About this Plan
See What's Included in this Plan...
- Three dormers add charm to this simple home plan with its uncomplicated foundation shape.
- The kitchen is open to the breakfast nook on one side and the great room with fireplace on the other.
- Two bedrooms on the upper level each have their own bathroom.
- A workshop area in the garage adds functionality.
- The lower level has a big rec room and another bedroom and bath.
- This was designed for a north orientation and the insulated garage acts as a thermal barrier to the home's finished spaces, and triple-glazed insulated wood windows and doors are used in major glass areas facing south with no windows in north walls.
- 2x6 walls with multiple insulating materials create an approximate value of R34 with R70 in the attic
- The basement has insulated walls inside and out and a natural cooling system created by a 40' long buried pipe that provides a constant 55-degree earth temperature.
