About Show Village

Since Professional Builder debuted its Show Village show-home exhibit some 14 years ago, the magazine has built more than 40 homes for display at the International Builders’ Show. Show Village was created as a way to show off the latest trends in residential design and construction, as well as demonstrate building products in a real-life, installed environment. Over the years, Professional Builder has partnered with more than a dozen home builders and hundreds of product manufacturers to put on the Show Village exhibit at IBS. 

This year, we are teaming with three modular builders — Seattle-based Greenfab; Spanish Fork, Utah-based Irontown Homes; and Addison, Texas-based Palm Harbor Homes — and 32 product manufacturers to build three distinct homes in the main parking lot at the Las Vegas Convention Center, just outside the main entrance and steps from the show floor. With a dual theme of “design innovation and attainable sustainability,” the Show Village homes push the envelope when it comes to both modular housing design and ultra-green construction. All three homes are designed to achieve a certified green rating — the Admiral and the Aurora models are targeting LEED Platinum, while the BASF home offers net-zero-energy performance.
