Over the last few years we have had a number of people ask us for a 2,000 square foot rambler, using full universal design. This 2,100 sq. ft. plan has all that, and more, offering all the energy efficiency we know how to bring in to a home.
This Positive NRG Home™ also has enough south-facing roof area to support over 18KW of energy-producing solar panels, in addition to a solar hot water heater. This would provide enough energy not only to power the house, but to power TWO commuter cars, for a total of 26,000 miles per year! Imagine living your life completely fossil-fuel-free, with no energy bills, EVER, for your car or your house, for the rest of your life! You would save over half a million dollars just over the next thirty years, based on the average energy use for a similar sized home and cars driving the same mileage, when the historical rate of inflation is applied to the cost of energy.
There is a lot of flexibility designed into this home, the den and the media room could both double as extra bedrooms. Several versions of this great home have been developed ranging in size from about 1,900 sf to over 2,200 sf.

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.
