From custom made cabinets and outdoor grills to energy efficient spray foam insulation, these houses include special features to improve the construction and efficiency of the houses. Rhonda Trower, BASCO committee chair said home styles to be shown include French, contemporary and country styles, with open floor plans that home buyers look for.
The Canterra house also includes an engineered foundation system known as a post tension slab. Jennings said this holds the house together as one whole piece of concrete, which helps preserve the structure of the house since the soil in Oklahoma tends to shift.
The festival aims to showcase reputable builders, including those who are Certified Professional Builders and Certified Green Professionals. “We want to showcase their work and the latest trends in design,” Dana Kelso, BASCO executive officer, said.
