Albuquerque custom home builder, Lee Michael Homes, is charged up after attending this year’s 2019 NAHB International Builders Show. The International Builders’ Show is organized by the National Association of Home Builders and is the largest light construction building industry tradeshow in the United States. It is the only event of its kind, focusing specifically on the needs, concerns, and opportunities that face home builders around the world.
