Crossing 19th century architecture with forward-thinking 21st century empty nesters =  A retro-fitted LEED certified house!

This residence in Squirrel Hill is among the first residences in Pennsylvania to try  the residential standards of the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Green Building Rating System, or LEED for Homes certification.

Nationally a green leader, Pennsylvania ranks very high in the number of LEED certified buildings in a state-by-state comparison.

What do you think is most important to do to be sustainable/support the environment in your home?
