EkoModel Open House Delayed

We’ve all seen the writing on the wall, and it would appear that we’ll have to delay our late April Open House until the government approves gatherings of more than five people.

In the meantime, we’ll be working on our current projects, undertaking a revamp of the EkoBuilt website, continuing to enjoy our conversations with the folks who reach out daily to explore home building projects, posting a whole bunch of project updates with pictures to our blog, and trying to keep a positive outlook.

If you haven’t noticed it yet, we’ll draw your attention to the 2020 Free Shipping campaign that we’ve just launched. Check it out and stay well!

EkoBuilt Open House this Saturday

We’ve had tremendous feedback on our Open House at the EkoModel Home this Saturday, 26 January 2019. Paul Kealey is already fully booked for conversations with some of you throughout the day; if you haven’t snagged a time to speak with Paul, don’t worry, there is still much to come out for:

  • 12.30 – 1pm will feature a presentation on sustainable home building by a team from Algonquin College
  • The whole day will be a super opportunity to look over and feel what it’s like to be in a passive home built with care and quality materials
  • If you’re lucky, you may get a few minutes to speak with EkoBuilt’s Paul Kealey, but if not don’t worry, you can follow up with a phone call or arrange a meeting. EkoBuilt will also be an exhibitor at three shows in Ottawa this spring and will run another Open House at the EkoModel Home in April.
