Our team was contacted a few weeks ago by a Philadelphia reader interested in having us design and build a similar home as the 100K House in the neighborhood. We are having our first meeting with them tonight.
This has raised a new question for our team here. “Can we as a team offer affordable design services to accompany the affordable construction costs of the 100K House?”
Only 5% of new homes built use a professional architect for the design. Not sure where this stat comes from but I’ve heard it many times from people I respect. Most of those using architects are wealthy and able to afford both expensive design as well as a costly home. With 100K we have created an affordable home that also happens to rank high in quality and energy efficiency. Can we do the same for the design services and have a go at that 5% figure by making good design more accessible to a wider audience?
I guess we’ll find out soon. What are 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.
