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. The Sepviva Line, designed with matte laminates, aluminum edge banding and clean, simple lines was created for this house in Matte White and Terril. It features the Frigidaire slide in hybrid induction range and the Whirlpool/Bosch combo of fridge and dishwasher. The dishwasher blends in with a custom door panel. The final piece is a 2cm Ceaserstone countertop. We snapped some quick scouting pictures of this kitchen the other day with young Teague in the role of professional model. We felt his former work as an unhappy hipster qualified him for the work. Here’s a sample. More will follow when we take the actual professional shots.
In addition to the 1two5 kitchen the Two Point Five is home to another first. It is the first time we have beat the Passive House air sealing requirement of .6 ACH (Air Changes per Hour) at 50 Pa. Our final blower door came in at .54 ACH as you might have guessed from the cryptic title of this post. We will have more discussion of that in the coming week including how we got there and how it effects our final HERS rating.
Well, it’s a somewhat brief and unsatisfying post, but I promise more very soon. For now, feel free to put any appropriate unhappy hipster captions for the above picture in the comments. Check out the real site for inspiration.
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.
