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.

Good news, bad news


Good news, we get to use these fantastic salvage French doors. Bad news, they tested positive for lead paint. These and the 18 other interior doors came from an antique being torn down in Newton, Massachusetts. Drew, Neil, Flip and I took them out of this house complete with casing and hardware. Now, I have to strip the paint and reprime. In this shot, you see this pair already stripped and being primed. Only 18 to go. Luna thinks it stinks.

The upside is you can now tell people you are a "stripper."

This is a bonus for the fifty-plus crowd...
