The design side - Kicking it up a notch

Come January 2013, we’re taking HousingZone’s already stellar coverage of residential design to a new level. Look for weekly blog posts from yours truly … a new monthly e-newsletter, “Design Innovation” … contributed articles from the best in the business … and much more.

“Design Innovation” will be a monthly compendium of design-related news, project profiles, floor-plan reviews and first-person reports from the show floor and the field. Whether it’s the highlights of a new consumer survey, the skinny on cutting-edge building products, or sound bites from a housing-industry pro, we’ll compile and deliver information that will help keep you on top of your design game.

And we’ll link to relevant feature stories in Professional Builder, Professional Remodeler and Custom Builder so you won’t miss a thing. Stay tuned …
