Ottawa passive home builder EkoBuilt works in the City of Ottawa and across the Ottawa Valley and environs on whole house builds. We also ship our house plans and material kits across North America.
Our pre-certified passive house plans and material kits are the most affordable way to go passive in North America. Our homes are so energy efficient, we say that you can take it Net Positive, not just Net Zero. That means with one of our homes, you can add solar panels and make more energy than your home actually uses.
We work with clients with small urban infill lots, homeowners with larger rural lots, as well as with clients building a second or vacation home.
If your property is within 2 hours drive time of our west Ottawa, Ontario base, we can handle the entire build for your new home or secondary dwelling.
We’ve also got the experience and know-how to work with these building standards: LEED for Homes,R2000,Green Globes, EnergyStar, and Living Building Challenge. We’re also very excited about Net Zero and how it pairs with our own Passive House offering.
Perhaps you’d like to consider elements of one or more of these building approaches, or you’re simply hoping to figure out the most energy efficient home that you can afford to build, balancing design and taste with low energy input.
Meeting you where you are
We know the ins and outs of all of the above building methodologies, and the best ways to make the most of the resources you have to invest.
We can help with any of the steps along the way, in any combination, including planning and budgeting, design, construction drawings, and every facet of the building and finishing process. We work with individual homeowners, self-build clients, and other builders.
Our passion for sustainable home building is very much focused on energy efficiency, comfort and health.
How we work
Do you have a complete picture of your new home in mind? We can start there and work to turn your vision into a design with technical drawings and specs.
More often, clients have a strong sense of what they want, but need the inspiration of an existing house plan to react to. Over the years we’ve learned the value of starting with excellent house plans that are a close fit, and then working with our clients to fully customize the plans to match their unique needs and lifestyle.
We have passive home plans to suit a wide range of family and household sizes and lifestyles, and which can be adapted to different building standards and methodologies. We love the process of working from these starting points to achieve the house of your dreams.
We also know how important it is to discuss costs and what can be achieved within budget. To aid in this process, we have put together some guidelines and sample costs.
