The show home demonstrates Builders' Best Practices, concepts, materials, designs and construction techniques that can be replicated – in whole or in part – in housing built any place and in any price range.  Incorporating such elements as the ICC 700 National Green Building Standard, energy efficiency, indoor air quality, safety and universal design as well as market value is a principal goal of The New American Home program. It’s mission is to show that housing performance can be incorporated into the most simple or most complex homes, and that it’s equally as important as aesthetics.  Two Trails has also been chosen to be the Sustainability Building Consultants and Verifiers for The NAHB (National Association of Builders) 2020 New American Home and The New American Remodel Home.
