2013 Show Highlights
|Idea Home by Perrino Builders
The show will be highlighting an Idea Home built by
Perrino Builders. The Tuscan-styled ranch combines new trends with
Craftsman-infused features to encourage a sense of community inside and
outside the home. Before entering the 4,000 square foot house, guests

can bond outdoors. Inside, the warm and inviting kitchen meets any home
entertainer's dream with an island that seats eight, walk-in butler's
pantry, dining room overlooking a wine cellar and large dinette area
with seamless glass to let the outdoor beauty in. Spacious gallery

room; and home office featuring eye-catching triangular architecture.
