Product innovation is a crucial part of home building. The trick is knowing when to pick and when to pass.

Weve assembled a collection of products that we think is innovative in ways large and small, from drywall that cleans the air to a water filtration system that uses Wi-Fi technology to run diagnostics and let you know when its time to change the filter. Every product will not be right for every house you design or build, but we will wager that there is at least a handful that could offer your buyers and clients many years of convenience and satisfaction.
