About this Plan

  • Designed for easy, modern living based on the lifestyle of small families or empty nesters, the accent is on the master suite along with a generous cook's kitchen and a nice size laundry area for convenience.
  • This single-story plan has a slab floor for radiant heat in winter that also serves as a passive cooling thermal mass in summer.
  • Perimeter overhangs keep the living space in shade while metal roofing reflects radiation from the high-angle summer sun.
  • The efficient passive design needs only a small wall-mounted boiler to charge the radiant slab, providing an elegant dust-free heating system that warms to the bone with minimum expense.
  • Nine-foot high ceilings lend an interior grandeur to this simple, easy to build plan.
  • The prefabricated truss roof system makes the sophisticated hip design easy to frame.
  • The perimeter soffit also allows windows to remain dry and open for ventilation during rainy weather and shades them from direct summer radiation to keep things cool.
  • This plan is a highly efficient home - easy and inexpensive to build, comfortable to live in, and a big cost-saver going forward.
