It was a pleasure to work on this Kitchen/ Dining room makeover with interior design writer Erin Gates. By bringing down the partition wall between two rooms, we created a much larger, elegant entertaining space that feels inviting to friends, guests and family. Some delicious meals will be cooked in this kitchen, no doubt! For more details & photos of before and after go to Erin's blog, Elements of Style.

Where to buy American made building products

Made-in-America logo

Want to build a house made entirely from American-made building products?

Everything from the nails, screws and bolts, to the steel, staples and bathtub is made in the United States. In all there are more than 120 products from more than 33 states. However, the builders do acknowledge that using American products can be more expensive.

A box of nails is $5 more than those made in China and steel is $146 more a bundle. Even though certain goods are more expensive, in total, the cost of the house is nearly identical. Currently, the all-American home, which is not yet finished , is running only 1 to 2 percent more than a foreign-sourced house.

In Bozeman, Montana, Anders Lewendal is hard at work building a home he hopes will be a blueprint for creating jobs in America. Lewendal is convinced that if every builder bought just 5 percent more American materials it would create 220,000 jobs.

Here’s the list of products Lewendal is using to build the Made in America house.
