LEED house in Dallas

alanmalm | Posted in Energy Efficiency and Durability on

I saw the video and read the info on the site and have some questions. Is there a list of energy efficient materials used in this (or other certified LEED homes)? I live in Dallas area and am interested. I have a friend that is also interested in possibly moving back to Texas to build energy efficient homes.

For example:
They mention Daikin air conditioner and a rainwater tank but no specifics, They made a point of mentioning the floors but not exactly what they were made of or if they had radiant floor heating underneath. I would like model numbers and maybe links to website to look at why this material was chosen.

    You didn't provide a link, but I'm guessing that you are talking about this video:
    LEED-Gold Home in Dallas, Texas

    The architect for that home was John Brooks, who has frequently posted comments on GBA. I don't think that John Brooks would mind me providing a link to a web page that lists his company's contact information. Here is the link:

    It's possible that John Brooks can provide you more information on the house featured in the video.
