EOP's Connection to 1st LEED Home in Kentucky

Resident architectural associate, Daniel Ware, worked on the Resonance House during his last semester at the University of Kentucky’s College of Design. Daniel acted as the site supervisor during construction.

Commenting on the effort to conserve materials during construction, Daniel Ware said, “We had a greater sense of what was going into the project, what was being purchased, and what was going out. The fun part was trying to use the materials to the greatest extent possible.” The result was a dramatic reduction in construction waste, a mere three tons compared to the standard 15 to 18 tons for a house of this size.

As the first LEED certified home in

Kentucky, Resonance House makes a nice connection to the Commonwealth’s first LEED facility, Lincoln Hall at Berea College, renovated by EOP in 2004.
