Welcome to Indy Habitat Builds LEED


USGBC Indiana and Habitat for Humanity of Greater Indianapolis are collaborating on a unique project. Building the FIRST Habitat for Humanity LEED certified home in Indiana!

In order to keep all of our members and supporters up to date we created this blog as a central resource for all things Habitat Builds LEED related. This blog will become the hub for information, contacts, resources, pictures and everything else needed to build our LEED home.

Check back often to find out what's happening, and how you can get involved. Or you can always find more information on our partnering websites.
