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.

One story

Here sits the second story of the house; the walls are lying down on the subfloor already assembled.

On Monday, each wall will be picked up and slotted into holes into the cellar that were precut. Then, this giant unit will be lifted at once and inserted into the space where the second floor goes. I'm not sure of the order of events, but SCPB sure is. They have it all staged so the sections won't get tangled up.

Anyone coming to watch, please park at the high school and hike up... parking is at a premium this week!

Yes, we had a springlike 58 degree day and the site turned to a morass. SCPB just lifted those timbers up higher so they didn't get dirty. Now we're back to 20-30s so things should firm up by Monday when the crane comes. I hope.
