  • When built to specs, this right-sized energy-smart 4 bedroom house plan saves you 40% to 50% on your energy bills.
  • In this net-zero-ready design, the AC/Heating equipment is designed within the A/C conditioned spaces through the use of chases strategically designed below the attic space. The result is 10′ volume ceilings and huge energy savings.
  • An addditional energy-saving feature is the use of raised heel trusses offering more effective attic insulation and deeper overhangs and porches to shade windows.
  • Additionally, California Corners and 2×6 framing enables the use of greater exterior wall insulation and roof real estate is optimized – particularly in the rear of the home – in case a power-producing PV array and/or solar hot water system is added.
  • Naturally lit spaces – like the gourmet kitchen with light-gathering transom windows – make this home plan feel much larger than the living area shows.
  • High above the great room is a coffered beam ceiling. A dramatic open staircase leads up to the loft and comfortable guest bedrooms.
  • The den, also topped with the coffered beam ceiling, has access through the covered front porch and it’s own full bath should a fifth bedroom be needed.
