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.

Sills among us

Installing sill plates today and yes, Will, there's cellulose sill seal under there. Note the third layer--Lloyd's gift to Flip as, at 6'4", he's going to have a near miss on the ceiling in the cellar. The extra plate is giving Flip an extra 1.75" so he can maybe walk without cracking his skull.

Flip always wanted a tall cellar, but thanks to ground water levels, he's not going to get one. But then again, he has a barn, so he won't complain too much. And the girls can still play ping pong until they outgrow us.
