Green Living

Our Plans are designed for energy efficiency. The idea is to broaden access to green design. Houseplans.com is excited to welcome the Green Living collection of innovative plans by FreeGreen founders David Wax and Ben Uyeda. These designs range from Contemporary to Country and Farmhouse styles. All incorporate green building materials and techniques. David and Ben are experts in the field of green design and also co-founded ZeroEnergy Design, an architecture and energy consulting firm specializing in new construction and major renovations. They got their start leading Cornell University's 2005 Solar Decathlon team, which won the second place award. The competition, sponsored by the US Department of Energy, challenges universities from across the US and beyond to research, design and build an 800 square-foot off-grid solar home. David holds a Bachelor of Science in Finance and a Master of Business Administration from the Johnson School at Cornell University and is an IT consultant for the securities and capital markets. He says: "FreeGreen was able to integrate architecture and engineering software for custom home design, which meant that we could produce green design fast." Ben holds a Bachelor and Master of Architecture from Cornell University School of Architecture. He has been a visiting lecturer at Cornell, where he developed an original curriculum to teach the principles of sustainable design, and lectures on sustainable design at Northeastern University. His new venture is Home Made Modern: "smart, affordable DIY design ideas for cool people who like modern home furnishings." You can follow Ben's diverse design interests on Pinterest.

Weinmaster Home Design

Weinmaster Home Design

Raise your hand if a simple design with a small to medium square footage sounds good to you… One reason you might be enthusiastically raising your hand right now is affordability. While the cost to build a house depends on many factors, such as building location and material choices, a small design with a simple layout and footprint is usually cheaper to build than a larger, more complex structure. As you browse the Weinmaster collection of house plans below, you’ll notice right away that many of these designs present open floor plans, cool vaulted ceilings, and outdoor living space—all of which help the small (or small-ish) floor plans feel larger than they actually are. While you’ll discover many house plans in the collection below that could easily be used as primary residences, you’ll also find some A-frame house plans that are simply begging to be used as rustic vacation retreats. In addition to easily shedding snow due to their steep, signature A-shaped roof, A-frame house plans also typically sport especially lavish outdoor living areas as well as large windows through which to enjoy a beautiful view. With regard to architectural styles, the Weinmaster collection runs the gamut. You’ll find everything from traditional layouts to contemporary designs below. And, remember: almost every floor plan on Blueprints.com can be modified to meet your exact requirements. So, if you come across a house plan below that’s ALMOST perfect, except it doesn’t have the right numbers of bed or baths, or the footprint is too wide for your lot, or you wish the garage featured three bays instead of two, or something else entirely, call 1-866-445-9085 to discuss. We’re here to help you get the home you’ve always dreamed of!
