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.

Rainy day soffits

In this picture, you can see Bob on the scaffold and part of Scott inside. Red is around the corner to the right. They are putting up the soffits and roof trim in hopes we can roof the house--maybe as soon as Friday. (See previous post "SIPs and Roof Lines")

I also went up to meet with the duct man. As any LEED professional knows (and I'm quickly becoming one), ductwork is key to EQ LEED points. At first, I scared the dickens out of the duct man with our post and beam design. After he had explored a little deeper, however, he understood that we were talking about "best practices" and not new and strange duct design. Also, he saw that we would give him access.

The thing that C didn't have, that is to say, anywhere to put ductwork and plumbing pipes. We actually have some having built a raised second floor with a "hole" underneath for Stuff...
