The SC-2 began life as a scaled-down version of our very affordable Positive NRG 1415. By scaling back the loft area to less than 200 sf, we were able to eliminate the code-compliant stairs, and keep the construction costs to the bare minimum. A hallmark of many of our more efficient plans, the assymetrical roof provides a massive south-facing area for PV, while minimizing the north-facing area. It was originally designed with a 6′-wide covered porch all along the south side, but that was left ouf of the original version due to budget constraints. It will be included in your plan set at no additional charge, just ask, and you shall receive!
The SC-2 is one of our most cost-effective homes to build on a tight budget.

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.
