In this piece we talk to professionals about building and designing homes for the emerging millennial market. They discuss some of the things those particular consumers are looking for in a home. Austin Miller of Freedom Constructors and Austin Miller Custom Homes says green design and universal design are both important to younger home buyers as they intend to live there for a lifetime. He also tells us it's important for him to stay on top of trends and how social media makes his job easier when working with younger clients. Erica Lea Hendrix, owner and lead designer at Erica Lea Design Studios talks about the huge deficit of skilled tradespeople and how that adversely affects the building and design industry. 
She also discusses the trend of millennials building their dream home that is fully tech functional and not necessarily large, but more practical for their growing family to live in forever. She also discusses how good builders will adapt to the changing generation of home buyer.
