The home is oriented on to make the most of natural sunlight while minimizing solar heat gain, highlighting spectacular views of the Las Vegas Strip. The home includes many features of energy efficiency and sustainability including a plaster-like material that helps control wall temperature and roof solar panels that supply 83 percent of the homes energy. The home is expected to achieve Emerald status under the National Green Building Standard.

The home was designed as a multi-generational home, including both a guest suite and a casita. The floorplan also includes areas that are both indoor and outdoor living spaces, creating a natural flow. To view a virtual tour of the 2014 New American Home, visit
