Mich. with John McLinden President & CEO of StreetScape USA a company focused on developing what John described as “… a new breed of American housing” For now he builds this breed at infill sites in the Chicago area I knew that his projects although very small had made a huge splash in the traditional neighborhood-development community with write-ups in Builder The Washington Post The Wall Street Journal and even a spot the Today Show So I was curious about what he’s doing to generate such a buzz After we sat down and order drinks John turned to me and asked “How do you live” Not “where” but “how” I didn’t like the question It threw me off and I hesitated pondering about how to answer Being a considerate person John interrupted my discomfort by explaining “That’s what we ask people when they come to look at our homes” John is no newbie He’s been in the development and construction industry for over 30 years with roles as designer construction manager general contractor and now developer “How Do You Live” represents John’s signature approach to creating a customized home for new residents in his pocket neighborhoods Unlike other homebuilders that offer two or three model homes John currently offers his buyers exactly 15504 floorplan options on a 16-lot subdivision Hard to believe He also does this without overwhelming his buyers and providing photo-quality renderings and instant price quotations during the sales meeting in real time At StreetScape’s project at Sunset Point in Illinois John offers 16 options with 5 modules yielding an astounding 15504 individual floor plans The Combinatorial Approach to Custom Homebuilding If you have bought a high-end European automobile lately you’ll recognize John’s approach Today BMW offers you the opportunity to “build your own car” instead of just choose one off the lot Although the options are huge the process comes with a series of small reasonable choices You begin by selecting from one of nine body styles Then one of three drivetrains three fuel types etc In the end the dealer shows you a rendering of your customized car along with a price If the price is too high you can go back and alter the specs until you find the sweet spot John’s process is somewhat similar As a trained architect John understands the combinatorial effect To offer choice without actually having to design a house from scratch for each new client his design team has created a series of discrete components that combine and recombine to create unique floorplans At StreetScape’s project at Sunset Point on Lake Zurich in Illinois John offers only 16 home sites and each home is composed of five discrete modules If you do the math 16 options with 5 modules yields the astounding 15504 individual floor plans to choose from And this is before you factor in the various options within each module Sound overwhelming BIM technology computes every nail and labor minute at the same time it generates photo-quality renderings Keeping Control While Offering Almost Infinite Choice Although the combinatorial effect offers what can feel like infinite choice the character of the homes remains consistent The neighborhood retains itscoherent architectural vocabulary because the supporting footprint—or chassis—of each home long and narrow allows John to control the front elevation creating an articulate streetscape Since each of the five modules has fixed exterior and interior characteristics and the interior variations within each module also have discrete components the design team at StreetScape creates each option as template and they can snap these together using Autodesk’s Revit the advanced Building Information Modeling (BIM) software that instantly illustrates all aspects of the home’s interior and exterior design with 3-D imagery The BIM technology simultaneously provides the builder a “6-D”—or six dimensional— view of the project referring to the intelligent linking of individual assemblies with all aspects of project management information including construction scheduling (4-th) detailed material lists (5-th) and labor estimates (6-th dimension) In simpler terms BIM technology computes every nail and labor minute at the same time it generates photo-quality renderings The software generates an instant cost estimate along with the renderings and floorplans allowing the StreetScape sales team (ie John) to finalize a sales presentation with plans and pricing without ever having to say “I’ll get back to you with that information” It’s the BMW experience in homebuilding In fact if John signs a client he can immediately hand over floorplans and elevations material lists and everything else needed to the construction crew If you’re inspired by John’s approach but cannot fathom implementing a similar level of technological efficiency take heart Although his projects are small John’s ambition is huge—he plans to revolutionize the construction industry through software eventually offering his combinatorial methods and information resources to all builders—including you—on a software subscription basis So stay tuned Get home building tips offers and expert advice in

happened in August at the athletics world championships where some Russian athletes won medals despite the Russian athletics body being suspended by the IAAF in the fallout from the doping scandals The IOC board is awaiting reports from two commissions it created to verify evidence detailed by World Anti-Doping Agency investigator Richard McLaren last year weeks before the Rio de Janeiro Olympics One panel led by IOC board member Denis Oswald is prosecuting around 30 individual Russian athletes who are suspected of doping violations at Sochi There tainted samples were swapped with clean urine in the WADA-accredited testing laboratory Six cross-country skiers including two medalists have already been disqualified by Oswald’s three-man panel and banned from the Olympics for life They plan appeals to the Court of Arbitration for Sport A second IOC panel is studying whether Russian state agencies including the sports ministry and FSB security service were involved in the doping program That commission is chaired by Samuel Schmid a former president of Switzerland The case for Russia to stay in the Pyeongchang Olympics got tougher this week when WADA declined to re-accredit
