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.
