How about a Garage that comes with a Paycheck?
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. 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.

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.
