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?
Southern house plans are truly an American style of home born of the original homes British immigrants built, once they settled in the Southern half of the United States, during the colonial period and thereafter, when a larger wave of European immigrants began arriving in the United States. This new wave of people crossing the Atlantic Ocean were looking for economic and religious relief but they were greatly influenced by the architecture of the first half of the 19th century. This type of architecture was heavily shaped by Georgian, Neo-classical, and Greek revival style plantation homes and mansions, as well as French Colonial and the Federal style. Many various architectural styles and design components encompass the Southern House Plan designation and they provide features favorable to regional climates in the southern portion of the United States; although, you will find these comfortable and inviting homes across the United States as well.
While some may require only minor adjustments to update exteriors, most could also benefit from an overall interior redo. Because the kitchen remains the focal point of the home, many older designs need to be completely reworked to create an open relationship between the kitchen, dining, and family areas. But proceed with caution regarding such openness: Recent surveys indicate that some sort of definition for these rooms is preferable.
