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, so Will D'Arrigo from CSG stopped by Friday to look at the ductwork. The ducts will be pressurized to make sure that they are within a range of being air-tight, and he determined to wait a bit before doing this test while I do a little more. In the shot above (NOT our house), it is done correctly; with painted mastic along the seams and tape along the joins. In our house, we did pretty well taping the joins but need to paint on the mastic. Dave and Ken have done an awesome job, and plenty of it--so I have a job this week, tweaking the riveted areas to make them further airtight.
