Energy Efficient Home Plans

Looking for energy efficient house plans? Look no further! We offer many options for beautiful, smartly laid out, supremely comfortable passive homes. We supply the floorplan and the weathertight shell for your home. We can also help you take it net zero. A passive house is the fastest route to net zero.

Choose one of our plans (and modify to suit your needs) or create a new one with us! We offer an in-house architecture service.

Foundations tend to be slab on grade unless a full basement is desired (some sites are particularly suited to a walkout basement).

Our PassiveHouse Materials

Every EkoBuilt PassiveHouse kit includes all of the items necessary for a watertight, wind tight, and vapour tight passive house. Read more about our passive house building system and materials.

There are also several different approaches to building an energy efficient home within your budget. Let’s talk!

North America’s most affordable passive home

We do not sell just our plans on their own. Since our design package is based on our certified passive house shell with proprietary materials, we can only provide our house plans with our materials package. We are confident we have the most affordable passive house package in North America!

Passive House Plans & Pricing

Any of our house plans can be built to different levels of energy efficiency, but we promote the Passive House standard as the best value for money and the smartest choice for now and the future.

Please note that all pricing is in Canadian dollars, although we will ship our weather-tight material kits across North America.

The House Plans

Pricing: Material costs have experienced incredible volatility in recent years. In late 2022 and early 2023 we updated the majority of cost analysis documents shared in this section. If a plan has a cost analysis that doesn’t say “NEW” next to it, it’s likely off by about 5%. Please reach out if you need a cost analysis for any of our house plans.
