NextGen home at 2011 IBS donated to veteran

Orlando, Fla. -- The 2011 NextGen "Flex-Home" is focused on four home-building buzzwords: green, efficient, safe and digital.

Another term could be "patriotic."

The modular home currently residing in the IBS Show Village in the parking lot outside the Orange County Convention Center here in Orlando will soon be shipped away to a veteran in need through the Rebuilding Together charity and Sears' Heroes at Home.

The end recipient of the NextGen Home will be U.S. National Guard and Army Veteran Waldemar Alameda, 39, and his family located in Tampa, Fla. The Alameda family includes Waldemar, his wife and two children, a son 12 and a daughter 11. They reside in Tampa to be near the local Veterans Administration trauma facility.
