A sneak peek at current EkoBuilt projects

We’re starting 2019 with a great variety of projects, including single family homes, a two-family shared home, a net-zero multi-unit project and a very modern passive summer camp. Read along to learn more!

Wakefield Project

Custom home projects in 2019 by EkoBuiltThis project in Wakefield, Quebec is currently under construction. The foundation was installed in November 2018 and framing started in mid-January.

The design is a custom client inspired concept which focuses on privacy from neighbors, natural light for all spaces, and abundant storage space because of slab on grade (no basement as the property is on bedrock).

Chelsea project

The community is a highly sought after one because of its convenience to the capital. Chelsea is also a nature/outdoor lover’s paradise as it borders Gatineau Park.

The design is a modified version of our Fiddlehead model with an attached garage and a basement.

Old Chelsea project

Old Chelsea custom home floorplan by EkoBuilt

The open floorplan has a clever L-shape that accommodates bedrooms and tucks a screened in porch off the kitchen for warm weather dining.

Yet another Quebec-side property, this one is located near the Gatineau River in a peaceful rural section of Old Chelsea with abundant trees.

The design is a custom client inspired concept. Inspiration has been taken from the client’s beautiful property which is surrounded by white pines. A minimalistic approach to design has resulted in a three-bedroom home with a smaller footprint that still maintains comfortable spaces for the homeowners.

This Ontario property is located near Pembroke on the north east shore of beautiful Round Lake.

The design is a custom client inspired vision of a summer camp with modern design and appeal. We all know modern design starts with building passive!

The lakefront orientation is perfect for this project, with living areas facing the waterfront which is also due south, a fundamental principle in passive house design.
