  • Hot water dispensers next to the ice and cold water options in your fridge door.
  • Smokeless fireplaces which burn denatured alcohol (bioethanol)
  • Tiny backup generators which can be placed as close as 18” to the home
  • Wall outlets with USB ports
  • Sauna’s incorporated into master bathrooms
  • In-home elevators
  • Combination gas/electric BBQ’s with rotisserie & smoker
