So looking forward to seeing folks at the SMARTNet Sustainability Showcase and Electrical Vehicle exhibition tomorrow at Lansdowne Park. 10am to 4pm! See you there!
There’s a lot going on this fall and we want to be sure you know exactly where you can expect to meet up with us. Please note that Green Energy Doors Open will fall on the same weekend as the Ottawa Fall Home Show this year, so we’ve decided to move our fall open house to the next weekend, in early October.
This new custom home is just a stone’s throw from the Governor General’s residence in central Ottawa. It’s a great example of flexibility in an urban setting. The home is situated on an unserviced laneway in a historic neighbourhood just east of the city’s downtown core. The home’s design had to be approved by the city’s historical committee before a building permit could be obtained. Construction was made much more interesting because the nearest intersection was closed throughout for the installation of a storm water collection facility!
All of these challenges made building this home exciting and rewarding. The family we built it for really love the area and it’s fantastic to share the end result with our followers.
We know you’re in full-on summer mode, but we want to be sure you can save these dates for this fall. Please note that Green Energy Doors Open will fall on the same weekend as the Ottawa Fall Home Show this year, so we’ve decided to move our fall open house to the next weekend, in early October.
After a short delay in the project we’re back at full steam. Just 2 interior townhome units available! Imagine a home with no gas bill and no electric bill thanks to being on the net metering program!
The current season of trade shows is coming to a close, with our final appearance this coming weekend at Live the Smart Way.
Back for its fourth year in Ottawa, this show inspires Canadians to be the healthiest nation on earth. We hope you’ll come out to take part and come for a conversation at the EkoBuilt booth.

This inspirational show has returned to Ottawa for a third year, and we’re really looking forward to being there this coming weekend. Focused on everything related to health and wellness, the show will feature more than 100 booths, speakers, demos, sample and more.

The transition from winter to spring has made our laneway a little interesting, but we’re happy to say the Open House is very much on!
