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.

You can always find a larger square foot home more cheaply from a developer, but as soon as you move into one of these spaces and notice the poor air quality, cheap finishes, and expensive utility bills, it is easy to become quickly dissatisfied with the space. Why compromise?Read More

The Fiddlehead in its original form is quite a departure from the Sunflower, which we recently profiled. Coming in at a modest 1,330 square feet, it includes 2 + 1 bedrooms and 3 baths over two floors.
The ground floor has a nice open plan, while the bedrooms have their own space on the upper floor. This appeals to anyone attached to two-storey living or concerned about the home’s footprint and its size. A two-storey home is typically less costly to build.Read More
The Sunflower in its original form is a pretty sweet houseplan. Running at 1,852 square feet, it encompasses 4 + 1 bedrooms in a really neat layout that places the bedrooms/bonus rooms off to the sides of the central living area, like wings or petals. It’s a houseplan that creates some really interesting corners and sightlines for indoor/outdoor living.Read More
