Overnight, Postgreen announced its first development project in the Kensington neighborhood of Philadelphia. It will be a small project with two small, two-bedroom homes that will be modern, green, and affordable, a powerful trifecta of aspirations. Generally speaking, the homes will be designed by Interface Studio Architects and will be loftstyle with 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, and enough green amenities to qualify for about a LEED Silver certification.
Interestingly, Postgreen is also conducting a case study to try to build one of the homes for only $100K. The purpose would be to prove that modern, green homes can be affordably built today. They’ve started a blog, the 100k House, to document the entire process from planning to construction to sale. If you have experience in this endeavor, and I’m sure you do or you wouldn’t be reading Jetson Green, Postgreen is looking for feedback for every step of the process, which you can do by visiting the 100k House blog.
