100k Mid-Construction Tour on December 13th

in event,Press and News

We finally have walls, a roof, temporary stairs and an overwhelming desire to show off what we’ve done. So, we are inviting everyone to come out to the site on Saturday, December 13th from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. to see the house, meet the team and ask any questions that come to mind. We’ll have some light food and warm drinks to protect you against the cold, and we’ll walk you through the stages of construction we have completed to date.

100k House SIPs

When: Saturday, December 13th
What Time: 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.
Where: 2100 E. Susquehanna Ave (map)

Now, we know that we have scheduled an event or two that never materialized. We all remember the ill-fated SIPs week and its failure to actually happen amidst weeks of rain. This time, however, we promise that nothing short of an apocalyptic hurricane or devastating locust plague will derail our plans.

If you’re coming out, give us a heads up in the comments. Hope to see you there.

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.

Oo – I’ll definitely try to come, but I wonder if its worth it to get a newsletter out to the Delaware Valley Modernists? What do you think?

I attended the EnergyStar Summit in Denver. THE guru, Joe Lsitburek, was there, ranting.

SIPS were nearly absent. These guys are rather production oriented, and even Joe said, “SIPs are too expensive for production builders.”

But then, at lunch, I spoke with a custom builder who said, “My framers are so awesome, I just can’t risk slowing them down. Too many changes are needed on a $2M home, and SIPs complicate those. The roof planes are definitely too complicated. Now, I might consider SIPs if I were building more than one of something.”

So that only leaves a rather small sweet spot in the middle for SIPs. Hmmm. If consumers pick up on these perceptions, SIPs could become a liability because of perceived higher cost.

I’ll try to make it. Hope it happens this time.

Kevin – Good points. We are honestly undecided on SIPs as a long term envelope strategy. We can discuss more if you stop by on Saturday…

5 biblicone December 3, 2008 at 4:41 pm

See you there. Thanks for the ‘everyone’ invite.

Greg – I’m not sure. Do the modernist folks like to see construction process stuff or are they more interested in finished product? Obviously we want to get everyone we can to come out to this event, but we also don’t want to disappoint. I personally think it is going to be a very cool time to see the houses and I think we should invite anyone who might feel the same way.

Brian – We deserve that, but I assure you it will happen this time. Come on out and bring a friend.

Nic, I think more people like to walk through finished houses no doubt, but I think it would be self-selecting – people interested in construction would come, those not would pass.

A mailing is under 10$ using the email campaign service, there are about 50 people on the list so its way less than a postage stamp to reach out to each of them. I think its worth doing it. I can use the text from your post here, or if you want to write something up here is the format from the last mailing:

8 Nic Darling December 4, 2008 at 12:10 pm

Sounds worth it Greg. If you can just use the text from this post that would be great.

Anyone else who has a list or a group of people that might be interested, please let them know.

email went out a little after 1pm. Newsletter is here:

I’ll come if I can manage to persuade the man with the wheels-

11 Michael Klusek December 9, 2008 at 2:30 pm

Can’t make it. Could you film a walk thru?

12 Erik Nelson December 9, 2008 at 4:11 pm

It looks great and I would love to stop by and learn more, but I’m over the salty pond until June. Next time I’m in Philly, I definitely want to check the house out, no matter what state of completion it’s in. It’ll probably be completely finished by then…even better.

14 Dan Mc December 11, 2008 at 6:03 pm

15 Dane December 11, 2008 at 8:25 pm

16 goran December 11, 2008 at 10:30 pm

Looking forward to seeing it. Add two from NJ.

17 Bill Vojtech December 23, 2008 at 2:32 pm

I’ve been looking in on the forums. I’m considering SIP construction, and was surprised to hear that some people find them noisy when they’re built near a road or other noise source.

You built in an urban setting. Did you need to do anything to dampen the street noise? What kind of SIPs did you use?
