3 Bed Net Zero House Plan with Covered Front Porch
About this Plan
The charming 3-bedroom house plan's front facade offers a covered front porch that is lined with classic columns and topped with a standing-seam metal roof. A pair of gables dominate the roof line and are accented with white brackets on vertical siding. Accent vents top each pediment. The third car bay is stepped back from the front, reducing the street impact of the spacious 3-car garage.
The foyer’s 10-foot ceiling gives way to pocket doors that open to the kitchen. A convenient coat closet is on the right, while shifting your view to the wide open great room. A stunning vaulted ceiling with faux beams cover the open living room and dining room space. The wall of glass sliders opens completely to the covered lanai. This makes for easy outdoor entertaining with the outdoor kitchen behind the master.
The gourmet kitchen offers a generous peninsula for casual dining, plenty of room for the pantry and easy access to the garage. Tucked behind a pocket door is the utility room with a sink and plenty of counter top space.
The master suite is secluded with a private entrance off the living room. Its double french doors open to the lanai. Just past a pair of walk-in-closets is the master bath with all the amenities.
On the other side of the home are two guest bedrooms each with its own full bath and walk-in closets. The rear guest bedroom has a bath that doubles as a pool bath with access to the covered lanai.
Designed into this net-zero-ready house plan are exclusive energy-saving techniques that, when built to specs, can result in a 50% savings when compared to other new homes, 60-70% when compared to older homes.
