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.

Verification on two fronts

Well, we have the document that states the following Electrician's code determination:
"If the equipment is prewired and is approved by a recognized testing laboratory the Artesian Well contractor may install it into the well only." From 1986.

Pretty clear indication, but as I say, I'm not fighting today. I'm preparing LEED paperwork, which I will post in the order in which I complete it.

First section is Innovation Design, for which we are going for extra points under ID 1.2 Integrated Project Team, ID 1.4 Design Charrette, and ID 2.3 Third Party Durability Management Verification. Note that the prerequisites have been met (Preliminary Rating, Durability Planning, and Durability Management) but I must verify those as well. There are eight sections in total, some larger than others.
