    Brett,
    If you encounter any unfamiliar terms on the GBA Web site, you can always check our glossary. (There is a glossary link at the upper right corner of each page.) Our glossary defines LEED this way:
    "Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design. LEED for Homes is the residential green building program from the United States Green Building Council (USGBC). While this program is primarily designed for and applicable to new home projects, major gut rehabs can qualify."

    Learn more at the USGBC Web site:

    GBA subscribers can read more about the LEED for Homes rating system here:
