EkoBuilt Project: Passive House in Etobicoke

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.

EkoBuilt Open House this Saturday

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.

Passive House Days 2018 and another Eco-Feu giveaway!

With International Passive House Days 2018 on the horizon, we’re getting excited about connecting with Ottawa area residents who want to know more about EkoBuilt’s passive house and sustainable home building options. Sadly, a tornado blighted the lives of some local residents on the same weekend as Green Energy Doors Open and we just didn’t get the turnout that we normally would.

There is another chance to chat with us in the EkoModel Home, from November 9-11, 2018. We hope you’ll come out with your questions and to experience the comfort of this super energy efficient home, a great example of what we can do.

You could win!
