Townhouses Showcase PATH Technologies
More than 20 innovative technologies from the Partnership for Advancing Technology in Housing (PATH) will be on display at twin two-story townhouses in Reed Construction's Show Village at the International Builders’ Show in Orlando on Jan. 13-16.
One of the PATH Tutorial Townhouses is unfinished so that builders can see exposed building products that promote affordability, energy-efficiency, durability and quality; diminish the home’s impact on the environment; and protect it from natural disasters.
Nationwide Homes is the builder of the modular demonstration homes, which were built in about 10 days to a 90% state of completion in an environmentally controlled production facility in Arabi, GA.
Each townhouse is 1,628 square-feet and made up of 12 modular units. The three-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bath homes showcase features that home buyers want most, such as nine-foot, six-inch ceilings; a gourmet kitchen with stainless steel appliances, ceramic tile and solid-surface countertops; an upstairs master bedroom suite; tray ceilings in the dining room; crown molding and upscale trim; interior columns; arched cased openings; and a front porch.
