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.”
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.
