Paul Lukez Architecture to build a small, energy plus home outside Boston

Paul Lukez Architecture (PLA) is planning to build a small, energy efficient home located in suburban Boston, designed for a schoolteacher who wanted to stay in the area despite the ever-rising cost of housing. This home is classified as “Energy Plus,” which means that it produces more energy than it needs. Boston-area solar panel installers Transformations, Inc . will partner with PLA to complete this project. The custom zero energy home will have a rooftop full of solar panels , as well as other energy smart features. Instead of paying a utility bill each month, this homeowner can sell the excess energy back to the utility company, earning a nice little bonus each month simply by living in his Energy Plus home. In 900-square-feet, the slant-roof home has two bedrooms with lofty spaces and great natural light . The home will cost under $300,000, which is remarkably competitive for the suburban Boston real estate market. Construction of this efficient Energy Plus home is planned for this summer. + Paul Lukez Architecture + Transformations, Inc.
