Designer Notes: To respond to use request for home plans suitable for scenic rural lots, we have created The Modern Lake House. This house plans would work well as a getaway second home or a peaceful primary residence on any site that has a view to be captured. This plan is a great mix of flexibility, luxury, and efficiency. This home also incorporates many of the popular modern green features such as an open floor plan, proper passive solar design, and a roof deck with a garden\green roof.
Green Elements: The roof design of this plan allows for the collection of rainwater to be used for a roof deck garden. The flat roof features a gentle tapering that brings water to a single downspout. A rain water barrel on the roof deck level captures rainwater for usage in the garden. The roof of the 2nd floor suite would be a great place for solar panels and is large enough to accommodate a solar array that could make this house a zero energy house.
Passive design was carefully considered and the construction drawings include details for providing passive shading devices that will keep the summer sun out while letting in the winter sun.
