Are there residential schedules somewhere the way there are office ones? Or does anybody know of a good tutorial of how to manually add these?

I can't tell from your post if you want residential schedules (e.g., for lighting, appliances, etc.) or load shapes. One good source for residential schedules is the Building America House Simulation Protocols. If instead you're looking for residential load shapes, OpenEI has a dataset for residential and commercial buildings.

The BAHSP schedules in tabular form can be found in You can also use BEopt to generate an EnergyPlus idf with the schedules from the BAHSP.

I was able to find some data out of NIST NET-ZERO ENERGY RESIDENTIAL TEST FACILITY (NZERTF) site. You can dig in the modeling section.
