PATH CONCEPT HOME TO ILLUSTRATE WHOLE-HOUSE DESIGN
PATH is pleased to announce its newest effort to help advance innovation in the housing industry. A PATH team is currently developing a "Concept Home" to illustrate the advanced construction principles from PATH’s whole house roadmap. An architectural model of the home will be created this summer and displayed at various venues throughout the year.
The debut of the exhibit is tentatively planned for Washington, DC in June. Through the Concept Home, PATH hopes to inspire builders and manufacturers to improve housing constructability, improve systems integration, and create better, more flexible living environments.
PATH HITS THE PRESSES
Increasingly, housing industry publications are turning to PATH as a resource. In addition to Professional Builder, PATH will be contributing stories on advanced building technologies and practices to Professional Remodeler, Automated Builder and Her Home magazines. Bright Ideas, a newsletter of the Neighborhood Reinvestment Corporation (NRC), also features PATH news, as well as the February/March issue of Southern California Builder.
"GREEN BUILDING GOES MAINSTREAM"- LOOK FOR THE PATH COLUMN IN THE MARCH ISSUE OF PROFESSIONAL BUILDER
Let's face it: green building is not a brand new idea. But several indicators point to 2004 as a vanguard year for the green building movement. For a list of the green building practices and technologies that we expect will make great strides into mainstream home building this year, see the March issue of Professional Builder, available soon at www.housingzone.com.
Also, look for "What You Should Know about Modular Homes," coming up in PB in April.
Each month, the PATH column in Professional Builder highlights advanced homebuilding techniques, showcases construction projects that utilize innovative products and designs, and profiles industry leaders and researchers who are developing and implementing cutting-edge technologies, systems, and industry practices.
"INSULATING BASEMENT WALLS"- LOOK FOR THE PATH COLUMN IN THE MARCH PROFESSIONAL REMODELER
Done right, insulating a basement's perimeter walls is an inexpensive way to domesticate the space, separating the perpetually cool outside walls from the mild interior and creating a much more comfortable living area. This debut PATH column in the March issue of Professional Remodeler examines cost effective insulation techniques. Look for it soon at www.housingzone.com.
Also, look for the April 2004 column, "The Benefits of Materials Exchange," coming to www.housingzone.com.
