Lighting Layout for 100K

in Design,lighting

May from ISA sent over a rough sketch of the lighting layout for the 100K House that they came up with. Given the discussion that was sparked the other day on the ceiling fans and where to put the lighting, I thought I would get this up ASAP for the interested parties. The star of our lighting, fixture wise, will be the simple $2 ceiling fixtures you find at Home Depot and normally only put in your basement. We will obviously be using exposed CFL’s which should make a green statement as well as design statement, while maximizing the light output to the room from each bulb.

I am pretty excited about the layout ISA came up with. It really seems to solve the problem of the plain ceiling fan, economy, functionality and design. For me, it really came together when I saw both floors together. Take a look and let us know your thoughts…

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.

Hey Chad,

While I definitely appreciate the economy of the exposed CFL, my mind immediately recoils from the memory of walking in basements with exposed light bulbs. Harsh, glaring light right in the eyes. Maybe I’m missing something here, but the concept worries me. Perhaps you lights will be mounted much higher and will mitigate the “interrogation” effect….

I’ll agree w/Shawn (above) on the bare-bulb effect, although CFLs’ aren’t as bad as incandescents….A simple diffuser would mitigate the look, and could be as simple as a rectangle of translucent white acrylic or glass.

I would, however, add in the kitchen a stub-out for an overhead fan or a vent fan that could be added later. The first time the owner fries fish or anything else with a ‘high vapor content’, the addition would be appreciated….Besides,air-borne cooking oils don’t recognize kitchen boundaries, better to stop ‘em at the source.

I’ll have to dig up a couple images of this application in built projects. I have seen a couple instances and it actually looks very nice if spaced properly. We can experiment with different size bulbs to get the right amount of light so it will not be too harsh. Remember that the ceilings will be just over 9′ tall and it will be a much different effect than what we are used to in 7′ tall basements…

Also, to clarify, there will be a range hood or some form of dedicated exhaust over the cooktop. We are still researching this and it will most likely include lights which is why there is nothing shown there now.

Good examples, Chad. I’m sure that the reality WILL be better than ‘basement lighting’, but those of us in the ‘peanut gallery’ rooting for you might still cringe periodically…..;)
I’m glad a range hood is in the plans, personally. When we cook in our (rental) home, the fan in the over-range micro is totally inadequate, as it just vents back into the kitchen…totally lame…
Keep on keepin’ on….

Thanks. If we can make it work, I am looking into inline exhaust fans that can be mounted near the roof and will be whisper quiet but very powerful in the kitchen. More on that later…

What program/format are you using for your plans? Mine always look very crappy.

and by that i mean, posting them to the blog, not drawing them…

8 chad June 11, 2008 at 12:59 am

I use flickr for all of our own images and also the copyblogger theme we are using has very good built in image formatting options for posts. Check out Chris Pearson’s themes in the footer. You won’t be disappointed…

so the ceramic ceiling lights are from home depot? I could not find them on their website. Any other ideas on where to get them? I like the exposed look…
