to exceed requirements for certification to the Emerald level of the National Green Building Standard™ and is targeting the EPA ENERGY STAR® certification, DOE’s Zero Energy Ready Home certification and net-zero status.
See What’s Already Happening
Can you believe we already applied the TPO roof membrane in March? Sun West Custom Homes got off to a great start building this innovative masterpiece while enhancing energy efficiency.
The TamlynWrap was installed. This wrap combines a high-performance WRB with a unique drainage pattern to help remove 100x more water from a well-constructed wall than standard wraps.
TNAH team installed Western Window Systems into the Official Show Home of IBS 2024. By integrating recycled aluminum on these glass windows, this high-performance product requires less energy to produce and meets Energy Star qualification standards.
The insulated flex duct installed in the home saves the builder money and has an insulation factor between R-4.2 & R.8.0. This helps the home become one of the most energy-efficient Builders’ Show homes on record!
The spray foam from Holcim that was applied above the ceiling of TNAH 2024 helps to create an airtight seal that’s 24x less permeable to air infiltration. It’s just one of the energy–efficient products in this show home!
Sun West Custom Homes created these roof penetrations to prepare for the incredible skylights from VELUX North America. This product will allow natural sunlight to enter the home and can make a major impact on energy savings.
