Two Passive Homes in the United States

Yes, we can and do provide our EkoBuilt Passive House kits and plans to US homeowners!

We love that the passion for building passive continues across Canada as well as south of the border. We hear regularly from home owners in the United States keen to build with our weathertight material kit and super energy efficient plans. With governments around the globe now talking about carbon free futures, a passive home is more relevant than ever. We are pleased to share a couple of projects happening in the US this year.

Another house plan, three different ways

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.

New custom home in Wakefield, Quebec
