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.

Joist system

This is the access system I referred to. Note the 9.25" space that will now exist between the ceiling of the first floor and the floor of the second.

We used a truss joist system as well and it really helped with the air distribution. A word of caution: do not leave any 'openings' into the plenum uncovered. Our cat disappeared for two days and I seriously hope he didn't leave any presents in there.
