It’s official. We have an article in the January issue of Metropolis magazine entitled, “From the Betsy Ross House to Your House – Philadelphia, a city of tiny row house, might be just the place to build a new version of the American dream:green and affordable.” The article is written by Karrie Jacobs and is part of her monthly column, “America,” about how ideas and strategies in architecture and design play out on the landscape.
A couple months ago the development team was interviewed by Karrie Jacobs, a critic and journalist from NYC that writes a regular column for Metropolis magazine and also acts as an editor for the publication. I think Karrie was attracted to our project because of our title alone at first. She is the author of “The Perfect $100,000 House: A trip across America and back in pursuit of a place to call home.” The book is a very interesting read and is as much about her personal journey as it is the houses she finds and people she meets along the way. I read through it prior to our interview and it has certainly contributed to the evolving design of our plans and has helped to solidify our notion that there is a market for this type of home and the market is not only first time home buyers or recent college grads.
The article shows the 100k house project in a positive light. Rather than trying to interpret the article myself I am trying to get permission to post it to the blog in it’s entirety. If not, it should be in newstands soon and regular subscribers are already getting their copies in the mail now.
Special thanks to Greg La Vardera for referring our site to Karrie!
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.
