What do you get for 1.1million dollars? Double pane windows! WooHooo!

How about insulation between the rafters and keeping your electric bill below $380.00 a month? Wow, that's some wonderful stuff.


LEED certification is prescriptive. You can reach certification by framing a few thousand dollars behind glass on the roof (solar panels), while not giving a care about the actual structure and making it energy efficient. Use some old reclaimed barn boards and earn enough credit to ship granite from the other side of the planet to install on the counter. Make sure the construction workers don't smoke inside while working or you might lose your chance at the rating. This is not the solution people. Its a false promise.


Check out Passive House US. Performance based certification that brings the structure to the point where choice of heating system makes little difference in monthly costs.
