This tidy ranch style home was designed for a bachelor who loved horses. It didn’t work out, he is happily (almost) married now, with a beautiful girl who also loves horses! A great starter home, this could also be a retirement dream, with extremely low costs for maintenance and utilities. With just 3.5 KW of PV installed, this home will achieve Zero-Energy status in most climates in the US, especially the flipped version of the plans, with the living room and master bedroom on the East side of the house instead of the West side as pictured here.
The full length front porch provides plenty of shade on those hot summer days, and lets you enjoy the rainy days from the outside without getting wet. A very simple plan, easy to build, the original version of this home has been enjoying energy savings for over five years now. Order your plan set, and saddle up!

What's Included in Our Zero-Energy Home Packages
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.
Basic Plan Set
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.
Full Building Set
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.
