This two-car garage/workshop offers a full living space upstairs. Some customers will use this garage as their full time work shop and living space while building their new Zero-Energy home. Having the house separated from the garage offers the best opportunity for improved indoor air quality in the home, but this plan can be added to many of our other home plans as an attached garage, in the place of the existing garage.
In its original version, constructed in early 2008, this garage provides enough south facing roof area to install more than 6 KW of Photo Voltaic panels, which will bring the owner’s home to true Zero-Energy status in most climates. Because this garage will power the apartment above AND your electric car, this plan is listed as one of our Positive NRG Homes™.
Please call or e-mail for special pricing on a “two-for” if you would like this garage plan added to any other Zero-Energy Home Plan.

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.
We include foundation plans, foundation details, floor plans of all levels, framing details, floor framing plans, and elevation views from all sides. We also provide an electrical plan, though you will want to modify the lighting to your own tastes. Most importantly, we provide a complete mechanical plan, tailored to YOUR climate zone.
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 people prefer to have you send them a PDF to bid from and work from, and they will carry it with them in their portable device. Even banks and building departments are now preferring electronic plan copies.
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!
