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.

One barn, check.

Okay, so the barn's done. Now, about that house. The foundation, although done, has not had the slab poured, and it snowed 15 inches here so there's just a little snow on the gravel. Since we need precise measurements about where the ground level actually IS, this means... well, Flip's going to Shovel Out The Foundation. Or more accurately, he's going to shovel the foundation into piles that the backhoe can lift out, since even Flip can't swing heavy snow up and out an 8 foot wall.

Since the weather warmed up today and will stay that way tomorrow, it could be Christmas Day that Flip shovels heavy, slushy snow. Good thing we're eating at someone else's house.

And Santa comes tonight.
