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 Construction Prints or CAD Files are purchased, if they are over a year old, often minor updates are performed to meet the Sun Plans current in-house checklist.  Occasionally, we make even more substantial updates especially if the design is more than five years old. We believe that we are the only house plan company that performs these services. We also try to keep the website up-to-date with the newest photos and comments from our clients, so that you may see what they have to say about their own sun-inspired homes!

Sun Plans continuously strives to provide our clients the most up-to-date house plans and service – in addition to the energy-efficiency and passive solar design.

Thank you to Mark and Valerie, and Ruth and Doug for sending us the photos.
