Show Village Cottage Showcases Innovations in Compact FootprintJanuary 28th, 2023
Pro Builder’s Show Village returns to the International Builders’ Show this year, featuring five homes demonstrating the latest innovations in design and technology. Several Westlake Royal Building Products are featured on the Impresa Home, a compact, adaptable cottage designed as a lakeside retreat.
The 1,066-square-foot, two-bed/two-bath Impresa Home is designed to live large, with an open floor plan emphasized by dramatic vaulted ceilings, a spiral staircase to a loft flex space, and covered front and rear porches that extend the footprint and provide added relaxation and entertaining space. It’s designed as an ideal option for a first-time home buyer or a vacation/second home.
The house was manufactured off site by Impresa Building Systems in a factory/assembly line setting that decreases variability and increases speed and efficiency.
Impresa includes a tankless water heater, foam insulation, and wood flooring, along with several innovative products are several from Westlake Royal Building Products:
• Celect® Cellular Composite Siding and Trim:
The Celect premium siding featured on Impresa is made from recyclable, state-of-the-art cellular material that faithfully reproduces the texture, look, and solid heft of real wood, but is unaffected by mold, mildew, weather, and time. Celect insulates 70% better than wood, stands up to impact even under the harshest weather conditions, features a fade-resistant Kynar Aquatec® coating that withstands all weather conditions and climates, and is backed by a 25-year color protection warranty.
• Eldorado Stone®:
Eldorado Stone’s RoughCut mimics limestone with embedded, fossilized artifacts and a roughly cleaved, pronounced face. Shaped for bold, traditional statements with clean contemporary lines, the color Loire Valley resents a sophisticated gradient of ivories and muted creams with touches of sand and rust.
• Kindred™ Outdoors + Surrounds
The Angelo Mantel Shelf from Kindred Outdoors + Surrounds boasts elegant, sweeping curves. The mantels are available in four colors representing natural limestone and in a smooth or textured surface.
• Unified Steel™ Stone Coated Metal Roofing:
The Unified Steel stone-coated steel roofing offers Class 4 hail impact resistance and a hurricane wind-performance rating. It comes in five distinct profiles and is 100% recyclable.
