Plan Description

Farm House #1 This 1,920 square foot modernized traditional farm house design was featured in Mother Earth News, in 2010. The passive solar design and structural insulated panel (SIPs) construction are improvements which satisfy today's need for energy efficiency. The classic shape, which recalls the form of the tropical plantation house or traditional Japanese house styles, can be modified and finished on the exterior to suit most any climate and personal taste. The rooms and porches can be grouped around the central great room to create many floor plan functional layouts.
