EcoNest Stock Plans
EcoNest stock plans are architect-designed heirloom-quality homes- every aspect of the design and the specification of these homes is conceived with ecology, beauty, your health and well-being in mind.
Not everyone can afford the luxury of hiring an architect to design a custom home. Yet good design will have a positive effect on the quality of your life. It will also increase the value of your home. We offer these standardized stock plans with the intention of making well designed EcoNest floor plans available and affordable to more people. Each set of drawings comes with a project manual that provides you, your builder and all sub-contractors with complete healthy home specifications that you will need to ensure that your new home will be a health enhancing environment. If one of these plans is a good marriage with your site, budget and spatial requirements then you may be a good candidate for purchase of a stock plan set of construction drawings. The stock plan sets are available to home owners and builders who have taken EcoNest training. If one of these stock plans can fit your needs with minor revisions or with a mirrored image, then purchase of modified stock plans may also be a cost-effective route for you.
For some of you, studying these plans will be a step along the way in helping you to define a future home uniquely tailored to your desires. Our architectural office is pleased to offer full-service, custom EcoNest design. We look forward to helping you create your new home.
The FolkNest series has all of the hallmark EcoNest natural home qualities of health, ecology, beauty and craftsmanship in a more modestly priced package. This series is based on a simple 18′x 36′ timber-frame.
Each is designed to take advantage of passive solar gain with a south facing “sun bump”. A centrally located masonry heater can easily heat take care of the modest heating needs of this home. If you are looking for a simple starter home or are down-sizing to enjoy retirement then this may be the plan series for you.
