Meet Melissa and Jim - they built their dream home a few years ago, but this wasn’t like any other home. Their main goal was to have a healthy home for their kids, and one that would also save on energy and environmental resources. In this video, Rise Founder and CEO Matt Daigle, takes you on a tour of this stunning LEED Gold home, located in beautiful Minneapolis. This modern home boasts features such as solar panels, ground source heat pumps, heavy use of reclaimed materials, and a beautiful green roof. LEED is one of the most widely recognized sustainability standards and stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design. It was created by the US Green Building Council and has been adopted in Canada by the Canada Green Building Council. The goal of the LEED standard is to guide today’s building industry towards best practices for sustainability. LEED covers much more than just energy. It goes by points, and you need a certain number of points to reach each level. The LEED Rating System counts eight categories: 1. Innovation & Design Process (11 points available) 2. Location & Linkages (10 points available) 3. Sustainable Sites (22 points available) 4. Water Efficiency (15 points available) 5. Energy & Atmosphere (38 points available) 6. Materials & Resources (16 points available) 7. Indoor Environment Quality (21 points available) 8. Awareness & Education (3 points available) Ordinary code-compliant building practices are considered prerequisites and are awarded 0 points. In each category, better building practices earn 1 point and the best building practices are awarded 2 points. There are four levels you can reach: LEED Certified: 45 – 59 points LEED Silver: 60 – 74 points LEED Gold: 75 – 89 points LEED Platinum: 90 – 136 points Your home is probably the biggest investment you’ll ever make and has a huge impact on your happiness. So it’s worth it to build it right. #minneapolis #housetour #leed ------------------------------------------------------------- SUBSCRIBE TO OUR CHANNEL! ------------------------------------------------------------- We hope you enjoyed this video!
