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!
