habitat for Humanity Boise awarded LEED H platnum!!! Main The Durable Green Home
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 will let the offical press realease tell most of the story, but just had to get the word out. it would be interesting to get the utility data from this home, i would imagine it to heat and cool for next to nothing. the home features foam walls-yes all foam with metal studs on the eterior and interior but totaly seperated. conditioned crawl space and condiitoned attic, mechanical ventilation ( of course) and high eff heating and cooling with Energy star northwest BOP minimum standards. Wow neat to be involved in a project like this, hopefully we will see more.

Just curious what type of control/automation systems are being employed?

no automations sytems, remember this is habitat for humanity. there is mechanical ventilation because the home is so tight that operates 24 hours for hospital grade fresh air ( with energy recovery) supplied to the home. should see a press release on this soon.
