HERS Rating for Brick Modern

Part of the process of well-designed and constructed homes is validating through a third-party.  We are experts in the design and detailing of homes but testing to ensure it is built well is important.  The Brick Modern House is a completely electric home when it comes to heating and cooling, including water heating.

Post-Construction testing gives the Brick Modern House a Home Energy Rating System (HERS) Index of 77 excluding the solar panels.  When accounting for the solar panels, the HERS Rating adjusts to 17!

The third-party energy rater asks us for input so they’re able to form a design baseline and then post-construction they perform a draft test to check for air leaks but also to pressurize the house and determine how tight (or not) the house is.  Contrary to what one might think, your house doesn’t need to breathe.  You, however, do need to breathe.

The approach to get fresh air into a home should be through a designed and measured location, not through random leaks in the exterior of your home.  If you’re interested in learning more about this, we’ll have more information to share under our ‘Topics’ tab.  For the Brick Modern House, we’ll track the energy usage to provide feedback to our energy modeling that we perform through the design process.

Powder Room Custom-Tiled Vanity

Check-out this powder room custom-tiled vanity at Brick Modern House.

We’ve integrated a lot of personal touches into this project that we look forward to sharing.  One such case is the custom-tiled vanity.

The design of the tiled sink meant really digging down into the details to ensure the tiled vanity cabinet was functional, including the drawer.

C & P got the opportunity to spend the day shooting Back40House on this beautiful fall day in Pendleton!

Chris was definitely in his element, with many prime opportunities to “wave his arms around“; sometimes while in conversation, and other times while motioning for Paul to reposition props.

Besides helping stage the shots, Paul enthusiastically interacted with people, spaces and dogs.  It was a good day all-around!

We’ve Moved to G BLOC!

We have moved our studio to G BLOC in Broad Ripple North Village right next to the Monon Trail!

It’s been a long COVID-influenced, socially-distanced 12 months, and we are very much looking forward to the future.  In fact, we are all back together in one space again!

Although we are still keeping socially distanced (for the most-part), it’s great to be able to communicate and collaborate with team members in-person again.

If you are in the area, please stop by G BLOC for a visit!
