The 2002 edition of The New American Home opens next month at the International Builders' Show in Atlanta. This year's plantation-style, move-up home was built by Atlanta's John Wieland Homes and Neighborhoods and showcases the latest in new-home products and appliances by members of the NAHB's National Council of the Housing Industry. Tours of the home are free for registered IBS attendees, and shuttles will depart daily from the World Congress Center.
