Live from Int'l Builder Show: Timothy Dahl of Charles & HudsonBy Marvin Windows
It’s Day Two of the 2011 NAHB International Builders’ Show in Orlando, Fla. To sort through some of the new products and trends and to take a pulse on the homebuilding industry, we interviewed Timothy Dahl, founder and editor of the popular home improvement blog Charles and Hudson.
MLuxe: Every year, there are a few must-see products. What’s the coolest thing you’ve seen so far?
Dahl: There are so many, but the Autoslide DIY-installed automatic sliding door-opener is definitely a cool product. The doggy door feature is the best. It senses the height of a pet and opens only far enough to let them in or out.
How have the needs of the average homeowner changed in the past few years?
We went from wanting the largest home on the block to taking more responsibility for the resources we consume and being more involved in the home building process.
