We just got back from Greenbuild in Chicago and are a little more tired than expected. That is probably because we had to lug this sweet piece of hardware back with us . . .
That’s right, the 100k Project actually won the USGBC’s national award for LEED for Homes Project of the Year. We are very grateful for this recognition and hope to make it the first of many. We also hope to parlay this win into an actual speaking engagement at Greenbuild next year.
We are thankful (a fitting emotion this time of year) for everyone who worked on this project. We would particularly like to thank ISA for their architectural expertise and complete buy in to our crazy ideas and Magrann Associates for getting us through the LEED process and making sure we did what we needed to do for that Platinum rating. We also want to thank all of you out there following along, commenting, suggesting, critiquing, encouraging and just generally making us feel like this project was worth doing.
We will post more info on this award as it comes out, but for now, you can see the profile that was posted at Greenbuild in PDF form if you are interested. Thanks again and stay tuned. This is still just the beginning.
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.
