We’re so pleased to have interior shots of a recently completed EkoBuilt passive house that uses our extremely popular Hummingbird plan. This super energy efficient bungalow has four bedrooms and two bathrooms, and just a great sense of flow.
The plans include a statement wall of windows that also creates a tremendous sense of connection with the outside world. Not surprisingly, this plan is particularly popular with clients who’ve selected a location where nature features large.
Hummingbird House Plan
It’s all in the details for this simple yet very effective house plan:
- Master bedroom with ensuite
- 3 additional bedrooms
- Second bath with shower near home’s entrance
- Huge common living area with kitchen / dining / and living spaces focused along a statement wall of windows
- Integrated screened in porch for outdoor living
- Utility/laundry room
- 1,916 sq ft
- Build slab on grade or optional basement
This house plan is one of our most requested and was one of our first homes to be built in the United States (Lake Placid, New York).
See interior shots for this recently completed home on Round Lake in rural Ontario (near Pembroke) by EkoBuilt below.
The plan used in this build is slightly different than the main Hummingbird Plans on our Passive House Plans page.

Located on a wooded property near a ski hill in Wakefield, Quebec is a custom home that we finished in 2020. The cost effective house design for this home began with a plan to fit three bedrooms into a modest but comfortable 1,200 ft.² bungalow with no basement (the home is on bedrock).
Typically, a three-bedroom bungalow would run closer to 1,500 ft.² or more, but we utilized some space saving techniques and landed with a great design that totals 1,216 ft.²Read More
