House with recessed LED lighting

Custom 2-Storey Passive Home

In 2020 we sold our first model home, the hugely popular Trillium model that we had built west of Ottawa as a showcase for our passive house offering. This is an overview of that build. Our new model home isn’t ready yet, but you can read about it here.

The Trillium

The Trillium energy efficient house plan is a two-storey home with a really unique layout, including single storey “wings” that were used for the kitchen and master suite, respectively.

The core two-storey section of the home houses living spaces and a powder room on the main level and three bedrooms and a bathroom on the upper level.

The street facing side of the home features smaller windows, while the living areas at the rear side of the home feature much larger windows and patio doors.

3,121 sq ft | 4 Bed, 2.5 Bath

The home comes with the option of adding a carport or two-car garage.

NEW! Having sold our last demonstration home in 2020, we’re really excited to begin building a new one in 2021. Located right in West Ottawa, it will be even more convenient to see. Read more.
