How to Build a House in Vegas in 7 Dayskbis/ibs 2014
A look inside the amazing modular homes built in the parking lot outside the Las Vegas Convention Center.
Could there be a more effective way to market at the International Builders Show (IBS) than to actually build a home on site? Probably not, which is why the trade journal Professional Builder has organized just such a project for the last 17 years running. This year, the journal's "Show Village" featured not one but four homes, all assembled in a period of just seven days.
Each of the modular homes showcases a different style, from the one story Net-Zero and Ultimate Kitchen homes to the two-story, beach-bound Fire Island Home. But not all of this year's homes were created equal.
The Country House
- 4 trucks to deliver the house
- 14 separate segments of the pre-constructed house
- 10 construction workers to put it together
- 1 crane
- 7 days
The home was designed by Portland, Oregon-based Dezine Works. Owner and architect Ross Farland estimated that the house, as equipped, would run about $1.5 million. Of course, that excludes the cost of the necessary land.
