Plan Description

The Desert Shelters was designed with hot dry climates in mind. A slab on grade foundation and stucco siding is standard with this shelter design package. Additional siding options are available for this design and include fiber cement panels or corten steel siding. Exterior walls are constructed from 2x6 studs with spray foam cavity insulation, providing superior thermal resistance to the elements. The roof construction consists of exposed beam and decking with six inches of rigid foam board insulation and a white rubber roofing finish. Rubber roofing was chosen for its durability and affordability. Because of the low slope of the roof, the roofing finish will not be visible from the ground and is ideal for mounting solar panels. plans also include a solar PV system design, rainwater harvesting system design and a full material list.

This.house plan also includes a solar PV system design, rainwater harvesting system design and a full material list.
