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.

Team meeting

Many thanks to our friends at Burke Mtn. in Vermont; our weekend was memorable. Special thanks to Kirsten, Beverly and Paul for giving me the chance to go to a meeting of the Mid-Burke Philosophical Society. Fascinating.

Above see Lloyd and Doug Paddock during their morning discussion—or, as I should say, one of their morning discussions. A big thing with LEED certification is communication, and that means frequent, short chats involving all the various subs to make sure we are giving people what they need to succeed.

The Paddock crew is working so fast we may be able to get all the windows installed this week, and Rick Copeland's team is roofing. Right now, Doug's team is framing the west porch (see Red on the wall) which is being married to the SIPs, extending over the bulkhead entrance to the cellar. This will be the entrance to our mudroom, which we need with kids and dogs.
