We had a terrific time in Boston last week at the 2009 Residential Design + Construction show. We filled our days with some great seminars on a variety of topics. Green building and sustainability played a part in just about every discussion we attended. It was good to catch up with old friends and colleagues while making some new ones at the same time. We left feeling optimistic about the industry trending toward a much more thoughtful and conscientious vision for residential design and building.
