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.

Sunday night blues

Flip, Chris D. and Neil C. (one of the salvage door team) have gone off to see Star Trek (the new movie), Madis has a sleep-over and Eva's coming home soon from weekending with friends (how many 8-year-olds weekend with friends?). That means..... YES! I am alone! Well, except for Luna, who since it's after supper hardly makes a difference.

Today, Flip and I worked on priming and prepping the annex for painting. Flip primed walls and ceilings, I Ready-Patched, sanded and caulked. We are, well, almost there on the 1/4th of the house we were working on... rather daunting when we look at the beamwork and high ceilings and nail holes and caulking spots everywhere else. But in our own, small way, we have made a start before flooring. Too bad the flooring will start this week and then force us to paint over the top of it. But such is life, and newspapers need new purpose these days (beyond my reading them in bed, which is one small benefit of aging).
