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 featured in 2013 New American Home at IBS

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.

The New American Home 2012 features Timberlake Cabinetry

New American Home 2012 Kitchen

The New American Home 2012 kitchen features Timberlake Lausanne Maple Espresso cabinetry.

Timberlake Cabinetry, a leading supplier to the new construction market, brings custom-look style and personalized functionality to The New American Home (TNAH), the annual showcase house of National Association of Home Builders (NAHB). TNAH is presented in conjunction with the International Builders’ Show in Orlando, FL, February 8-11, 2012. The home is open to builders, remodelers, architects and designers as a way to discover new design trends, products and construction technology.

Twelve rooms of the 4,181 square-foot home feature Timberlake Cabinetry. The updated “White Box” architecture, reminiscent of the Sarasota School’s philosophy of the 50s and 60s, relies on contemporary collections from Timberlake to reflect the warm sophistication of the design. The sleek Lausanne slab doors in near-noir Maple Espresso extend a unified furniture-style look through the home, appearing in the kitchen, media room, loft, master bedroom, powder room, office, family room, art gallery and dining room. Phil Kean, whose trio of Phil Kean Designs companies served as the architect, builder and interior design service for TNAH, describes the effect: “This rich, almost black, tone gets pulled into this White Box, and it warms up the whole house. It’s a really good blend.”

In the master and guest baths and the art studio, the clean white of New Haven Maple Linen was chosen to add a counterpoint to darker shades throughout the rest of the home. A classic line and coloring creates a timeless feel that never feels outdated.

Timberlake Cabinetry featured in three Builder Magazine Concept Homes at International Builders’ Show

Builder Concept Home 2012 Boomer Kitchen

The 2012 Builder Concept Home designed for the Baby Boomer generation, features Timberlake Sierra Vista Painted Maple Hazelnut cabinets throughout the kitchen.

Timberlake Cabinetry, a leading supplier to the new construction market, demonstrates the role cabinetry plays in defining the home styles of the three fastest growing generations of homebuyers as part of the Builder magazine Concept Homes in Eagle Creek, a master plan community located in Lake Nona in Southeast Orlando. Built in conjunction with the International Builders’ Show, the three show homes represent the unique lifestyles of Generation X, Generation Y and Baby Boomers. The Concept Homes are open to builders, remodelers, architects and designers February 8-11, 2012, during the International Builders’ Show as a means to showcase important shifts in home design, building products and community development.

“With Timberlake® cabinetry, the designers were able to use stock cabinets to create a custom look that clearly captures – and shapes – the lives of the very different generations who live in them,” said Laura-Jo Boynton, Brand Marketing for Timberlake. Adds Peter Osterman, Vice President of Operations for Centerline Homes, who built the homes, “For most customers, kitchens tend to be the most important room of a house and cabinets are one of the main elements that help set the tone.”

Builder Concept Home 2012 Gen Y Kitchen

Builder Concept Home 2012 Gen X Kitchen

Gen X kitchen: Lausanne Cherry Bordeaux

The Gen Y home features an open floorplan and uses a single Timberlake cabinetry style and color to maximize the space with clean design unity. The sleek look of the Shaker style Sonoma® line is featured in a deep maple espresso in the kitchen and baths. For the tech-savvy Gen Y’ers, the cabinetry is used to create a built-in media center in the office. It also shapes a kitchenette in the guest suite, blending usability and furniture-style looks.

In the Gen X home, functionality is as important as fashion in the busy lives of young families. Two contemporary cabinetry collections, both in warm cherry finishes, set the look in 15 rooms of the show home. The open kitchen features the sleek lines of the Lausanne collection’s slab door. Interior organization features, such as cabinet pull-outs and cutlery drawer dividers, add convenience for on-the-go X’ers. In the guest suite, Lausanne cabinetry creates a built-in wardrobe and chest that provides storage, as well as defining the room’s architecture. The mission-style design of New Haven greets visitors at the home’s handy “drop zone” and beautifully eliminates clutter in the bath.

The Boomer home features a variety of cabinetry style and color combinations, reflecting the eclectic tastes the older group has developed over a lifetime. In the kitchen, the light look of Timberlake’s Sierra Vista® Painted Maple with a Hazelnut glaze creates a sense of openness, while a deeper Cherry Chocolate finish warms the study. The well-appointed guest suite uses Rushmore® cabinetry in Maple Auburn to form a storage unit and desk that maximizes living space. Says builder Osterman, “The built-in cabinets allowed us to fit all of the comforts of a home into 300 square feet.”

“Homebuilders have always chosen Timberlake for the styles and colors that can differentiate their homes,” concludes Timberlake’s Boynton. “Today, they’re also using Timberlake cabinetry in innovative ways, like built-in media centers, drop zones and room dividers, to create a custom-feel extras at every budget level. It’s the difference that can close the deal with discerning homebuyers.”
