Sun-Inspired Passive Solar House Plans Forest View 2 features abundance of arches inside and out just like the older, original Forest View, but this client wanted the master bedroom on the cool northeast side of the house. They also desired the sunroom to be on the southeast corner. The shallow porch on the south creates a nice place for sitting without blocking winter sun and the arched columns make the south view even more attractive than the front of the house! The dominant feature of the house is still the central great room with high ceilings surrounded by arches. When you enter this room from the foyer or family entry side, your eyes are immediately drawn to the south French doors with large arched windows above. The extra high ceilings in the foyer, great room, and dining create grandeur, but the floor plan is still comfortable and practical.
