2016 - Farmhouse at Emerson Green Idea House

The 2016 Idea House in Emerson Green, an innovative development in Devens, MA, featured an updated farmhouse with a prominent front gable, double-hung windows, and a homey front porch. In partnership with NOW Communities, Union Studio Architecture, and our valued sponsors and contributors, This Old House showcased the highest quality and most efficient building products in a sustainable, low-maintenance home that uses less than a third of the energy of a typical new house of similar size.
