Residential Design Committee / back to Committee page »

Home sweet home. People who design and build residential projects meet up to look at topics like energy-efficient green homes, custom homes, building codes related to single- and two-family dwellings, and helpful technologies. Look for residential design workshops at the BSA's Architecture Boston Expo each fall, too.
