Every EkoBuilt PassiveHouse kit includes all of the items necessary for a watertight, wind tight, and vapour tight passive house. To help make the passive house more achievable and affordable for many, we leave the selection and purchase/installation of all other elements up to you. This works well for people wanting to build their own home entirely, to act as their own general contractor, or just to gain more control over the total project budget. Find out more >
