Jackson Design Build’s “New Idea Home” Strikes Gold at CARE Awards

The New Idea Home, a Denver Parade Home from Jackson Design Build that showcases the latest in universal design, received the Gold Award for Best Infill Project at the 2017 Colorado Awards for Remodeling Excellence (CARE) Awards in Lone Tree, Colorado.

“We pulled out all the stops on this one,” said Billy Jackson of Jackson Design Build. “We brought together many manufacturers, vendors, and subcontractors, including some new partners, to make sure every element of the home met or exceeded the highest national universal design standards.”

Highlights of the New Idea Home include:

Barrier-free entry in the front, back, garage, and bathrooms
Designated space for a four-level elevator
Wide staircases, doors, and hallways
Fully electronic “smart home” systems integration
ENERGY STAR certification to conserve resources
Indoor airPLUS certification to ensure a clean indoor air environment

In addition to accessible-ready features, the home is a comprehensive, modern, urbanist, 25- room retreat. With 6,174 square feet spread over four living levels, the home meets the needs of a growing family, active adult family, empty nesters, or a one-two-three-four generation household.

While the home appraised for $50,000 more than its sale price and sold for full price to the first customer who saw it, success was by no means inevitable. Finding the ideal site in Denver’s booming housing market required extensive patience and research. Once Jackson Design Build found the site, the booming market struck again and delayed the permitting process, wreaking scheduling havoc on a show home with many moving parts. By expertly adjusting the schedule for maximum efficiency, the company was able to execute the project on budget and on time for the 2016 Parade of Homes.“Crafting quality homes on time and on budget is what we do best,” said Dave Jackson, Jackson Design Build’s Founder and Principal. “We’re a veteran Colorado builder that relishes a good challenge like The New Idea Home.”The Colorado Awards for Remodeling Excellence, known as the CARE awards, are the largest and longest running contest recognizing remodeling of all types, including both commercial and residential.
