As most of you know, this blog was originally created to document the 100k House Project in all it’s intricate details. Over the course of that project we covered design, product research, mechanical systems, zoning process and much, much more. We tried to live up to our goal of transparency as much as possible and hoped that our openness was helpful and perhaps, at times, even inspiring.

Since the end of that project this blog has grown into something less defined, but we hope, nearly as interesting. We kept up coverage of the subsequent projects which sprung from the 100k idea and added posts on our philosophy, marketing approach, objects of admiration and a whole mess of other miscellany. Over the years this has led to incredible conversation, valuable relationships, flattering PR and great opportunities for continuing our own education in this field of what we will loosely call green building.

Through this process of blogging, our actual company, Postgreen Homes, found itself slightly obscured. While not a terrible concern, we did think that the Postgreen Homes brand offered a better long-term definition of what we hoped to accomplish than the 100k House. So, when we launched our home customization tool at PostgreenHomes.com, we began to talk about bringing it more to the forefront. To that end, we moved some coverage to a new Postgreen Homes Blog (which some of you have visited). At first these were largely construction related posts specific to individual projects, but in recent days we have chosen to move everything over. That’s right . . . everything.

We have decided that the 100k Blog has run it’s course. It is simply too much to concentrate on two different outlets for our ideas while trying to juggle our actual job of developing real life buildings, and we think that, of the two, Postgreen Homes offers a more appropriate venue for our updates and musings. We understand that in terms of SEO and market exposure this seems, perhaps, a little foolish, but we hope that over time we can make the Postgreen Homes blog into what the 100k has been and even improve upon it.

So, this will be the last new post on 100khouse.com. The archives will remain intact and fully searchable but we intend to simplify the site and leave it as a monument of sorts. This is not, however, the end of the 100k Team or our writing on green building, urban planning, design and all the rest. It is also not the end of the 100k idea of modern, healthy, energy efficient homes at an affordable price. We ask that those of you who have been such an important part of the conversations on the 100k Blog stick with us as we change venues. In fact, we might go so far as to beg . . .

Please read our ongoing writing.

Please sign up for the new RSS Feed or Email Feed.

Please visit ISA, our esteemed 100k partner, for design services.

And please tell people about the change. We know this is a big move and we will need all the help we can get to keep momentum through it.

 

Before we go, we want to thank all of our readers, especially those of you who have taken the time to share our work and join the conversation on our posts. We have learned a great deal from the process of writing and maintaining this blog, and we have learned a great deal from all of you.  We hope to continue creating useful content and generating powerful conversation as we move this operation to a new home.

This is 100k signing off. We will see you over at Postgreen Homes soon.

If you enjoyed reading this post I can promise you'll love our new writing over at Postgreen Homes. Yeah, we know that's the same thing your favorite band said and their new album is nowhere near as good as their early stuff, but seriously, we are actually still getting better.

There also isn't much conversation to be had here . . . at least not with us. So come on over to the Postgreen Homes Blog and tell us what you think of our new(ish) digs and crazy ideas. We will be sure to tell you what we think of your opinion.

It’s a bittersweet time for the owners of the 100K House project homes. Both homes are being put back on the market for the first time since they were built as both families move on to the next phase in their journey through life.

100k Exterior Front ImageMy wife, Courtney, and I are expecting our second child (Mr. Ryker J. Ludeman) in the month of May and desire a division of space in our next house to minimize night time crying battles as much as possible.  Our neighbors in the 120K are moving into a rental as they contemplate a move to the West Coast as they are both finishing up their Masters Degrees in Sustainability. While we’d both love to own these homes forever, we just can’t make it work at this time in our lives.

Yes, many of you commented that a larger family could not work in the 100K. You are right to a degree. We could make it work for a year or so, but there’s something about not being able to close a door to our bedroom for a bit of privacy as the boys get older that just doesn’t sit quite right with us. This house was never intended for a family of four. It has been perfect for us to date and hopefully it will be perfect for the next owner. We think it will.

The 100K will be listed next week most likely for $299K. The 120K is already listed for $319K. The 120K is the one with the orange door on the corner if you are driving by. It has more windows, is 2′ wider than the 100K, has an awesomely wide floating staircase, has a ridiculously huge backyard (by Philly standards) and a fully custom kitchen by Pappajohn Woodworking. This is why it is listed for slightly more than ours on the inside with the green door.

While you’ve come to know these homes well here, some new folks may not know everything about them. They aren’t the largest homes in Philly, but we think they may be the most heavily decorated homes in the city in some key categories. Some of their accolades are listed below:

  1. LEED Platinum Certified by the USGBC
  2. Energy Star Certified and 50% more efficient than a new code home (utilities bills less than $100 per month on average)
  3. LEED for Homes Project of the Year in 2010 awarded by the USGBC (this is a bid deal they tell us)
  4. AIA Philadelphia Award Winner (ISA tells us this is a big deal)
  5. AIA Pennsylvania Award Winner (ISA tells us this is a bigger deal)
  6. National AIA Housing Award
  7. Multiple magazine features including Metropolis Mag, Dwell Mag, GRID and GOOD Mag
  8. Newsprint mentions including the Philadelphia Inquirer, Philadelphia Business Journal and many more
  9. Numerous articles and posts on the top green building blogs and architecture sites around the world

Here are some of the better pics and videos on the project to complete this post. While we are both sad to leave the project, we are also excited to see who the new owners will be and how they will live in the homes.

Energy Performance Oversight and a Gas Guzzler Tax for Homes?

March 4, 2011

I know I owe everyone a redesign of our Performance Sticker and some talk of the various available home energy use metrics, but that is tall order, and I have been a bit short on time. So, instead I’m going to buy a little more time with a discussion of one of the lesser points that arose [...]

Two Point Five + 1two5 + .54

February 23, 2011

We just settled on the Two Point Five Beta yesterday marking the completion of Postgreen’s eighth house. We don’t have final photography or LEED results yet, so this is just a quick celebratory post with a more comprehensive one to follow. This house is the first to feature our new 1two5 Cabinets in the kitchen. [...]

Postgreen Homes Home Performance Sticker

February 15, 2011

We have talked about simple, mileage-style window stickers for homes before, but for some reason all that talk never led to action. We never actually created one for our own homes. Well, it’s time that oversight was addressed. I put together a draft version of a window sticker based loosely on the specs from the [...]

Can We Upgrade Rental Grade?

February 10, 2011

Most of us have probably heard the term “rental grade” in reference to the finishes in an apartment or rental house. Finishes referred to in this way are usually chosen largely for low cost and/or high durability. Things like occupant health or design aesthetic tend to be secondary at best in a “rental grade” unit. This marginalization [...]

Postgreen Rentals and a New Opportunity to Invest

January 31, 2011

Our business model to date has identified itself with home ownership, but we are also big fans of rentals. Rental units are a key part of an urban housing mix providing density, incubation for future homeowners and variety for those who just don’t want to be nailed down. If ownership offers a neighborhood a stable [...]

Avant Garage Video

January 19, 2011

We have been playing around with some new ways to post video to our MLS listings and thought you might like to see where it led. As most of you know, we are on the verge of building four homes in the Fishtown neighborhood of Philadelphia under the moniker Avant Garage. These homes, which will [...]

Design – Build Cost – Energy Efficiency Infographic

January 12, 2011

I have a topic for discussion that has been brewing in my head for some time. It is illustrated below in an educatedguessographic about the New Construction Home Building in the US. Discuss. Hypothesis: If builders built homes in the “Market Gap” circle, they would sell them. If banks lended to builders that were catering [...]
