Remodeler Participation Overview:
The New American Remodel® is financed and renovated by remodelers to showcase the NAHB Leading Suppliers Council members’ products through in-kind donations, discounts and services. The remodelers assume all of the “risk and reward” to participate in the project, and the renovated homes are typically offered for sale to compensate the remodeler for his or her financial commitment. Therefore, the remodeler reserves the reasonable right to challenge a design decision or product selection that materially may hamper the eventual sale of the house. However, the remodeler is encouraged to work as a member of the team to set the project specifications and, of course, meet the project guidelines and schedule.
The remodeler also is responsible for selecting and supervising (at his/her own cost) an independent interior designer (ASID Professional Member) who also is responsible for furnishing the show home prior to the professional photography shoot, through the International Builders' Show (IBS). The remodeler also participates in the selection process for a variety of products to be used in and around the show home. The remodeler and/or his representatives must attend all task force meetings.
Remodeler Selection Criteria:
Any NAHB builder member who is active in the metropolitan area of the host city of the IBS may submit an application to build The New American Remodel®. Once the Task Force determines the new concept for the remodel home (target market, location, approximate square footage and sales price), builder members may submit their applications.
