This paper is about unique challenges and successes of designing and constructing a home to fit the United States Green Building Council (USGBC) Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) for Homes criteria. This particular project took place in Rolla, MO; a small town of about 16,000 people, 100 miles southwest of St. Louis and the house is to be transported to Washington D.C. to compete in the US Department of Energy's Solar Decathlon. There were many challenges that were associated with the building of this project, as well as many unique solutions.
