A direct descendant of the popular RC-3 Positive NRG Home™, this vesrion has optimized the lower floor to accommodate a family, and has provided a second private bedroom and bathroom upstars. It also offers the possiblility of having a roomer or care-taker living on the upper level, while the owner lives on the lower. The roof plan is exactly the same as the RC-3 Plan, which has proven its ability to power an electric car for more than 20,000 miles per year, even in a cold climate.
The addition of a sun-porch on the south side extends the outdoor living area on the main level, though the garage has been eliminated on the version shown. We can re-attach the garage and roof deck from the RC-3 on request.
Live free, enjoy life, pollute less, how could it get any better than this?

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.
