What a year! The commitment to sustainable home building from our customers and just about everyone we spoke to this year is incredible.
Thank you for a great year of building for the future together.
We’re very excited about what 2022 has in store and continuing on this journey together.
From our families to yours, we wish you the happiest of holidays, and a Merry Christmas.
See you in 2022!

Until now, Toronto homeowners have only been able to add a secondary residence to their property if it is next to a public laneway; this will change when the new Garden Suites provision is approved.Read More
Anyone who follows us knows our commitment to action on climate change. We’re very pleased to share this update from the International Passive House Association (iPHA) about how passive house will feature at COP26.Read More
Over the years we’ve tried to do what we can to shine a light on renovation and not just to promote new builds. You may have an older home in an older neighbourhood that you just love and you don’t want to leave, but the energy bills are steep and it’s not as comfortable as it could be.Read More
We’re so pleased to have interior shots of a recently completed EkoBuilt passive house that uses our extremely popular Hummingbird plan. This super energy efficient bungalow has four bedrooms and two bathrooms, and just a great sense of flow.
The plans include a statement wall of windows that also creates a tremendous sense of connection with the outside world. Not surprisingly, this plan is particularly popular with clients who’ve selected a location where nature features large.
Hummingbird House Plan
It’s all in the details for this simple yet very effective house plan:
- Master bedroom with ensuite
- 3 additional bedrooms
- Second bath with shower near home’s entrance
- Huge common living area with kitchen / dining / and living spaces focused along a statement wall of windows
- Integrated screened in porch for outdoor living
- Utility/laundry room
- 1,916 sq ft
- Build slab on grade or optional basement
This house plan is one of our most requested and will also be one of our first homes to be built in the United States (Lake Placid – project expected 2022).
See interior shots for this recently completed home on Round Lake in rural Ontario (near Pembroke) by EkoBuilt below.
The plan used in this build is slightly different than the main Hummingbird Plans on our Passive House Plans page.
