624 sq.ft. 1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom

Home Floor Plan 624 sq.ft. 1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom Low Income Home

A south side solarium “thermal buffer zone” is recommended for improved thermal performance. (See Chapter Eleven), but it is not required. A simple sunroom can be constructed inexpensively with single pane tempered patio door glass, and a dirt floor for planting a small year-round garden for fresh tropical fruit, vegetables, and flowers. If a solarium is added to the floor plan, all of the rooms on the south wall can have sliding glass doors(or French doors) into the solarium to improve the daylight and sweeping views to the south. On sunny winter days, the doors can be opened to allow warm air from the sunroom to flow through the interior of the home. If you plan on adding a solarium or a garage later (when you can afford it), the future additions should be designed into your original plans

864 sq.ft. 2 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom

Same 26’ x 8’ Core Module (Options Are Available) North Utility Room Door Access To Optional Garage or Carport On The North Side North / South Dimension Can Be increased in Two Foot Increments For More Space

Home Floor Plan 864 sq.ft. 2 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom

This two-bedroom one-bath floor plan uses essentially the same core module as the one bedroom one bath floor plan, with only minor modifications. The difference between the two is the empty space that is site built around the core module. This empty space has a lower actual cost per square foot than the core module square footage (due to plumbing, appliances, etc.). The exterior dimensions of all these ZED homes can be increased in two-foot increments with minimal additional square footage cost. Overall external dimensions should be an even number of feet. Adding an additional bathroom obviously has a higher cost per square foot.
