The Not So Big Showhouse: Energy Efficiency and Design Innovation for the Mainstream Housing Market
- Learn how to rethink the standard floor plan to make it more appropriate for today's more informal lifestyles and needs
- See a demonstration of the application of all the Not So Big design principles in one house to create a more livable and well-tailored environment
- Hear about the energy efficiency and sustainable design features included in the home—specifically designed to make it attainable for the average buyer
- Learn how to develop a better and more sustainable house of the future, that's designed for the long haul, with features such as the ability to age in place, to observe and manage energy consumption, and to light effectively and beautifully with LEDs.
Not So Big: The Doorway to Happy Customers
- Understand the implications of new demands for reduced size and increased energy efficiency on residential design and construction in a post recession economy
- Discuss the relationship between Not So Big design principles and sustainability
- Recognize and help explain the sustainable and energy efficient features homeowners are looking for
- Use the tools provided in books such as Home By Design, and Not So Big Remodeling to help builders, remodelers, architects and designers steer their customers toward more sustainable and "not so big" solutions to their housing needs
Not So Big for the New Economy: Crafting a More Sustainable Future
June 2, 2010
- Attendees will be shown how to recognize the differences between the needs of the residential client of two years ago versus the client of today.
- Attendees will be given a set of easily implementable design and marketing tools to improve their services at the same time they make their designs smaller.
- Attendees will be given some of the key statistics and current data supporting the move to smaller, better-designed, and more energy efficient houses and remodelings, in order to help tailor their services to the current needs of the marketplace.
- Attendees will discover who these "not so big" homeowners and homebuyers are, what they want, and how to appeal to them. They'll learn to better understand their motivations and objectives in designing, purchasing or remodeling a home; and they'll learn what characteristics of place and community this segment of the population would gravitate toward were these kinds of locations more available.
