Don't do it, not without a home evaluation first. It happens every year, the weather turns off cold or hot and here come the high efficiency ads from heating and cooling companies. fixing components of a home will not give you the results you really want, houses are systems and should be evaluated as such, so what do you do...

well the verdict is out, if they can do it anyone can!! this was a great project and what a benefit to the homeowners. I believe ( I could be wrong) that this is the first Habitat home certified at this level! the national organization has comitted to build under the LEED H program, but this was the first for the local chapter, and I believe the first to be certified in the state!!

I just had to comment on the NAHB green building program. saying that it will take over the LEED H Green Buidling Program by the USGBC is a comment that really does not need to be made. Comments like this are what can lead to limiting progress instead of increasing it, we can really exist together, and they are two really different programs with two differnt markets.....NAHB had to define green building to its builder members before it was defined for them-this is all good, but two really different programs with different goals...
