Oakley, possible LEED Gold home. It is a compact house on a small infill site in a walkable neighborhood. The large glass openings are concentrated on the south side to take advantage of passive solar. The exterior walls are offset double stud with spray foam insulation to limit thermal bridging and provide an air tight envelope. The heating system is hot water radiant. The cooling system uses high-efficiency mini-split heat pumps. There were two large oak trees on the site that had to be taken down. We harvested the lumber from them on site and have used it for the trim and stairs in the house. Here’s the house web site, “On what had been a small patch of grass in Oakley, stands a comfortable and efficient home. LEED for Homes was the tool that measured the success of its ambition to be environmentally sustainable.”

Cost: $15 per person. Free to USGBC Ohio members.
