This is a wonderful passive-solar plan if you have the living areas facing the winter sun. Place it on either an insulated concrete slab, or a well-insulated floor covered with tile. My favourite plan is very similar to this, except on mine there is an al-fresco area where this Br 1 is.  Slide the bathroom to the left, remove the en-suite and there's enough room for a good-sized main bedroom.

Front porch, rear porch, side porch, you get the idea we think porches are important.  Outdoor space is often underutilized. The Harmony Creek home allows you to sit on the sunny side and feel the warm, radiant heat from the sun, or relax in the cool breezes on the shady side.  You have lots of options with this model.  Add a sun room with patio roof and you create space for many occasions.  Face the front south, glass in the porch, and you will turn this simple country design into a passive…
