Designed and built by Blue Heron of Las Vegas, TNAH 2013 is based on the Desert Contemporary style, with a focus on outdoor living. The theme of the house this year is green building in Las Vegas, and the builder has found a way to incorporate green technology throughout the design.

The 6,000-square-foot house has achieved Emerald status under the green building certification process administered by the NAHB Research Center and based on the ICC 700-2008 National Green Building Standard™. Emerald is the highest of the four levels of green building achievement that the standard recognizes.
