Kohler Elevance Bathtub Raises the Bar for Universal Design

Universal design continues to influence product design and this years Builders Show was no different. We saw a number of great products but one of our favorites was the Elevance Bathtub from Kohler. Unlike other universal design bathtubs the Kohler Elevance uses a rising wall entrance feature instead of a […]

C&H Best of 2011 Builders Show

The 2011 Builders Show was held in Orlando Florida this year and although it is still much smaller than it has been in years past it was about the same size as the show in Las Vegas last year which is a good sign as it hasn’t contracted anymore. See […]

Harvest Your Own Rainwater with the Rainwater Pillow from 2010 Builders’ Show

With all of the rain we’ve been getting in Southern California it would be amazing to put that water to use instead of continuing to draw on finite resources that come from reservoirs which as everyone knows are quickly receding. The Rainwater Pillow is an ingenious product that allows you […]

BEHR Paint Demo at Builders’ Show 2010

The BEHR paint booth at IBS 2010 made great use of their space. Paint cans floating by parachute added whimsy that most displays were lacking and we loved the little BEHR model truck. They also made use of an interactive touch display which made finding a BEHR paint distributor almost […]

Trucks of Builders’ Show 2010

Trucks of Builders’ Show 2010

Every builder needs a truck and the big 3 did not disappoint as they had their burliest and baddest trucks on display but none were as cool as the DeWALT Ford F-350 we saw at CES this year. Surprisingly the truck lineup at IBS 2010 didn’t include any foreign options. […]
