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.

Moving on up

The crane has gone home until Thursday, when it will come back to finish the frame and start to float the SIPs onto it.

Todd's crew is today installing the second story joist system; on top of the horizontal beams you see here, there is a space where pipes, wires and ducts can be hidden between the first floor ceiling and the second story subfloor.

Post & beam fans know that one of their chief drawbacks is What To Do with Systems. Today should see the completion of this joist system, which I will then post for your information.
