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.

Foam insulation

I'm sure all my readers know this... but why not say it again? Once your windows are in, but before putting on the extension jambs, be sure to insulate the area between the window and the wall (see bulging beige stuff above). Although it means going window to window and trimming it back to the casing with a utility knife after you foam it in, it will pay off with years of cozy warmth in winter. This goes for doors, too.
