What Our Clients Say
We are now wrapping up the finishing stages of building our EkoBuilt Passive House. We ordered our house kit from EkoBuilt and Paul Kealey was such an amazing support throughout the entire build process… answering our questions, guiding us through and visiting our site to consult with us. We can’t thank Paul enough for being such an incredible person and providing us with this opportunity to build an amazing home that has already proven itself to be everything it promised to be… super efficient, amazingly comfortable, still and quiet, and being kind to our future selves with affordable and predictable low energy consumption into the future. If you’re thinking of building a home, we strongly recommend taking the Passive House route… and EkoBuilt is absolutely recommended as the company of choice. Jennifer Pimentel, passive home owner
