This 1100 s/f three bedroom home was designed by request to serve the low income housing needs of a moderately sized family. An up-dated version of the typical 1970s box, this extraordinarily economical home is extremely energy efficient, and can have a sizeable loft area above the bedroom and bath area, depending on the roof pitch chosen. Though this loft area does not meet code as a sleeping area, it could be used for a child’s play area, for storage, or as a quiet retreat for adults to just go and read a book. This plan can be built either with or without an attached garage. A version of this plan has been developed for construction in the Arctic. For Northern latitudes, a steeper roof pitch has been added, to provide a better angle for solar panels. This steeper pitch also increases the interior volume and usefulness of the loft.

What's Included in Our Zero-Energy Home Packages

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.
