Several Rocky Mountain Plan Company members will be heading to Las Vegas next week to attend the 2014 NAHB International Builders Show! In addition, RMPC founding members Larry Gilland and Bernie Kern will be participating in the BALA Live Design Competition as part of the Collaborative Design Group.

This dynamic competition gives teams the opportunity to design a home concept and floor plan in only nine hours on the IBS exhibit floor, all for a very special cause--to create a home for one of America's wounded veterans returning from war.

For more information, check out the video below of last year's competition.

We'll be posting photos from the Builders Show here on the blog, and if you happen to be in Vegas, please stop by the BALA Competition to say hello!

The Arts & Crafts home is one of comfort and character, with a cozy warmth that will envelop your family for generations. This home style is based on a deep-rooted philosophical movement and a back-to-nature approach to life that originated in the British Isles in the 1850s.
Victorian Architecture

With projecting circular turrets, tiny balconies, wraparound porches, and ornamental facades, Victorian homes often feel like mini castles or Gothic mansions. Victorians are effusive with charm, painted in multiple colors with details and millwork accents to spare. These homes invite you to have tea in bay window nooks or curl up with a book in a brightly painted turret.

A common uniting factor of the New England Colonial home is a prominently featured front door, often accentuated in some way with a decorative crown—or pediment—supported by pilasters. This statement-making front entry may also be projected forward to create an entry porch supported by slender columns. Typically, the entrance is positioned at the center of the home, with a symmetrical facade extending to either side.

Often found along Main Street in many small American towns, Colonial homes evoke a sense of Americana like apple pie and hot dogs on the Fourth of July.
