The remaining three include the latest in design, materials, and products, ranging in size from 1685 to 3000 square feet that are being built by Palm Harbor’s Plant City, Florida and Albemarle, North Carolina plants. One of the model homes will be displayed at the NexGen06 site, while the remaining three homes will be part of Show Village '06. All of the new model homes will provide visitors with a hands-on introduction to the latest innovations in home safety, home air quality, energy efficiency, and computer technology. Shaw carpet styles being featured in the homes include Royal Pavilion, Anything Goes! Remarkable, Elegant Accenture, Sophisticated, Inner Beauty, and Masala II.
