This response from our last newsletter got our attention:

“You all are missing the point.  The people who need and want passive solar want 900 to 1500 square feet!  Smaller is better.”

While all insight is valuable (keep the comments coming), and as our book points out on page 5:

“Homeowners minimize their impact on the earth by: Building Small” (that’s our number one item on the list!), we realized that we could do a better job of explaing the origination of the house designs on our web site.  Did you know that the house plans on the website began as a custom design for a real family? While do have plans as small as 1176 s.f. (not counting daylight basements), and two story homes with footprints as small as 945 s.f., the truth is that most of our clients ask for larger homes. While do try to right-size the home to their requirements and suggests ways to save on square footage, often it is simply not desired by the home owner who is our client. If you would like a small home, we would absolutely LOVE to work with you through our Create-A-SunPlan services!

Don’t have the time or patience for a custom design? Through Adapt-A-SunPlans we can adapt  a design for you and your climate, or even with Select-A-SunPlan, the Custom Energy Specs that are part of our services make any recommended changes for your climate.
