1st LEED certified home built by high school students

This is a 1300 square foot, 3 bedroom, 2 bath, ranch style, modular home.
The students of CATEC's Carpentry Program have constructed last year’s home following the U.S. Green Building Council's LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) guidelines for sustainably built homes. Following these guidelines leads towards the construction of a more energy efficient, and environmentally friendly building. Several “Green” features of last year’s house include the following:

§ Hardi-plank Siding
§ Standing Seam Metal Roof
§ Non-toxic Cellulose Wall Insulation
§ Low VOC Caulks and Adhesives
§ Low E Argon-filled Windows
§ Energy Star Light Fixtures

The CATEC "green" home was auctioned off to the highest bidder(47K). The new homeowner was thrilled by her purchase and looks forward to getting her new home.
