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.

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.
