2,909 Sq. Ft.
The mandate for this 2,909 sf luxury home was to keep the energy costs as low as possible, without sacrificing the comfort and style the owners desired.
Passive solar design, using adequate thermal mass to store captured energy, was the key to the success of this home. We calculate this home will be a net-zero-energy home with the installation of 8.4 KW of PV panels on the south-facing roof. There is additional room on the roof for a solar hot water heater, which would be supplemented by the ground source heat pump, which is currently supplying all the heat and hot water at about 450% efficiency.
In-floor radiant heat in a concrete thermal-mass floor, even on the second floor, along with fresh air provided by HEPA filter system assure that the comfort and health benefits will be achieved.. Our owners are thrilled with this home!

We provide the most complete plan packages available on the market. We are interested in the ultimate success of your project, not just in selling a set of house plans.
Please scroll down to view the list of pages and information included in our plan packages.
The following table describes the typical number of plan copies needed to build one of our Low Energy Use Homes.
Our Basic Plan Set includes just one copy of each page, for a total of approximately fifteen pages if on 11×17 paper, about eight pages if on 24×36 paper. Our pages can be either be printed on 11×17 paper, in high resolution, either 1/8″ or 3/16″ scale, depending on the size of the house, or we can print on full 24’x36″ “D” size architectural paper. Some local Building Departments have expressed an appreciation for the smaller size of page, because of the readability, and ease of viewing multiple pages at one time. It is also much easier to get additional copies made if you should need them. Larger page sizes are required by some jurusdictions, so be sure to ask before completing your order which size is required.
Our Full Building Set includes the total number of plan pages shown on the spreadsheet below, at a slightly increased price to cover our additional costs.
Our Basic Plan Set and Full Building Set both include the Heat Loss Calculation Spreadsheet, Heating/Cooling system specifications, SIPS shop drawings, and Built Green® checklist.
