If you live in an older home that’s seen better days, is not very energy efficient, and perhaps just not working for how you live, the question is demolition or remodel?Read More
The community of Stittsville in the far west of Ottawa has been a bit of a hot spot for families and new builds. We were delighted to help one family create a fully passive home there recently by constructing the weathertight shell for the project.Read More
The 2020 trade show season is about to get underway and we want to make sure you know where you can meet with us and pursue our shared interest in homes and smart home design, green living and sustainability. We’re also excited to announce our first EkoModel Open House of the year.Read More
We’ve got lots going on this summer across our homebase, the Ottawa region, but we’re also working on a new passive home in the Toronto area. We’re delighted to share a little about that project now.
The home is being built for a young forward thinking family who had to grapple with whether to replace the previous home on their property, which was built in the 1920s. Ultimately, this older home was sacrificing their health with poor indoor air quality and affecting their finances with extremely high heating bills.
The transition from winter to spring has made our laneway a little interesting, but we’re happy to say the Open House is very much on!
Spring EkoModel Home Open House
96 Libbys Road, McNab/Braeside, ON K7S 0E1
Sat, April 6, 2019
9am – 3pm
Come on out to experience a passive house, ask your questions and just generally get a chance to see the quality of work done by EkoBuilt.
We had more than 100 folks out in January and look forward to meeting many more of you this weekend!
We’ve had tremendous feedback on our Open House at the EkoModel Home this Saturday, 26 January 2019. Paul Kealey is already fully booked for conversations with some of you throughout the day; if you haven’t snagged a time to speak with Paul, don’t worry, there is still much to come out for:
- 12.30 – 1pm will feature a presentation on sustainable home building by a team from Algonquin College
- The whole day will be a super opportunity to look over and feel what it’s like to be in a passive home built with care and quality materials
- If you’re lucky, you may get a few minutes to speak with EkoBuilt’s Paul Kealey, but if not don’t worry, you can follow up with a phone call or arrange a meeting. EkoBuilt will also be an exhibitor at three shows in Ottawa this spring and will run another Open House at the EkoModel Home in April.
