New Modern & Green Homes Under Construction by Postgreen Homes in Philadelphia

"Building smaller than average homes has become a key component of the Postgreen Homes' brand," states Chad Ludeman, President of Postgreen Homes. "Building more compact homes allows us to bring high quality starter homes to a demographic that can not afford or does not want the larger new construction homes being built in Philadelphia."
On the design side, Postgreen Homes worked with ISA to tweak one of their most popular Loft style 2-story homes by raising the basement level out of the ground by about five feet. This allows more light and air to enter a typically dark underground level. ISA even fit in a walk out basement slider door in the back that enters directly into the rear yard of the home. "We actually developed the concept of these homes with some of our past home buyers," continues Chad. "The concept was solidified when we consulted for a developer in Chicago who brought to our attention that most new homes in the Windy City are constructed this way."
The homes will bost Postgreen Homes' standard environmentally sound construction package that includes super insulated walls (R40 for walls and R70 for roof), triple pane windows, advanced air sealing, high efficiency HVAC and appliances, low-flow fixtures and Low-VOC materials throughout.
The two homes are listed for $335,000 on the company's website (http://postgreenhomes.com/
