My new house plans book covers my most popular house designs. These houses are low-cost, DIY, sustainable house designs, many of which can be built for less than $10,000 if you use locally sourced materials such as earthbags, straw bales and recycled wood.

Each house plan includes a full-page 3D cutaway drawing (similar to the one above) that shows the home’s interior and how it is built. This is one of the best features of the book, because it takes two dimensional drawings and turns them into colorful, realistic images that are much easier to visualize. If you order one of these plans from Dream Green Homes.com the full-sized cutaway drawing is included at no extra charge.

  1. Owen: We love your website, it is full of great ideas. In your book, do you mention or emphasize roof structure hold down mechanisms? This is one of the most critical items.



    • We emphasize bond beams to help tie the walls together and join the roof. We don’t emphasize roof ties/hurricane ties so much since they’re standard construction. Everybody knows to use hurricane anchors/rafter ties like Simpson anchors. We do emphasize using extra strong hurricane ties in hurricane and tornado regions, but that’s not in the book.
