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.

Morning day five

video
The house is going up in sections. This snip shows half of the upstairs west gable getting aligned by the crane operator this morning. Each panel has blue wallboard preinstalled onto it before being lifted into place. You can see that the panels overlap each other for a flush corner. The corners will then be sealed with sprayed foam insulation to eliminate leakage. Having the blueboard on the panels before installation eliminates a lot of cutting around beams, and thus, waste.
