Timberlake Cabinetry design and service spotlighted in 2014 New American Home at IBS

The New American Home 2014 Kitchen

The New American Home 2014 kitchen features Timberlake Lausanne Maple Espresso and New Haven Painted Cream.

Timberlake Cabinetry, a leading supplier to the new construction market, is the featured cabinetry provider for The New American Home (TNAH) 2014, a multigenerational show home presented in conjunction with the International Builders’ Show in Las Vegas, NV, February 4-6, 2014. This is Timberlake’s seventh year in a row with the annual showcase house produced and presented by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) Leading Suppliers Council and Builder magazine.

Timberlake® cabinetry is incorporated throughout the 6,700-square-foot desert contemporary home built by Element Building Company. Fourteen rooms feature four Timberlake collections in various styles and finishes to accent the individual room concepts.

Josh Anderson, owner and president of Element Building Company, commented, “The collaboration was great. Especially with some of the newer features, there are definitely areas where Timberlake is bringing to market some custom features for a production or semi-custom builder. Everyone is blown away by the kitchen island, the seamless integration of appliances, and a lot of the organization features that have been added.”

Among the noteworthy features is a kitchen island that includes 13 spacious drawer bases to add needed storage in the minimalist contemporary kitchen and decorative cabinet doors that camouflage the refrigerator and freezer. In each of eight baths, cabinetry helps define different interpretations of style, with elements from floating shelves to furniture-style vanities. In the laundry room and carriage suite kitchen, the cabinetry enables big functionality in small spaces.

“Our goal is to show how Timberlake can provide the custom looks and functional features you expect in the highest level show home, designed and built with our standard cabinetry,” said Perry Campbell, Timberlake Senior Vice President and General Manager. “These are ideas homebuilders can offer affordably in homes at a variety of price ranges.”

Reviewing Plans

Ron Jolly and Tracey Burrell-Combs review plans during the cabinetry installation at The 2014 New American Home.

The New American Home is always an ambitious undertaking, bringing together an innovative vision on a compressed timeline. It requires a sharp focus on planning, thinking ahead to prevent problems, troubleshooting and going the extra mile. This year’s edition was plagued by inclement weather, putting even more pressure on the build.

“We had five days on the schedule to complete the cabinet installation. Timberlake did it in three,” noted Element’s Anderson. “Everything they committed to, they did – and when you’re trying to coordinate with different trades, that’s crucial.” He added, “We had very, very few callback items, and they were mostly trade damage; issues outside Timberlake’s control. They did a phenomenal job.”

“We have a proven, consistent process that keeps everything on track and on time,” says Ron Jolly, Lead Field Supervisor for the project. “We think like builders, and that means looking for ways to contribute to their success. The compressed build schedule is always a challenge, so our focus is on planning ahead to prevent problems, save time and, of course, add value for the builder.”

Tours of The New American Home are complimentary for registered attendees at the International Builders’ Show and include transportation to and from the house. Tickets are required and may be obtained at the show. Timberlake’s Portfolio magazine, a 26-page lookbook filled with photos and details on the home, is also available during the show and online afterwards at Timberlake’s website, https://timberlake.com.

Timberlake Cabinetry unveils new Portfolio magazine with enhanced designer focus

Portfolio Magazine Volume 14, Issue 1 CoverTimberlake Cabinetry, a leading supplier to the new construction market, is unveiling a new design-centered approach to its signature publication, Portfolio magazine, at the International Builders’ Show.

The first of the refocused issues features The New American Home as it has in the past. However, the new concept centers on specific tips, trends and details of the cabinetry within the showcase home, allowing homebuilders and designers to incorporate fresh thinking into their own projects. It will become a guidebook for creating custom looks with standard Timberlake® cabinetry.

Some of the many insights include:

  • Creating a furniture-style kitchen island with recessed toe-kicks
  • Ways to increase storage in minimalist contemporary kitchens and smaller spaces
  • Designing built-in media cabinets and office credenzas with standard cabinetry
  • Crafting furniture-style bath vanities with floating cabinetry and hardware feet
  • Building floating open shelving with tall end panels
  • Affordable, easy-to-install convenience features

“In today’s market, successful builders are looking for upgraded styling at affordable prices to win consumer preference,” says Perry Campbell, Timberlake Senior Vice President and General Manager. “Now more than ever, Timberlake’s Portfolio magazine is a go-to resource for how to accomplish those differentiating features on any budget.”

The new Portfolio magazine will be released at The New American Home 2014. Timberlake is the featured cabinetry provider for the annual showcase house of the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), presented in conjunction with the International Builders’ Show in Las Vegas, NV, February 4-6, 2014. Following the show, the magazine will be available at Timberlake’s website, https://timberlake.com.

