Affordable, Net Zero Modular – Chasing The Golden Trifecta, Scraping Knees Along the Way

Kaplan Thompson Architects’ first net zero project, BrightBuilt Barn, evolved into BrightBuilt Home, a line of modular Net Zero homes in 2012. The goal was to make a series of high-performance houses available to a wider market interested in affordability, accessibility, design and construction speed. We will discuss the improvements we have made in our details as we have built more homes, share critical demographics insights, speed bumps in the process, and tradeoffs required to produce high-performance homes with predictable results despite a myriad of new variables.
