Champion Homes returned to Las Vegas in 2023 to show a sample of its Genesis Homes collection, setting up a 1,873-square-foot factory-built home, and an accessory dwelling unit, in the outdoor village at the International Builder’s Show.
Organizers for IBS estimated an audience of more than 45,000 attendees had the opportunity to walk through the new homes, with about 200,000 people attending the collection of residential kitchen, bath, and hardware help during the week.
The show was hosted by the National Association of Home Builders, and took place Jan. 31 — Feb. 2, at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
The Champion Homes team is earning new customers by directly addressing the market need for affordable, timely, and sustainably built homes.
“We are receiving a tremendous response from our builder developer customers. Our Genesis Homes lineup provides a turnkey solution at a price point, and timeline for today’s market,” said Mark Yost, president and CEO of Skyline Champion Corporation. “Our expansion in the builder/developer market reflects our commitment to make homeownership more attainable, and we are excited to be collaborating with partners who share our vision to welcome even more customers into their new home.”
Features of the New Genesis Homes
Genesis Homes and ADUs feature contemporary exteriors and interiors, and thoughtful floor plans and designs.
The Genesis single-family home has three bedrooms and two bathrooms. The interior layout is spacious, providing open entertaining areas and ample privacy and quiet space. The home has a welcoming curb appeal, including covered porches for outdoor living.
The Genesis Homes ADU has two bedrooms and one bathroom in 788 square feet. Accessory dwelling units are a fast-growing affordable solution for homeowners looking to add additional space on their property. Whether as a guest house, workspace, casita, or rental, Genesis ADUs have a range of floor plans to create just the right stand-alone flex space to complement a single-family home.

More from the 2023 International Builder’s Show
There was plenty to see in Las Vegas at IBS ’23. Four representatives from MHInsider made the event to find interesting industry news, to talk with customers, and to see how other organizations in residential housing are representing themselves. Along the way we gathered some information and took photos to share in a quick roundup.
Impresa Impressive in the Village
Modular builder Impresa, along with several partners, showed a new floorplan —The Carolina Cottage — in the outdoor village. The 1,409-square-foot home garnered plenty of attention, particularly for its high, wood-paneled ceiling. The home has two bedrooms, 1 1/2 baths, a 415-square-foot loft, and two covered porches. It came in on four trucks, each one carrying a module. The home was designed by architect Bill Gilbert and it was constructed in a factory in Greenwood, N.C. Impresa also brought along its new magazine, Offsite Builder, which details the efficiency, durability, and affordability of factory-built housing.
Not All Homes Were in the Village
Leon Integra, a Turkish logistics and distribution company with offices in Massachusetts, exhibited a tiny home at the show as a means of showing off the porcelain, rainscreen and siding, engineered wood, kitchen and bath offerings, and aluminum window and door solutions. The silo-shaped home captured the attention of passers-by throughout the show and spurred a lot of conversation about the use of space, efficiency in homebuilding, and environmental stewardship.
Beko Wins Big Prize at Kitchen and Bath Show
A primary component for the builder’s show in Vegas is the KBIS offering of the latest in kitchen and bath trends. MHInsider went on a media tour to get a sneak peek, with many of the offerings in the segment having a meaningful market in the manufactured housing industry. Beko, which is among the largest residential appliance designers and manufacturers in the world, continues to make gains in the U.S. market and this year was awarded the 2023 “Biggest Bite” among the Design Bites award winners.
This award recognizes the brand that offered the best combination of innovative products and presentation of product capabilities and benefits at the KBIS NEXT Stage. The “Brand with the Biggest Bite” was selected by a Shark Tank-like panel of judges that included Leigh Harrington, part of the USA TODAY Network, Sarah Robertson, of Studio Dearborn, and Breegan Jane, a TV host, interior designer, entrepreneur and philanthropist.
LG’s Signature Kitchen Suite provides at-home chefs the tools to prepare food in the best possible ways by bringing professional-grade equipment to the home kitchens. The company pioneered sous vide technology in the residential kitchens, as the first and only to integrate sous vide capabilities right on the cooking surface, alongside gas burners and induction for the perfect finish. At KBIS 2023, the company unveiled an expanded portfolio of luxury appliance innovations that drive performance, design, and precision including a 48-inch French-door refrigerator, 36-inch gas cooktop and PowerSteam dishwasher.
Live demonstrations and tastings will be led by Executive Chef Nick Ritchie based at Signature Kitchen Suite’s Experience and Design Center in culinary-centric Napa Valley, Calif. Attendees learned how to achieve gourmet cooking results using exclusive products including the versatile 48-inch Dual Fuel Pro Range, the first and only pro range with built-in sous vide, induction and gas, all on the cooking surface, along with an 18-inch steam oven and 30-inch convection oven below.
“Kitchen appliances are an investment that will be a part of your home and family for decades,” said Carley Knobloch, a tech lifestyle expert. “To make them future-proof, and able to grow with consumers’ needs and technology advances over time, will be a huge value-add for consumers. As someone with Signature Kitchen Suite appliances in my own kitchen, I look forward to the advancements and upgrades in the years to come.”
