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.

Last panel is up.

Granted, the guys have much to do, not the least of which is screwing everything down, but the last roof panel went up this afternoon. Now, it's framing out openings with "nailers" (boards to frame around openings so there is something the carpenters can nail into—rather than just insulation), foam sealing all the cracks and crevasses, cleaning up the small stuff and then, they'll be done. Probably Monday will see the last of SCPB.

With weather on the horizon, Lloyd and I were cutting pieces of scrap plastic to put over the openings when SCPB is done finishing them, hoping to keep the rain, snow, sleet and whatever else looms from getting inside. We're hoping to tarp the roof tomorrow before the clouds burst.
