Why a Sun Plans Home?
  • Sunny, open, attractive designs
  • Warm in winter, cool in summer
  • Resilient & reliable natural heating & cooling
  • Low energy use & low energy bills

A Sun Plan uses the natural light and heat of the sun to warm and brighten homes. It connects you to nature with carefully placed windows on all sides of the home. It's sun-inspired and nature-inspired!

A Sun Plan can reduce energy bills by at least half compared to conventional house plans. It can achieve zero net energy use when coupled with on-site renewable energy generation...the ultimate in independence!
A Sun Plan can be created from your ideas, adapted with Computer Aided Design (CAD), or built from Construction Prints (blueprints) available from Sun Plans. The architectural designs are easy to follow.
