The 2014 Boston Magazine Dream Home will be open for public tours starting on September 10th. For the last ten years, the magazine has been teaming with a local builder, architect, designer and a charity to build a house that focuses on a specific kind of living style. This year’s house, located in Salisbury, MA, is a single family house that feature’s “net-zero” energy living.
The design/build team this year is Ridgeview Construction, Kaplan Thompson Architects, and the design coordinator is Lisa Wasserman Sivan. Boston Children’s Hospital is the non-profit beneficiary.
The roof on the back of the house is covered with solar panels.
The amazing console table above was made by my friend Ray Bachand of 60Nobscot.
Here is a time-lapse video of the contraction of this modular home:
