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.

End day six

So, after a grueling day of cold and wind, the SCPB team have the north and south faces on the west wing and have staged the panels for tomorrow's crane work. Sunday's rain did us no favors; we could have brought our ice skates and had quite a time on the floor of the house this morning.

Last Friday, the Boston Globe came to take pictures of the project, which they anticipate using on an article on Building Green on a Budget; our hope is we can put the big ole ky-bosh on the rumors that you have to be rich to go green.

Richardson Wells came up today to schedule the rest of the drilling of our well for the geothermal; Todd from SCPB asked us to delay him until next week—the crane makes enough noise to drown his commands, and he doesn't need us making more. Understood, and obeyed; we have to bend with the winds. This week, they sure do seem strong. And cold.
