e2 Homes - 2021 New American Home Remodel Profile
Updated: Apr 27, 2022
For those that are not familiar with The New American Remodeled Home showcased during the annual National Home Builders Convention, they select a builder located near their convention location to remodel a home for the show. This home is not your normal remodel project, they will use products that identify the top features and design trends of 2021, especially in the wake of a pandemic. The builder selected for 2021 is e2 Homes, located in Orlando.
The New American Remodel 2021, as well as its counterpart, The New American Home 2021, will be officially unveiled during IBSx Feb. 9-12, 2021. Show attendees will have exclusive access to virtual video presentations, in addition to immersive 3D virtual tours, as shown below. Normally held in rotation every two years between Orlando, Florida and Las Vegas, Nevada, this year it will be held virtually.

As the pandemic has caused many of us to refocus on their homes, our outdoor areas have become more important than ever. As highlighted in this article posted by NAHB, it focuses on the outdoor aspect as one of the featured areas of this home, not just outside, but the view from within the home with the expansive windows from all levels of the home. This can be seen on the virtual tour above.
"While the interior of the home optimizes its new, open floor plan, the exterior is equally geared toward maximizing living space. The backyard was completely revamped to feature a redesigned pool with a hot tub, splash pad and shallow beach area for kids. There is also green space in which to play and entertain, as well as a separate cabana that is fully equipped to serve as office space and guest accommodations."
