Mother Earth News is pleased to offer study plans for this beautiful, energy-efficient home. The traditional Prairie home style has its roots in the Midwest and is easily recognized by the linear horizontal design, roof overhangs and centrally located fireplaces. This energy-efficient solar home design is optimized for its climate and will perform best in colder areas of the United States.

At about 2,600 square feet, this energy-efficient home has a floor plan design which allows it to be functional while minimizing the heated space and amount of construction materials. This solar home can perform at least 50 percent better than a standard new home. If located in the Great Lakes region, the Solar Prairie Home will require only about $600 per year to heat! These impressive energy savings come from a super-insulated shell and high-performance windows, as well as optimum passive solar design and natural ventilation. Add solar thermal panels and you can cut your heating bill by a total of 75 percent!

This two-story solar energy-efficient home has three bedrooms, and one full bathroom with a wise design component that makes it function as two separate bathrooms while saving you at least $5,000 in construction costs. Each living space is situated to maximize the energy-savings; for example, the kitchen is located in the coldest area of the home, because kitchen appliances create heat, warming up the kitchen without using extra energy.

The solar home plan provides detailed information on this copyrighted energy-efficient home design, including elevation drawings, floor plan, descriptions of design features, the Mother Earth News feature article about the home and information for ordering the construction-ready blueprint.

Build your own backyard shed, using these blueprints for our toolshed greenhouse. Using recycled or salvaged materials, you can build a spacious, versatile backyard shed for a couple hundred dollars. The demo toolshed for these plans was constructed for only $250!

With its design components, this 10-foot-by-12-foot backyard shed will serve as tool storage and a work area, as well as a greenhouse to overwinter plants.

This toolshed greenhouse is a great place to store tools and gardening supplies. The workbench is handy for all projects because tools can be organized and within reach. The greenhouse portion not only allows light into the work space but makes a good location to overwinter plants and start new seedlings in spring. With all the organizational features and handsome design, the building will be an asset to any backyard.

Almost everything you'll need to build the shed can be found for free on the Internet or at little cost at a salvage yard. For the demo toolshed, the designers found mis-tinted paint at a well-known distributor at no cost. They also found that when friends and relatives learned about their backyard shed they contributed insulation materials or miscellaneous lumber that they were not using. In the end, they saved money by using materials that would have ended up in the landfill.

The toolshed greenhouse plan includes ready-to-build blueprints and step-by-step assembly instructions. This toolshed greenhouse, as well as the story about how the designers came up with the plans and materials to build it, were featured in the October/November 2009 issue of Mother Earth News.

Designed by Puget Sound Home Design.

You'll soon be on your way to building your own unique outbuilding with this innovative design plan. No expensive forms or equipment are needed with earthbag building, and the technique is faster and easier than other earth-building styles - including cob, rammed-earth tire construction and adobe (if you have to make your own bricks). Earthbag buildings are more water-resistant than those made with straw bales, making them suitable for earth-bermed and below-grade structures. If your site is susceptible to flooding, earthbag building is one of the best options - after all, sandbags have a long history of use for flood control. Just use an appropriate fill material, such as gravel, in lower courses.
