Holliston LEED House

This is the story of a family who built the first LEED "green" house in Holliston, Massachusetts. We were trying to spend no more than it would take to build an ordinary house,and maybe even succeeded. The dust is still settling.

Doors, Doors, Doors

Thanks to greenGoat (greenGoat.org), the green salvage organization in Somerville, Mass, we found out that a shingle style house in Newton was being deconstructed before demolition. So we called out the troops--Boss, Budman, Flip and Erin--and went in on Sunday to take 18 beautiful interior doors, complete with frames, to use in the new house. Sure, they'll need to be deleaded but what are friends for? If that wasn't enough, we also got two sets of tall, skinny french doors (see photo) and a bunch of great wainscoating. Fabu and another half point on our way!
