Event Description

Fine Homebuilding, along with Green Building Advisor and Keep Craft Alive, are bringing together building industry experts, influencers, and manufacturers for 2+ days and more than 50 hours of an intense, collaborative learning experience. This seminar will feature more than a dozen experts from various areas of the industry, each presenting on topics within their area of expertise, all in service of the same agenda—building better homes.

In addition to  time for networking (including 7 meals), the 2+ day event centers around 50 hours of learning in two types of sessions:

Insight Sessions: This is the main forum for the exchange of ideas at the Summit. It is the coming together of experts from various facets of the industry to present on a topic within their area of expertise. Speakers will take the stage and present their topic to the audience in less than 20 minutes. 

• Design with a Builder in Mind

• The Future is Prefab

• Building Science Puzzles

• Why Buildings Fail

Breakout Sessions: This is the in-depth portion of the Summit. Attendees will have their choice of 3 to 4 seminars for each 90 minute block of Breakout sessions. Each industry expert will present a focused study of a specific topic—some with slideshows, other with props, and even some live clinics. Examples include:
