Energy Efficient Home Plans

The most affordable way to build a passive home in North America.

Looking for energy efficient house plans?

Look no further! We offer many options for beautiful, smartly laid out, supremely comfortable and efficient homes.

We present our passive house plans in four key categories, as well as with optional garage/carport.

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

We’re happy to implement any of our designs as-is, or we will work with you to take a base plan and modify if it best suit your unique lifestyle needs and preferences.

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 materials.

US Customers – we have a page explaining how we ship our material to our customers in the United States.

House Performance Scenarios

There are also several different approaches to building an energy efficient home within your budget.

We do not sell just our plans on their own. Since our design package is based on our certified passivehouse 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.

Our top of the line offering is designed and engineered with comfort, performance and cost effectiveness in mind. A Passive House performs 85% better than a home built to today’s code.

Simply buy one of our house plans and get full access to our Eko Solar Engine, or have us customize a plan and build it for you.

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: During the pandemic, material costs have experienced incredible volatility. We are in the process of updating all of our pricing for 2022. Please reach out if you need a cost analysis for any of our house plans.
