100k and 120k House for Sale

It’s a bittersweet time for the owners of the 100K House project homes. Both homes are being put back on the market for the first time since they were built as both families move on to the next phase in their journey through life.

100k Exterior Front ImageMy wife, Courtney, and I are expecting our second child (Mr. Ryker J. Ludeman) in the month of May and desire a division of space in our next house to minimize night time crying battles as much as possible.  Our neighbors in the 120K are moving into a rental as they contemplate a move to the West Coast as they are both finishing up their Masters Degrees in Sustainability. While we’d both love to own these homes forever, we just can’t make it work at this time in our lives.

Yes, many of you commented that a larger family could not work in the 100K. You are right to a degree. We could make it work for a year or so, but there’s something about not being able to close a door to our bedroom for a bit of privacy as the boys get older that just doesn’t sit quite right with us. This house was never intended for a family of four. It has been perfect for us to date and hopefully it will be perfect for the next owner. We think it will.

The 100K will be listed next week most likely for $299K. The 120K is already listed for $319K. The 120K is the one with the orange door on the corner if you are driving by. It has more windows, is 2′ wider than the 100K, has an awesomely wide floating staircase, has a ridiculously huge backyard (by Philly standards) and a fully custom kitchen by Pappajohn Woodworking. This is why it is listed for slightly more than ours on the inside with the green door.

While you’ve come to know these homes well here, some new folks may not know everything about them. They aren’t the largest homes in Philly, but we think they may be the most heavily decorated homes in the city in some key categories. Some of their accolades are listed below:

  1. LEED Platinum Certified by the USGBC
  2. Energy Star Certified and 50% more efficient than a new code home (utilities bills less than $100 per month on average)
  3. LEED for Homes Project of the Year in 2010 awarded by the USGBC (this is a bid deal they tell us)
  4. AIA Philadelphia Award Winner (ISA tells us this is a big deal)
  5. AIA Pennsylvania Award Winner (ISA tells us this is a bigger deal)
  6. National AIA Housing Award
  7. Multiple magazine features including Metropolis Mag, Dwell Mag, GRID and GOOD Mag
  8. Newsprint mentions including the Philadelphia Inquirer, Philadelphia Business Journal and many more
  9. Numerous articles and posts on the top green building blogs and architecture sites around the world

Here are some of the better pics and videos on the project to complete this post. While we are both sad to leave the project, we are also excited to see who the new owners will be and how they will live in the homes.

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.

Damn, I wish I lived in Philly so that I could get in on one of these.

On another note, someone needs to speak to the real estate agent for the 120k listing. The best they can do under “Energy Info” is “Ceiling Fans”!? Seriously? It does not bode well for energy-efficient houses if no one is actually told that they’re buying one.

Surreal, you passed through the house, that was the first project i undertook at ISA, and I have been passed through ISA. I view 100khouse.com at least 5 times a week. and will continue to do so. So which postgreen project are you eying up for the “new” family, or is this the time to create another model to fit the evolution?

I’ve always been interested in projects like this. But I guess I am a green freak. Everything looks great. Nice job.

How did the fiberglass windows hold up in the winter? I heard that fiberglass would get brittle and crack…

I still tell people to check out this blog. I know you guys shut it down and have moved on to greener pastures, but it’d be great to see an update, on how things are going with you guys that moved on after selling your 100k houses since second part of 2011 and 2012!

Thanks!

Jim
