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.

Five weeks and counting.

Here's our perimeter drain pipe (the little green thing). Isn't it sweet? Once the white pine seedlings grow up around it again, you won't even see it.

The word from South County is February 16 to start raising timber frame. That means we'll button up the decking, cover it and...wait. But we have some geothermal digging to do, and a few other items (like utility trenches and such). If you're in the neighborhood that (school vacation) week (drat it), bring your hot chocolate and watch it rise. It'll be fun...
