Net Zero Perth Townhomes Selling – Don’t Delay!

We’ve been delighted with the interest in EkoBuilt’s development of five townhomes in the PerthWorks Community in historic Perth, Ontario. Two units have already been claimed, leaving only two middle and one end unit for prospective buyers.

These units represent exceptional value – $289k for an end unit, $279k for a middle unit – for homes that will be net zero in their energy consumption and built to the Passive House standard.

Situated centrally in charming Perth, homeowners will be able to enjoy all that the town has to offer as well as being within commuting distance of Ottawa.

EkoBuilt is working with homeowners to fully customize their units’ plans to best suit their needs and lifestyle.

The sample floorplans we offer are a great starting point and make tremendous use of the nearly 2,000 square feet of living space on these two-storey towns.

5 EkoBuilt Townhomes for Sale in Perth

EkoBuilt is undertaking a unique development of five townhomes in the PerthWorks Community in historic Perth, Ontario. These five super energy efficient town homes for sale will be freehold, and will be connected to net-metering, resulting in incredibly low monthly utility fees (approx $40/month). We’re aiming for Passive House certification on the units, and each will include EV plugs inside the integrated garage, drain water heat recovery, and much more.

Perth Works Community MapPositioned just four blocks from Perth’s downtown core, the units will be part of the revitalized PerthWorks development. This is a fantastic opportunity to be part of a community development that will have many appealing features.

All 5 units will be fully customizable – you decide on the floorplan that will best fit your lifestyle and needs. You can even decide to convert the planned integrated garage into more living space if that works better for you.

With nearly 2,000 sq ft of living space, these Perth town homes will be spacious and comfortable and have the quality associated with every EkoBuilt home build.

Purchase contracts to be finalized by late February 2019, groundbreaking in May 2019, occupancy December 2019.

Enter to win an Eco-Feu tabletop fire

We’re continuing our promotion of the Eco-Feu tabletop fire feature! We’ve got a Cartier tabletop fire feature from ethanol fireplace maker Eco-Feu of Montreal to give away at the Ottawa Fall Home Show, which is on now through Sunday.

Cartier table top fire featureThese units make perfect centerpieces and/or accent lighting. Burning for 2 to 3 hours, they feature a soothing, vibrant, real flame.

The Cartier unit when paired with a 4 gallons of fuel would normally total $308.80. Show attendees will be able to enter the raffle to win the unit – it’s as simple as joining our mailing list.

We will also have a complete Eco-Feu catalogue on hand so that attendees can see the other ethanol fire place/feature options. This is an important give away for us, as it helps with communicating the ease of heating a Passive House.

We look forward to see you at the Ottawa Fall Home Show this weekend (we’re at booth #1723)!

EkoBuilt: official sponsor of the Ottawa Fall Home Show

We’ll be looking forward to meeting and talking to everyone who comes out – find us at booth #1723. You can see us on the show floorplan. Full show details below, including show hours.

We want to thank the small but dedicated group who came to visit the EkoModel Home last weekend during Green Energy Doors Open when communities in Ottawa and Gatineau were struck by fierce thunderstorms and tornadoes. Our thoughts have been with those affected. So many local folks have jumped into action to help, and there are many ways to provide support still, including donating to the Ottawa Sens & Fans Tornado Relief effort on GoFundMe.

EkoBuilt logo spotted on the famous Pamir Highway

Known as the “roof of the world”, the Pamir highway (M-41) is an adventure roadtripper’s dream. Team Shenlong arrived in Osh, Kyrgyzstan today after driving the Pamir highway, roughly following the route shown below. The picture of the team (highlighting EkoBuilt, thanks guys!) was taken near the highest stretch of the road in the northeast corner of Tajikistan (red box in the map pictured below).

Wow! Topping out at something like 4,655m, the road is considered to be the second highest international highway in the world. EkoBuilt has truly gone to new heights!

The team will continue on through Krygyzstan, Kazakhstan, Russia and Mongolia in the coming days and weeks, and expect to be at the finish line in Ulan, Ude by early September. Go Team Shenlong!

Midsummer Pause

We hope this part of the summer finds you enjoying a break, just back from one or perhaps just getting ready to go. Maybe you’re sprinkling mini breaks through these warm months when we can get outside more easily.

At EkoBuilt, we’re very excited about the engagement we continue to enjoy with so many of you, so many folks interested in sustainable living, coach homes and tiny homes, comfortable high performance homes of many different shapes and descriptions.

We hear from some of you every week, and we’re bursting with news on our latest projects and an update on the first Eko Community that we’re hoping to see move to the design phase shortly. We hear from folks interested in forming an Eko Community regularly, and we encourage you to get your name on our list if you’re keen in participating in one.

Feast by Firelight cookbook coverFor now, we hope you’re getting to enjoy time doing what you enjoy most.

If you’ve got any camping or outdoor cooking with a campfire on the horizon, you might enjoy Feast by Firelight by Emma Frisch, a book we recently came across.

Happy midsummer.
