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, and help snow to slide off easier. This steeper pitch also increases the interior volume and usefulness of the loft.

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!
