Home Show on National Mall in Washington, D.C. Sept. 12-14
The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development will host the 2nd Annual Innovative Housing Showcase on Sept. 12-14 on the National Mall in Washington, D.C.
HUD Secretary Ben Carson announced the dates for the 2020 public event during the International Builder’s Show in Las Vegas.
The Innovative Housing Showcase is a large, public display of innovative designs, structures, and advances in housing, particularly toward energy-efficiency, durability, and affordability.
Manufactured Housing at the Innovative Housing Showcase
Last year, the Manufactured Housing Institute and Skyline Champion Corporation, UMH Properties, and Cavco Industries teamed to set up a trio of manufactured homes on the National Mall.
“An average of 1,000 people per day toured the homes over the five-day period, including administration officials, members of Congress, and the general public,” MHI noted in a statement following Carson’s announcement. “With these homes on display, policymakers and the public saw with their own eyes that today’s modern manufactured homes are indistinguishable from site-built homes and about half the cost per square foot.”
In 2020, innovative builders again will host law and policymakers through the week, including manufactured housing professionals who invest in and plan out affordable, safe, and healthy places to live.
