A few years ago, Chad Ludeman and Nic Darling of Postgreen embarked on a journey “to build a LEED Platinum home for $100,000 in hard construction costs.” Lucky for you, they not only succeeded but documented the entire process on their popular 100K House blog!

While their blog covers topics beyond the original project and is definitely a recommended read as a whole, I wanted to highlight some of the posts I found most helpful for LEED APs embarking on a LEED-Homes project… or you could just go directly to the 20 posts under the LEED category:
To LEED or Not To LEED
LEED Design Charrette Today
Results of the LEED Design Charrette
LEED for Homes Basic Process and Fees
LEED for Homes – Home Size Adjustment Calculations
Innovation & Design Process – LEED for Homes Review
Construction Waste Management Recap
LEED Landscaping Requirements
New readers may not be aware of a similar that that I profiled a over a year and a half ago (has it been that long???), The Lambert LEED Home. Know of other great LEED Homes resources that deserve attention? Let us know by leaving a comment.
