Paul and his team were great. We worked together to some up with the best design for our space and we love the coach home that has come out of this. We opted for the passivhaus design and are very happy we did. The building is super energy efficient and quite close to soundproof. With the added solar panels, our coach house totally powers itself and a bunch of the main house too.
We also started this project with Ekobuilt before the pandemic and somehow, in spite of all the lockdowns and supply chain disruptions, our home was built on time and on budget. It certainly the only home I’ve heard of that was built during this period that did not have significant delays or cost overruns! You can tell it’s because of EkoBuilt’s care for their customers, they are always around to make sure the final product it perfect which makes them a pleasure to work with.
Highly recommend working with EkoBuilt.
After meeting with Paul and Adam, we made the decision to work with EkoBuilt in 2012 and it has since proven to be a truly enjoyable experience. Throughout the building process, the entire crew was personable, thorough, industrious and reliable, working diligently through difficult conditions in a challenging climate. From start to finish, Paul, Adam and their entire crew were open to our ideas and suggestions and went above and beyond to provide a high quality product. They are a highly talented and extremely skilled team whose passion and pride clearly reflects in both the work and service they deliver. Our family truly feels privileged to have worked with EkoBuilt. Over the years, we have lived in many houses; but now, we are finally home.

From the time EkoBuilt developed the structural plans to the point of attaching the last piece of finishing trim, it was evident that we had one of the finest builders available. Paul and Adam far exceeded our expectations throughout the entire building process with their strong sense of commitment, pride in their craft and attention to detail . As we sit in our dream home overlooking the lake, we know we made the right choice with EkoBuilt!

I had a dream to build a unique and wonderful home. I wasn’t sure how to go about this until I approached Paul Kealey. I drew a plan that included everything I envisioned and Paul helped me transform the idea into a realizable project. I also wanted to be involved with the project from start to finish. Adam and the build crew from EkoBuilt were super awesome to work with and welcomed my help where I could offer it. This was not a typical city build where you need an appointment to see your own house. I’ve learned a lot and had a great experience. If anyone would like to see the results of the project and speak to me in person they are welcome to my residence. Thank you, Paul and Adam.

My partner and I bought a lovely custom-built home in Lanark County several years ago which we sadly lost to fire in 2013. Fortunately I had met Paul Kealey through the local business community and seen his own house on the local studio tour which he uses as a model home for his building solutions business; so I knew of the beautiful and unique work done by EkoBuilt. Paul and Adam finished our new home last fall and my partner and I are astounded at the beauty of the house itself, the remarkable and gorgeous detailing inside, as well as the wonderful air tightness of the building. Paul and his team were a dream to work with, possessing an admirable ability to listen to our needs and make our vision happen. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend their business to anyone looking to build a new home!

As soon as we purchased our property, we knew it was the perfect site for a beautiful home; a dream of ours for a very long time. When we came across EkoBuilt in our search for a builder, we were so happy to have found a local builder. After several meetings and discussions about our plans with them, we knew they were the ones for us. Not only did they build us a beautiful home, they made our dream become a reality! There are many steps to creating a new home, and they were extremely dedicated to our project both then, and even now after we have moved in. They are always just an email or phone call away!

EkoBuilt built the house of our dreams, on time and on budget. Their quality craftsmanship and superb attention to detail is impressive to say the least. BUT, it is their willingness to go the extra mile – and the genuine joy that they derive when seeing a family first enter their beautiful new EkoBuilt home – that are this company’s greatest assets. We built our first home with Paul, Adam and crew in 2011 with a 1.5 year old in tow and another on the way. The EkoBuilt team became part of our family for the duration of the build and helped to minimize our stress by always being reachable, finding quick solutions to unexpected issues and following through on promises made. Years later, we are still in touch with Paul and Adam, and they continue to answer our questions, provide referrals to contractors and suppliers and share in the love and pride that we have for our forever family home. EkoBuilt is recommended without hesitation and respected by our family beyond compare.

We had the opportunity to have Paul Kealey and Adam Tackaberry contract our home on Elliot Lake. From our initial meeting to our finished home, we experienced professionalism, knowledgeable carpenters in all aspects of building. Paul and Adam completed our home in a very timely and organized manner, allowing other trades to be on schedule with our build. All aspects of our build were itemized prior to starting, any additional items and costs were identified in the planning stages, so as not to delay construction. We would highly recommend EkoBuilt to anyone.

Our sincere thanks to Paul Kealey & Adam Tackaberry, owners of EkoBuilt, who built the three-bedroom home at less than cost, with the support of many other construction partners. The beautiful home was built to generate income that will serve children in the Ottawa area who have limited access to the camp experience.
