Custom Energy Efficient Home Builders

We design and build stunningly cool energy-efficient homes, using the unparalleled Passive House standard.

Visualize living in the home of your dreams. Enjoy fresh indoor air quality, stable room temperatures day and night, and use less energy to heat your home than it takes to run a hairdryer. Relax in ultimate comfort with all the the pleasures of a home, and pay 90% less on your heating costs. Sounds good, doesn't it!

It wouldn't surprise us if you're skeptical, green design and sustainable building often come with complex systems and high-cost.

Our homes have simple mechanical systems, easy to understand and inexpensive to maintain. Our designs offer the simplest and most sensible way to achieve net-zero in our region! Imagine making all the electricity you need right at home.

Your home can be the foundation of a simple life with wide-ranging comfort. People who value flexibility, energy independence and innovative house designs have arrived. Your time is now.
