Cost Analysis for Building an Eko Passive House

Building your own Passive House comes with tremendous advantages, but also comes with unique demands, like setting (and keeping to) a budget. How can you know if you can afford the home of your dreams if you can’t figure out what it’s likely to cost?

To help with this all-important part of the process, we offer a set of sample total costs for a custom home here. Click here for a comparison of annual running costs for a code-built house compared to our Passive Homes.

Please note that all pricing is in Canadian dollars, although we work across North America.
