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.

Utility update

Here's the poop: netting out what we always paid in electrical bills, and keeping in mind that we run our well pump and our geothermal heat pump electrically, we have paid $60 upcharge to heat the house and supply water in November, $200 in December (holiday bills), $130 in January. We'll see how February goes. Doesn't look as if we'll be paying $3000 to heat this winter, however, and we definitely need no backup heat source. So it works, dudes.
