10 members of the US Green Building Council (USGBC) – Chicago Chapter came by on Friday for a tour of the Greenest Garage and the single family home. The group included architects, landscape designers, engineers, builders and realtors. I think they had a good time.
Meanwhile, ‘Casey’ the brick subcontractor and his team installed the lintels on the window sills.
All the brick (except for the new lintels) was either a) left existing b) reused from the site after walls were moved or windows created, or c) came from the Antique Brick company located in Chicago which sells salvaged brick from demolition on other projects.
