Phoenix Building Solution completes system-built, energy-efficient house in Oakley

Phoenix Building Solutions has completed a new, system-built house at 3241 Berwyn Place in Oakley.

The house, which was pre-built in the Vineyard style, shipped from the company's Brookville, Ohio factory, and assembled by Custom Modern Homes LLC, is super-insulated to an R-42 rating at the ceiling and R-22 at the walls.

A similar house built by Phoenix Building Solutions was rated with a HERS index of 64 and received a 5-star+ rating by Energy Star.

Among the other features:

  • A full basement
  • A detached garage
  • A pre-studded R-5 insulated foundation from Superior Walls
  • Attached front porch and rear deck
  • Transom windows
  • Nine-foot ceilings
  • An open floor plan
  • Bamboo flooring
  • Heil high-efficiency HVAC
  • Quality Cabinets
  • Dal-Tile ceramic tile floors in the kitchen
  • Whirlpool appliances
  • Moen plumbing fixtures
  • Formica countertops
  • A rain barrel connected to the garage downspouts
Priced at $254,900, the house offers new construction in a desirable neighborhood for a similar cost to less energy-efficient housing choices.

The site became available in January after demolition of the property's previous house, which burned down in August 2007.
