This project involved a 1924 Colonial home that had fallen into severe disrepair before coming up for sale. As part of the much-needed renovation, the new homeowner - two Steven Winter Associates employees - wanted to eliminate onsite combustion and produce as much of their operating electricity as possible. Other goals included lower embodied energy materials and a healthy indoor environment. LEED v4.1 for Homes offered one platform to address energy, health and materials. The home was gutted down to the foundation, framing and floors before the year-long renovation. After the first 8 months of occupancy (July-February), the home produced 14% more energy than it consumed
