“Buoyant” is the feeling Richard Jenson describes upon viewing the construction of the Net-Zero home PLA designed for him and his wife, Pat DeLeeuw. Construction is well underway since we released the first video in a three-part series detailing the project’s design. This second video focuses on the construction of a NZE home (Video 2), while the third video will highlight the sustainable engineering concepts (Video 3).

We are excited to share with you this video that tells the story about what makes for a successful NZE home, from the perspective of the home owner, contractor and architect.


Our dream at Paul Lukez Architecture has been to design residences that produce more energy from renewable resources than they consume. Now this dream is becoming a reality as we design and oversee construction of a Net-Zero home in Harvard, Massachusetts.

Over the next nine months, we will produce three short videos to highlight the home’s design phase (Video 1), construction (Video 2), and sustainable engineering concepts (Video 3). Below is the first video; look for our next video early this fall, when construction of the house is well underway.

Dear Paul, what a beautiful idea, spacious, yet couzy, light and airy. I love it and integrated into the landscape is very appeling.
