 For Boston Magazine's tenth annual Design Project, general contractor Ridgeview Construction has reinvented a modular home to be completely net-zero with minimal waste.

Home owners, Natalie and Tom Treat we thrilled at the opportunity to be financially sustainable and live environmentally, and offered their home for the project when the original homeowners stepped out. Shane Carter of Ridgeview has outfitted the home with solar panels that will generate approximately the same amount of energy consumed by the building. In addition to solar energy the home features a heat pump heating system that reduces green house gas emissions by 60%. Ridgeview also worked with designer Lisa Wasserman on the project to tie the home together with an appealing style. This fall following the completion of the home, the Treats will host multiple open houses allowing the public an opportunity to experience a modular eco-friendly home. These upcoming open houses are perfect for homeowners looking to renovate their homes in an environmental manner.
