Plan Description



 This design is tailored to meet the specific needs of a vacation house while providing high performance design features. Inspired by a custom client that wanted a lake house that could serve as a cozy winter retreat for her husband and two children but easily accommodate a large number of extended family members and friends on summer vacations. The simple form, shed roof, oversized glass doors, and vaulted ceiling contribute to a casual modern style with lots of light and air.
 
 An open great room spills out onto a large oversized deck through two large sliding glass doors. A screened porch is a great place to escape mosquitoes or rain but still enjoy some fresh air. A long mudroom corridor is a great place to shed hiking boots and other outdoor gear. A bunk room and play room combination provides room for four bunk beds and play space for children.
 
 The common room has two sliding glass doors out onto the patio deck. This is a sunny communal space with polished concrete floors provides a casual and durable setting for large gatherings. A center cabinet wall features a fireplace, hidden TV and media cabinets as well as a bar.
 
 A large kitchen island features a raised bar counter side that serves as an excellent place to grab breakfast while concealing dirty dishes in the sink. A combination of upper cabinets and open shelves offer easy access to dishes or utensils while providing opportunities to hide unsightly clutter.
 
 This high performance house plan offers multiple design options for the building’s thermal envelope that allow the builder to select the one that works best for your budget and climate. Passive solar design techniques such as Sothern exposure for large areas of glazing, window shading devices were key considerations for this project.

What's Included In This Plan Set


House plans created for Green Living give our customers design options that meet or exceed existing energy standards, while giving options in the realm of cost, style, and environmental commitment. As an example, all Green Living homes are designed to perform 30% to 50% better than prescriptive building code energy performance. The level of home performance depends on the products that you choose.

Each Green Living house plan includes:

  • LEED for Homes Rating System: Guidelines to meet LEED for Homes certification levels of: Certified, Silver, Gold, and Platinum. LEED for Homes is a national, voluntary certification system, developed by national experts and experienced builders, that promotes the design and construction of high-performance green homes and encourages the adoption of sustainable practices by the homebuilding industry. The LEED for Homes Rating System is part of the suite of nationally recognized LEED Green Building Rating Systems administered by USGBC. Like all LEED Rating Systems, it is the market's leadership system, targeting the top 25% of home building practices in terms of environmental responsibility. LEED provides industry resources and tools on how to "green" any new home. With LEED, homebuilders can differentiate their structures as meeting the highest performance measures, and homebuyers can readily identify high quality green homes. LEED provides national consistency in defining the features of a green home, enables builders anywhere in the country to obtain a green rating on their homes, and assures homebuyers of the quality of their purchases, all based on a recognized national brand. Learn more about the LEED® Rating System here.
  • Window shading details: External window shading devices are an effective method for reducing heat gains through windows during Summer. In fact, external shading devices can reduce heat gains by up to 80% if sized and built properly. With this in mind, the founders of Green Living, formerly Free Green, created this page to assist home builders in constructing effective window shading devices. The information we provide includes a zoning map of the United States, zoning charts for proper sizing of shading devices and a variety of shading device styles and materials to suite different tastes and different home designs.
  • General Notes: Typically one sheet of general notes pertinent to the construction of the home
  • Exterior Elevations: A blueprint picture of all four sides showing exterior materials and measurements.
  • Foundation Plan: Drawn to 1/4" scale, this page shows all necessary notations and dimensions including support columns, walls and excavated and unexcavated areas. 
  • Floor Plan(s): Detailed plans, drawn to 1/4" scale for each level showing room dimensions, wall partitions, windows, etc. as well as the location of electrical outlets and switches.
  • Interior Elevations: Detailed drawings of kitchen cabinet elevations and other elements as required.
  • Cross Section: A vertical cutaway view of the house from roof to foundation showing details of framing, construction, flooring and roofing.
  • Wall sections and other construction details: Detailed drawings showing wall connections, from foundation to the roof. wall connections to foundation, window installation, siding installation, stair details, and more.
  • Framing Plans: Drawn to 1/4" scale. The framing layout is intended to be a suggested layout only. Design loads & weather conditions vary by region. As a result the size, spacing & layout of all structural elements in this home design must be approved by a structural engineer and code official based on your specific site location prior to construction.
  • Electrical Plan with electrical symbols legend: In general, each house plan set includes an electrical plan which will show the locations of lights, receptacles, switches, etc. Note: Most Green Living plans have an electrical plan, however some do not. Please contact us to verify.
