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.

Okay, here's where we are: Dave from Duct-works is coming back tomorrow to tie in his ducting to the new Water Furnace. Chris Lombardo of Lombardo Plumbing & Heating is starting the rough tomorrow. Eli Richardson of Richardson Wells will be tinkering with the well and geothermal furnace. Bill Anderson, the mason, is still moving up the house and then will proceed inside. Sam and Paul are trying to figure out if they can shingle the house for as much as I can afford to pay them, and Flip and I are moving the rest of the dreck from our storage unit (why did we save that stuff again?) into the barn. Still searching for flooring. I am varnishing the furniture serving as bath vanities, finalizing my plumbing fixtures and making a long shopping list for HD or Lowes. My brother Chris is arriving in a week and a half, and then once again we will have too many bodies.

Right now, though, it's peaceful, quiet and lovely there with the birds a-cheeping.
