#ALP-07XM House Plan
"We want a rustic looking home that can take advantage of our 270-degree view and entertain our large family when together. Oh, we also want it energy efficient and solar." This home has a very open floor plan with lodge-log accents including a large multi-purpose loft. The media room is tucked away for sound dampening from the great room with its high-vaulted ceiling. There are a lot of outdoor patio areas to take advantage of the views. This is an excellent passive solar home design with proper fixed overhangs. The house was heated and cooled with a combination of radiant heated floors downstairs and forced air heating upstairs with controlled heat recovery ventilation. The plan includes the heating design layout and, of course, our 102-page Conservation Guide to lead you through the choices to make your home the best.
