This beautiful home was elevated 30″ above grade to provide a more expansive view of the adjacent waterway. While it was designed as a two bedroom with an office, it could easily be a three-bedroom home. If Universal Design is desired to provide handicapped access to the mail floor, the slab could be poured at ground level, and the exterior stairs eliminated. There is a large bonus room over the garage, accessed by a pull-down stairway.
This home won Project of the Year from the local Home Builders Association, and scored a 49 on the HERS scale, without PV installed! The R-1 plan has become one of our more popular plans, and has been adapted to hot dry climates as well as very cold climates.

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.
We include foundation plans, foundation details, floor plans of all levels, framing details, floor framing plans, and elevation views from all sides. We also provide an electrical plan, though you will want to modify the lighting to your own tastes. Most importantly, we provide a complete mechanical plan, tailored to YOUR climate zone.
We used to ship either a “Basic Set” of plans, with just one copy of each page, or a “full Set”, which ideally would include enough plan pagers for all of your key suppliers and subcontractors. Now most people prefer to have you send them a PDF to bid from and work from, and they will carry it with them in their portable device. Even banks and building departments are now preferring electronic plan copies.
There are now FedEx Office, Office Max, and similar locations all over the country where you can have full size plans printed at a far lower cost than what we can provide, especially when the cost and time required to ship them across the country is considered. When you need an extra copy of a certain page, you can simply e-mail the pdf page you need to the local outlet, and they will have it all printed and ready for pick-up by the time you arrive. Isn’t technology wonderful!
