Martha Stewart GreenHouse to Be Unveiled at IBS

January 06, 2011

Builder magazine will unveil the KB Home GreenHouse, an idea home created with Martha Stewart, at the International Builders’ Show, January 12-15, 2011 in Orlando, FL.

In addition to the home design being influenced by Martha Stewart, the KB Home GreenHouse is slated to be the first net-zero energy, single-family home in the Builder magazine Concept Home series. The residence will not only save energy and water through the use of solar and thermal systems and meet EPA's WaterSense for new homes specifications, but will also demonstrate how to save money for years to come by reducing energy bills.

“Teaming up with KB Home, one of country’s premier homebuilders, and incorporating Martha’s incomparable style and eye for functionality has been a fantastic experience,” said Boyce Thompson, editorial director for Builder magazine. “We’re always looking for new ways to showcase the latest and greatest in building technology and KB Home’s efficient designs and industry leadership in the field of green building have allowed us to do exactly that.”

Offering numerous environmentally friendly touches, the home’s kitchen will include Blanco’s Solon compost system. Created from recycled stainless steel, the system organically collects waste below the counter, offering a neat and attractive compost collecting option. The GreenHouse will open for tours on January 12, 2011. In addition to live on-site tours, an online virtual tour will be available for those unable to make the show. Click here for details.
