Can you imagine your builder offering to pay your energy bills for the first year? You dont feel pretty confident that you are getting an energy-efficient home! That’s the promise that designer Dave Jenkins’ builder clients can make when they build homes from one of his house plans. Electricity bills can be as little as $600 a year. “Homeowners think the bill is probably triple that, so it’s quite a value,” says Jenkins, who designs Energy Smart Home Plans. But how? And what kinds of features should you look for in an energy-saving house plan?
Today’s family lives, works and plays in a different world than our parents and grandparents and with this difference in lifestyle comes different requirements for our homes. First floor master bedrooms are gaining popularity and are uniquely designed for the pleasure and comfort of the homeowners and most often include a suite of rooms. These master suites typically feature spacious bedrooms; sometimes, a separate sitting area, an oversized walk-in closet or double walk-ins and an exclusive spa inspired en suite bathroom.
This family-oriented contemporary plan (pictured below) puts all the bedrooms on the second floor, where they are served by a game room that would be an ideal homework space. It’s easy to imagine an infant sliding into the bedroom closest to master. A vaulted ceiling and closet big enough to hold a crib, if need be, makes the master a special and practical space.
Whether homeowners want a secure space for emergencies, an area to safeguard precious valuables, a place to wait out a storm, or simply a fun hidden room, these unique layouts offer more than meets the eye. These spaces may be tucked away in the basement, set off the garage, or even accessed through a secret cabinet. Designs in this collection are perfect for homeowners who desire an extra, secret layer of home security or a unique conversation-starting amenity.