Guests dined on hors d’oeuvres by At Your Service Catering, danced to the sounds of acclaimed singer Dian Diaz, participated in video interviews about the night and the home, which will be posted soon so check back, and had an opportunity to walk room-to-room to truly experience all that the New American Home 2013 has to offer.

Completed in just 9 months (!) the 6,721-square-foot home features, sixteen rooms of Timberlake Cabinetry, a touchpad system for total control of the home, a rejuvenation room, an indoor-outdoor master bedroom, a koi pond, water features that run throughout the home, a sky deck with views of the Las Vegas Strip, and the home has attained National Green Building Standard “Emerald” Level.

New American Home 2013 Great Room

The New American Home 2013 great room features Timberlake Lausanne Cherry Java and Spice cabinetry.

Timberlake Cabinetry, a leading supplier to the new construction market, is the featured cabinetry provider for The New American Home (TNAH), the annual showcase house of the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) presented in conjunction with the International Builders’ Show in Las Vegas, NV, January 22-24, 2013. TNAH is considered the premier venue for new design trends, products and technology for builders, remodelers, architects and designers.

Timberlake® cabinetry is incorporated throughout the 6,721-square-foot desert contemporary home designed and built by Blue Heron. Fifteen rooms feature the classic, clean lines of the Timberlake Lausanne® slab door in deep Cherry Spice, Java, and Maple Espresso and each is used in innovative ways. Several rooms also include cabinetry with the recently launched CushionClose® Hinge Option, resulting in a soft, gentle closure every time.

The great room and kitchen are unified into a single living space by a striking 47.5’ run of Cherry Java and Cherry Spice cabinetry, which also shapes the fireplace surround and media center while providing ample storage. In the kitchen, aluminum-and-glass doors are a gleaming example of the current two-tone design trend.

The home also reinvents the wine room with multi-dimensional cabinetry used as a focal point. In the library, Timberlake wall cabinetry becomes floor-to-ceiling horizontal shelving. Floating base cabinetry creates a light, sophisticated appeal in all of the home’s baths.

Timberlake and Blue Heron designers collaborated on every step of the process. “It’s almost product development,” says Blue Heron architect Michael Gardner of the partnership. “We took the traditional kit of parts and used them in innovative and unique ways to showcase the possibilities.”

Timberlake will be hosting a customer/media event and guided tour celebrating the completion of the home on January 22, 2013. Customers and members of the media will have the chance to tour the home and meet with Timberlake executives and staff.

Sponsored by the Leading Suppliers Council of the NAHB and Builder Magazine, this marks the 30th year The New American Home has been featured alongside the International Builders’ Show.

Timberlake Brings The New American Home to Life

New American Home Party Goers

Guests enjoy themselves at the Timberlake Cabinetry party at the 2012 New American Home in Winter Park, Florida during the International Builders’ Show on Wednesday, February 8th, 2012.

Once a year, 50,000 members of the builder community come together at the International Builders’ Show (IBS) to see the newest homebuilding trends. This year, in Orlando, we were once again showcased in The New American Home, a house built from the ground up just for the show attendees.

So much more than a booth filled with samples, the show home lets visitors experience our cabinetry in a spectacular custom-built home that demonstrates innovative ways to design, personalize and add value in any home on any budget.

A few highlights from this year’s home included:

  • An art gallery with $1.2 million in artwork
  • A beautiful outdoor space of decks and a pool
  • A 30-foot paneled wall created entirely of cabinet doors
  • Twelve rooms of Timberlake cabinetry

It’s always best to experience the home in person, but for those who can’t, we’ve got more on the home, including a photo gallery, on our 2012 New American Home project page.

Best Mix of Work-Play at IBS

Considered one of the hottest tickets at the Builders’ Show, our invite-only VIP party at The New American Home is a chance for top builders, designers, architects and industry executives to experience the show home as it was intended—all lit up and set to entertain.

Under starry skies in nearby Winter Park, some 150+ guests made their way room to room while cool jazz, cocktails and hors d’oeuvres set a mood that kept people engaged.

How engaged? When a caterer’s truck experienced a small fire, the majority of guests simply moved the party to the front lawn and eagerly returned when all was clear.

Party Photos

There were candid party photos

And photo booth photos

And *cough* fire (!) photos *cough* …

Video Interviews

We also did video interviews with guests at the party, so check back occasionally so you don’t miss them!

It’s Never Over

The Builders’ Show may be over, but we keep The New American Home open for all-comers, all year long — with Portfolio Magazine. A week-long photo shoot and interviews with a dozen project decision makers is transformed into 44 printed pages of photos and stories that continue to inform and inspire the trade and homebuyers.

From profiles of the design and build teams to features on the home and cabinetry features, it’s a publication that will be read and re-read. Make a virtual visit yourself or request a printed version from your sales rep!
