One of the first steps in planning a LEED home is to adjust the certification thresholds based on the material and energy impacts. All else being equal, a large home consumes more materials and energy than a small home over its lifecycle.

One of the first steps in planning a LEED Cincinnati home is to adjust the certification thresholds based on the material and energy impacts. All else being equal, a large home consumes more materials and energy than a small home over its lifecycle. LEED compensates for these impacts by adjusting the thresholds for each award level. Thresholds for smaller-than-average homes are lowered, and thresholds for larger-than-average homes are raised. A home’s threshold for LEED Gold may be 72 points. A 4,500-sq.-ft. home with five bedrooms would be about 85 points.

Chip and DeDe Dennig are going back to the neighborhood his ancestors immigrated to on Bremen Street, in the heart of Cincinnati’s original German neighborhood.

After a complete renovation of 1507 Republic St. (formerly 125 Bremen St.), Chip and DeDe Dennig are putting the finishing touches on their new, old home. The project was two years in the making and the owners are hoping to achieve Gold LEED certification. 



This certification involves the adoption of stringent green practices to produce a home that is energy efficient and uses resources in an environmentally responsible way, from highly efficient HVAC systems to plumbing fixtures that reduce water flow. For example, all shower fixtures in the home are 1.75 gpm. Rainwater will be captured from a downspout and used for drip irrigation to care for the native, drought-tolerant plantings in the permeable portion of the courtyard. Insulation and efficient doors and windows will reduce energy consumption considerably. Original flooring was reused in three of the home’s living spaces.
