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.

Getting there is half the...

Here's the porch framed. In these shots Chris D., center, is finishing the decking and Lloyd is widening the opening for the mason to pour the hearth area required by code. The porch itself adds a great deal to the space of the house, and as it's on the east side only darkens the house in the morning. This afternoon, Chris and I were hanging fascia board so that we can move on to roofing shortly. I was "wing man;" a nice way of saying I held up the other end while Chris did all the work.

Meanwhile, inside, Atlas Insulation was putting batts of insulation in all the walls as we are still expecting the board guys on Monday. I'll be doing some more tomorrow, but we're looking pretty good at this point; all I have to do is a small area around the staircase.
