Taking steps toward realization / by Scott Newland

It's a three-ring circus!

With the property in hand, we are finalizing construction materials and details, making selections, and gathering salvaged materials for incorporation into the new home.  At the same time, we've hired an independent rater to guide us through our dual-path LEED and GreenStar processes, are running building science evaluations on the exterior envelope assemblies, and are firming up the home's bones with a structural engineer.  Finally, we are slowly but surely prepping our current home for when we'll list it through our realtor.

Oh: And there's real, billable work to be done, too!
