New Trends: Top Construction Patterns of 2021

by John Wann 06/06/2021

From innovative technologies to updated best practices, residential construction continues to improve. 

As we look towards the future, here are seven home construction trends to consider:

Increased Safety

Safety is always a prime concern in the world of construction. As jobs can pose many risks and dangers, organizations focus on protecting their staff with innovative tools and techniques. Equipment is also enhanced, leading to fewer systems that are shared with others that could cause cross contamination of materials or accidents.

Living Materials

One very exciting trend in the world of residential construction involves the use of living materials. These include biological compounds that actually grow themselves. In recent experiments, these were applied to buildings to provide a range of benefits. Out of these biological materials, the most promising types are materials made of bacteria and fungi. Further experiments are being conducted to learn even more about this area of construction.

Remote Technology

Chances are you’ve heard about the recent popularity of drone technology. While these devices provide tons of fun for kids and content creators, they’re also very useful in residential construction. Construction experts are now using drones and remote technology to get a better view of the space, and to even transport materials from one location to another.

Focus On Minimalism

In building the next generation of homes, people are becoming minimalists. New homeowners are realizing the power of having less, and it’s carrying over to new residential home-building projects. Homeowners today are interested in designing smaller, more sleek homes with clean lines.

Bold Colors

The most trendy colors in a new home building, bold colors are in. People are building unique homes that pop with crazy, bold color palettes.

Innovative Materials

Residential construction is also seeing an increase in more innovative materials. People focus on easy assembly, so don’t expect to see anything too complicated with a new home build. Also, new homeowners care more about functionality, so they’re designing innovative living spaces with unique, practical areas. 

If you’re in the market for a new home, you may not know where to start. By following these residential construction trends, you can design a home everyone will love!

John Wann

My name is John Wann. And I have never sold anyone a home. 

What I have done is introduce people to houses, a community and one of the most beautiful areas of the country that I think they will love.

Frankly, there is a lot to love in this mountain area west of Denver. 

Yes, I am in sales. Of course. I have been in professional sales for more than 30 years and, more importantly, I have lived in the Evergreen area for more than 27 years. 

In short, I know the territory. 

I moved here from Atlanta, Georgia and never looked back. Every drive back “up the hill” from Denver feels like I am about to go on vacation. Again. That’s not a feeling you can get in many places in this world.

To be sure, I have intimate knowledge of the real estate here. But more, I know this community. 

If you're looking for a great restaurant with a cozy, mountain atmosphere. Just ask me. If you're looking for something less sedate, well, I know those places too. And I also know a lot of great hiking trails.

I am a member of the Institute for Luxury Home Marketing and a Certified Mountain Area Specialist. If you're coming from another part of the country that may not mean much to you, but I can help you avoid the pitfalls and understand the quirks of buying a home in the mountains. 

For people who are new to the area, this can ensure that you can find real happiness in a home here.

Simply, buying a house in the mountains is not the same as buying a house in Kansas City or Chicago.

For example, it makes little difference if you buy a south-facing house in Texas. But in the mountains, it can make all the difference between whether you get to your garage in winter or not.

Paying attention to such things and 100 others can ensure that you love your mountain home. Love your new community. And love the joys of mountain living. 

For me, it’s a privilege to pass along such insights.
