ABSTRACT:

The +Plus House is a Affordable Healthy, Green home that can be built on any Chicago Lot. Come see this new approach to homes we created see how we did it creatively on a 92′ x 25 lot! This +Plus House is located in East Pilsen’s Chicago emerging Art District where Pilsen’s culture meshes with the new energy of development. As Pilsen grows into the next Chicago destination, the +Plus House is there to add to Pilsen’s unique presence and help lead Pilsen to its future as a greener community.

Come and see a simple expression of modern finishes in our home and learn about the air refresh system, the formaldehyde free products and low chemical materials we chose and why. Also, come talk to the builder to see the photos of how we engineered our envelope to wrap our home in the newest insulation techniques and see a display of our advanced energy star framing techniques with thermal bridging in mind. If you come you will also enjoy learning and experiencing a new neighborhood at a crossroads from the long time top agent of Pilsen real estate and the Lower west side. By simply looking across the street you will see a large development site where a proposal of over 350 units is planned.  Learn about the dozens of units of development that are about to impact the market here and learn why Pilsen is still so affordable.

If you want to know the what Building Green on a budget and small lot looks like come see our +Plus House on Newberry.
