NAHB is proud to announce a new consumer awareness initiative – and a great promotional opportunity for your projects – on the photo-sharing app Instagram.
“This initiative is designed to build awareness among the home buying audience of the craftsmanship and innovation of NAHB members,” said NAHB Chairman Granger MacDonald. “We want Instagram’s 700 million monthly users to see how our members are building homes, enriching communities and changing lives.”
Getting your company involved is simple: If you already have an Instagram account, just follow us @homebuildersand tag us in the pictures that you would like us to share.
If you don’t have an Instagram account, you can submit your photos, along with a short description of the home or a story about the home owners for whom you built or remodeled the home, at nahb.org/photos.
Either way, make sure to include the Instagram handle for other key people or companies that were involved in the project, along with photo credits.
There are lots of possibilities:
Please note, if you’re submitting before-and-after photos, it’s okay if the “before” images aren’t taken by pros.
Questions? We have answers. Please contact Camilo Cuba, NAHB senior brand marketing manager.
It is hard to believe that there are only nine days until our Holiday Celebration! We continue to share some great pictures from our past years events. These don't go that far back, only to 2013, held at White Clay Creek Country Club. Was a fun night. Do you recognize anyone? Make sure to tag them. Happy Thursday!
Its another THROWBACK THURSDAY! This week we go back to 2006 when the Leadership & Legacy Ball was held at the Sheraton in Dover. Looks like a fun time. Enjoy and have a great afternoon!
Our Holiday Celebration is fast approaching, December 9th. We thought between now and then, we would show pictures from our past years (formerly Leadership & Legacy Ball) so you can see how much fun they are. These pictures date back to 2012!
Enjoy and happy Thursday!
Thanks to changes that NAHB championed in the 2018 International Residential and Energy Efficiency Code, many home builders are now able bury their ductwork within the attic insulation — a potential savings of as much as $4,000 per home when compared to the cost of conditioning the entire attic.
What’s the best way to do this, and how can builders take advantage of this practice and produce an energy-efficient home at a lower cost? The Department of Energy is offering a free webinar Nov. 9 at 1 p.m. ET that explains the process.
Craig Drumheller, NAHB’s director of codes and standards, will be the speaker. Drumheller worked with NAHB codes staff and committee volunteers to introduce the buried duct proposal during the 2018 codes approval process.
Register today, and you may be able to save money on your next project.
We only went back to 2011 for these great pictures. Although, it is hard to believe that is six years ago already. Enjoy, have a wonderful Thursday, and tag your friends!
It's Throwback Thursday and we have some interesting pictures for you. We go back to 2002 for these winners. If you recognize anyone in these pictures, don't forget to tag them. Happy Thursday!
P.S. If anyone knows why some of these people were having their heads/faces painted, please let us know. We are very curious.
