Quick Review of LEED Checklist for Platinum Target

Now that we are getting close to groundbreaking I guess it’s time to take a quick look at the LEED for Homes Checklist to make sure we are still on target. Originally the goal for the project was only Silver, but since meeting with MaGrann for our design charrette and preliminary rating, we realized that Platinum was as very achievable goal. Shocking on such a small budget, but true.

After pulling up the original spreadsheet that MaGrann filled out for us, I realized that we have made a few changes and upgrades that should allow us a few additional points. After completing a full review of the LEED Checklist, it now looks as if we have a ten point buffer to obtain the Platinum rating! This is still dependant on the home being classified as a two bedroom home which should not be a problem, but is not a certainty given our open floorplan and almost complete lack of doors (at one point I wanted a curtain on the bathroom to eliminate all doors).

Due to the home’s small size, it gets six whole points knocked off of the Platinum threshold, which takes the target score from 90 to 84. Currently, the 100K House’s point total is at 94 which gives us our ten point buffer. We could screw up any number of things and still get Platinum. That makes me feel better as I am imagining a few things will not go as planned.

For a review of the project’s LEED process early on, check out some of these previous posts:

Ten point buffer! Double digits! How ’bout them apples? LEED only for the wealthy? LEED can only be done for a premium? Please! C’mon!

If you enjoyed reading this post I can promise you'll love our new writing over at Postgreen Homes. Yeah, we know that's the same thing your favorite band said and their new album is nowhere near as good as their early stuff, but seriously, we are actually still getting better.

There also isn't much conversation to be had here . . . at least not with us. So come on over to the Postgreen Homes Blog and tell us what you think of our new(ish) digs and crazy ideas. We will be sure to tell you what we think of your opinion.

A green roof will get you a couple points as well. I haven’t seen any mention of it in the 100K house.

I saw a modular green roof product the other day that looks like it would be an option:

That would help in a number of areas such as heat-island and storm water runoff.

Unfortunately, a green roof is just out of the scope of our budget for this project. We will definitely offer it as an option in the future. Thanks for the link!
