Innovative IBS show home features energy-efficient Pella® Windows and Doors


PELLA, IA – January 17, 2012 – (RealEstateRama) — Highly energy-efficient Pella Windows and Doors will be featured in a demonstration home at Professional Builders’ 2013 Show Village during the NAHB International Builders’ Show® (IBS) in Las Vegas, Jan. 22-24.

“Pella Designer Series® wood sliding patio doors and our premium vinyl Pella 350 Series windows, all with three panes of glass, will inspire IBS visitors looking for energy-efficient solutions as they view this innovative home designed by Greenfab,” said Chris Dana, trade marketing manager for Pella.

ENERGY STAR®-qualified Pella Designer Series® wood sliding patio doors and Pella 350 Series vinyl casement and double-hung windows will be featured in the 2,300-square-foot Admiral Home — Greenfab’s newest modular home design that incorporates classic Craftsman architecture with highly energy-efficient features that target a LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Platinum certification from the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC).

“The Admiral home takes a classical approach to design and expresses an elegant connection between indoor and outdoor living through a spacious great-room and a signature, two-story vaulted kitchen,” said Johnny Hartsfield, Greenfab founder.

“By incorporating numerous energy-efficient windows and doors, we’ve created a naturally lit, spacious home for growing families or multi-generational families who need space for comfortable living, gathering and entertaining,” Hartsfield said.

The Pella Designer Series wood patio doors and Pella 350 Series vinyl windows in the home feature advanced Low-E insulating triple-pane glass with argon1 for superior energy savings.

Show Village is the show-home exhibit at the annual International Builders’ Show. Each year, three cutting-edge model homes are built in the convention center parking lot at IBS. Once the show is over, the Admiral Home will be relocated to the Alki Beach neighborhood in West Seattle.
