I think this is the most exciting of our Cottage-Series of plans. Using the same footprint as C-8, C-9, and C-11, this home offers a separate powder room on the main floor, and a third or even fourth bedroom upstairs.
While most of these Cottages have been designed with the elderly in mind, this one would also accommodate a large family. Everything you need to live is still on the main floor, and is all handicapped accessible, but with this plan, there is room for a live-in care-taker, and still room for overnight guests.
The best part of this plan is the energy efficiency. Even though the floor plan is about 300 s/f bigger than the other Cottages in the series, the exterior surface area stayed about the same, resulting in one of the lowest heat-loss per s/f ratios I have ever seen. As with all our plans, there is room for plenty of PV panels on the south-facing roof. Variations of this home have been built in at least four different states, and even in the arctic.
Be sure to check out the other plans in our Cottage Series (C-8, C-9, C-10, and C-11) for other energy efficient variations.
