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.

Sorry I haven't been posting. What I have been doing is last minute tasks like screwing down and plugging squeaky floorboards, painting the bathrooms, filling nail holes, raking in grass seed, positioning sprinklers, filling out paperwork, getting the electrical finish done (which involves running out to the hardware a million times for forgotten things like closet flourescents) and falling, stupified, into bed. Today, Flip is sanding the floors, I am staining the upstairs floor to cover up it's true identity as the cheapest possible pine flooring, and hoping to get a couple of coats of finish on before the end of Monday. Tuesday starts plumbing finish.

Energy Star will give your electrician enough CFL bulbs to trick out your house if you get them the list, so (with our usual talent) we left this until last, which means we have a bunch of fixtures up with no bulbs. Anyway, we're getting close and if I can, I'll put up some pictures of the new floors Monday.

Plus, it's all harder with a starlet daughter.
