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.
