US Passive House Plans & Kits

The Most Affordable Passive House in North America

Our pre-certified passive house plans and material kits have been shipped to customers across the United States including in Maine, North Carolina, and New York.

We are EkoBuilt, based in Ottawa, Canada, and we’re certain that we design and ship the most affordable passive house option in North America.

It’s this easy:

  1. Choose your preferred EkoBuilt passive house plan (request changes to suit your life style or site).
  2. We ship the weathertight material kit direct to your location (more on this below) and offer an on-site visit by EkoBuilt.
  3. You build yourself or engage local tradespeople to do it for you.
  4. Enjoy the supreme comfort of your new passive home and its super-low energy costs.

Passive House Plans

Our house plans range in size from the very modest (starting at 400 sq ft) to the generous 3,200 sq ft). Although we default to slab on grade, any plan can include a full basement or walkout basement. We can also incorporate a carport or garage.

Our passive homes are popular across ages and stages – first home, vacation home, off-grid home, tiny home, secondary dwelling, and more. They are loved by urbanites and country folk alike!

Our pre-certified passive house kits work particularly well for: the Do-it-Yourselfer, the small builder or contractor, the owner-builder who wants to act as their own general contractor.

Pre-Certified Passive House Kit

Our weathertight material kit is where the pre-certified passive designation comes in. The kit can be put together by any experienced carpenter.

Our kit is actually provided to our US customers in three bundles:

  1. We send down our I-joists and passive approved fibre board and tape/gaskets from our location in Canada.
  2. We source some of the lumber components and roof truss system in the customer’s local area.
  3. Our passive certified window and door supplier is set up for US logistics and these are shipped direct.
