Energy Efficient Floor Plans

Green building is currently the hottest trend in the building industry, and it is sure to stick around as non-renewable energy resources are depleted and we become more aware of our environment. Choose a house plan that will be efficient to build, live in, and maintain, and you'll find yourself marveling at your new home's comfort AND saving money on utility bills.

The plans in this collection have been chosen for their modest size (to minimize material and energy use), efficiency of design, natural lighting opportunities, and more. Some of the homes have been specifically designed to earn certification such as LEED for Homes, a robust program addressing every aspect of a building's envelope, systems and finishes. Whether or not you choose to seek certification, programs such as LEED provide excellent guidelines for building a sustainable home. Requirements vary according to climate zone and even your home's orientation on the lot, so if you are serious about building a green home, consult a building science engineer or green professional for advice on how to build the most eco-friendly home on your lot.
