From the beginning, commercial buildings and their architects have been a key element of Acme Brick Company's success.
Coming off the greatest disruption in a century, in 2022 almost everything on planet Earth - from hobbies to homebuilding - will be prefaced by the effects of the COVID pandemic. For builders and homebuyers, one trend is certain. Uncertainty will rule.
In surprisingly large numbers, many young families are moving back to the small communities they left when they went away to college. Call it another effect of the pandemic, a search for a simpler lifestyle or any number of other reasons, young people who have the flexibility to work from anywhere are deciding that there’s no place like their hometown.
Each year, Acme Brick compiles an annual What’s Hot and What’s Not trends list outlining the top 10 home design trends and 10 trends that have become outdated. Despite the record setting year we have had, the show must go on - in other words, let the trends begin!
How would you feel about having complete strangers show up at your home, planning to spend the night, about 20 times each month? For more than 4 million homeowners, they would be overjoyed!

Why do so many homeowners insist on having hardwood floors in their homes? They love the rich, warm look of hardwood and they feel the timeless solidity when walking on it. The story of hardwood – how it’s made and the many varieties – is fascinating.
For several, post-World War II generations of families, owning a home has been an important part of the “American Dream.” Unfortunately, a “perfect storm” of factors has caused the American Dream to feel more like a nightmare for homebuyers. These include historically low mortgage rates; the largest population cohort in history - those born after 1980 - starting families; a pandemic that fundamentally changed how families worked and educated their children; and low yields in traditional investments that propelled investment in residential real estate.
