Homes by Architects Tour


A home we recently staged will be on the AIA Homes by Architects tour this year.  It was an honor to work on a home by award-winning architect, Christian Dean.  

A modern, sustainable infill home in the heart of Linden Hills, this home is Green Star certified and features a 4.9 kw solar array on the roof top. It serves as a model for modern sustainable home design and building practices.

This house does not maximize the allowed building width, instead providing a broad 'solar' yard to the south. Southern exposure is maximized for the solar array and passive solar strategies for the home. The result is a narrow street profile and a well-sited home that does not crowd neighboring structures. Landscaping was also designed toward sustainability, featuring low-mow fescue in lieu of traditional turf.

September 17-18, 2016. 10a - 5pm both days. Get your tickets here.
