Designed by architect Mike Stauffer, AIA, and constructed by Glenn Layton Homes, the HGTV Smart Home 2013 measures approximately 2,400 square feet and features more than 1,000 square feet of covered porches, decks and pool.
Smart home technology connects many of the home’s appliances and devices, and allows occupants to monitor energy use and control home systems such as security, interior climate, lighting and other electronics.
The HGTV Smart Home 2013 is built to meet the Consumer Electronics Association’s TechHome Rating specifications for technology infrastructure.
“The features and functionality of this home are like nothing we’ve ever offered in HGTV home giveaways, and set the standard for creative spaces and ways that consumers can use emerging technology to improve their homes,” said Jack Thomasson, HGTV house planner.
