Everything you need, and just a little bit more, the RC-3 plan is our second expansion of the minimalist RC-1 Positive NRG Home™ plan. This expanded version is slightly bigger all the way around, with a larger, more livable loft, a larger utility room in the garage, and a larger living room. The extra space has allowed for even more south facing roof area, supporting as much as 10KW of photovoltaic panels and a solar hot water system. For three full years now this home has been producing enough surplus energy to power an electric car for more then 20,000 miles per year, with only 5.6KW of solar panels installed! Imagine what we could do with all 10KW! Order your Positive NRG Home™ plans today, and save for the rest of your life!
This home also earned a National Green Building Award, a Gold Energy Value Housing Award, and the US GSA’s top award for energy efficient buildings in 2012.

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 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 of these people prefer to have you send them a PDF to bid from and work from, and they will carry it with them in the portable device.
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!
