In the wake of natural disasters like hurricanes and wildfires, this home's products and building techniques provide new levels of protection from the elements. For example impact-resistant windows and doors provide an esthetically pleasing way to protect a home against windborne debris - eliminating the need for storm panels or expensive roll-down shutter systems.
Furthermore this home was built in compliance with the Institute for Business & Home Safety’s (IBHS) Fortified...for safer living® program, a national program that provides guidance for increasing a new home’s resistance to all types of natural disasters.
Other highlights were fingerprint resistant stainless steel cabinets, as well as a home automation system for audio-video, thermostat, security and lighting control, all from a touch of a button anywhere in the home.
