Feb. 12, 2013 - PRLog -- The innovative development company, Postgreen Homes, that brought Philly the 100K House which won the LEED for Homes Project of the Year in 2010 are bringing a new home model to the Philadelphia Market - The Snapback Project.

Like the 100K House, this project is designed by award winning contemporary architecture firm - Interface Studio Architects ( The homes defining characteristic is their smaller than average new construction size. In other words, these rowhomes are only two stories and 2 bedrooms instead of the Philly status quo of 3 stories and 3-4 bedrooms for new construction homes.

"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." The price point of these two homes fits well for a couple or family in Philadelphia with an income around the Area Median Income for the city.

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 ( with a host of customization options still available. This project focuses a lot of new upgrade options on the unique basement level that include a media room, a wet bar or full apartment kitchen and private room in the back perfect for a room mate, guest quarters or home office.
