The Home Innovation Research Labs and the Forest Products Laboratory invite home builders and remodelers to discuss the challenges you're facing today in your pursuit of building better homes and any ideas you have to solve them.
Your input will help inform a Residential Construction Industry Research Agenda dubbed #Home2020 to guide funding to develop the resources, methods and tools needed to produce high-performance residential buildings for today's market.
Make sure your voice is heard in this industry-wide opportunities assessment. Visit home2020.homeinnovation.com today and share the top three challenges you face or ideas that you think could make home building better.
The #Home2020 portal allows visitors to write about all types of residential construction - new and remodeled one- and two-family homes, low-rise multifamily, and mid- and high-rise residential buildings. Topics range from the performance of building materials, to the design and construction process, and to whole-building performance metrics. (The "About" section of the portal provides more detail.)
