Walking Through a Real Life LEED-Homes Project

Well folks, it looks like Real Life LEED finally has some competition, and I couldn't be more excited... Gretchen and Scott Lambert, two architects from Columbia, SC decided not only to pursue LEED-Homes certification as they remodeled their home, but also to blog about the process!

The Lamberts in situ

Hot remodeling action!

This blog is an excellent mix of practical info about the remodel and technical info about the LEED-Homes process. It's the kind of blog I would write if I knew anything about LEED-Homes, which I don't. There's even a running tally of Yes, No, and Maybe points that's updated regularly. The only bad thing is that they're somewhat far into the process already, so you have a lot of reading to do to catch up. Start now!

Very cool - we also started a LEED for Homes project, the first in Rhode Island! We actually developed a whole website and blog around it and have gotten local and national sponsors involved to help promote and increase awareness on the process:


We'll add their blog to our list!
