EkoBuilt’s demonstration PassiveHouse was built on a 10-acre property just west of Ottawa during 2016. This 2,506 square foot home includes 4 bedrooms, 2 1/2 bathrooms, and beautiful, sun-filled rooms.

We see the project as an opportunity show people the fundamental simplicity of the PassiveHouse concept – a house built with the latest technologies, but easy to build and operate.
