The following newly added house plans reflect common trends in both initial construction cost savings and long term energy cost savings as clients ask us to customize homes for them in which they can comfortably spend the rest of their lives. Building down instead of up, increasing exterior wall thickness, tucking the garage into the basement and including all of the main spaces that our client’s family will use daily on one level – or right-sizing the home for their needs. They also feature right-sized porches with a craftsman style exterior, but the sky is the limit when adapting one for you. These plans all happen to be north-facing.

When you Select-A-SunPlan, Adapt-A-SunPlan or Create-A-SunPlan, did you know that you can receive much more than the word “plan” implies? The amount and type of service varies with each type of plan product and is tailored to fit your concerns.

In addition to the printed plans or electronic PDF files, you can receive assistance directly from the architect.

Study Plan – In addition to the Study Plan, receive The Sun-Inspired House (256 pages) which is full of information about general sun-inspired construction and answers to questions that others have asked us over the years. Receive email clarifications from the architect regarding information presented in the book and how it relates to the the Study Plan you are considering.

Review Set – In addition to the Study Plan and Review Set, receive answers from our architect to questions that you have about the plan. Also included are general comments on ideas that you may have about possible changes.

Construction Prints – In addition to the large drawings, receive Custom Energy Specs prepared by our architect who designed the home. The specs are based on the combination of the climate where the house will be constructed AND the particulars of each Sun Plan since each design is different. Our architect presents tailored options for the energy features based on your stated energy goals whether Energy Star, Passiv Haus standards, Net-Zero Energy or anywhere in-between. She also provides clarifications with your builder before and during construction regarding the Plans and Specs.

CAD Files – In addition to the CAD Files, associated documents and Custom Energy Specs, you can receive consulting between our architect and your design professional making the changes regarding the energy implications of the proposed changes that you have requested.

(As with any professional service and well-run business, the amount of consulting may be limited and relates to the price of the product purchased.)

We have not increased our prices in about two years (or some items it’s been much longer than that) ,but we will be doing so shortly – but not before April 15th!

Our book will be priced the same. We will continue to credit the price paid for a Construction Review Set ordered in the past (or future) when an order is placed for Blueprints or CAD Files.

Visit our Online Store.

While we have no coupon to clip, for Construction Review Set orders placed through our shopping cart, we will credit your credit card $50 after the order is placed if you agree to PDF delivery only. You may then print your own 11×17 sets of drawings. This is in effect through August 16.

6-21-09-ss-6To verify that you will accept the PDF only version (instead of the 11×17 printed version), you will need to reply to the automatic email that you receive after you place the order. If you still want the printed set, we can of course still mail them to you, but no credit will be issued.

If you are upgrading from a previous Study Plan purchase, you can receive a further discount which is the Study Plan price paid less the standard $15 upgrade fee.

And as always, the purchase price of a Construction Review Set is deductible in the future from the price of the full construction orders (Blueprints, Erasable Vellums, and CAD Files) even if you switch to another design.
