Ottawa, Ontario

Casey Grey, the Founder of The Conscious Builder designed his home to be with Christ Straka from Vert Design and had the air-tightness testing and labelling provided by Homesol Building Solutions. This absolutely beautiful home is a fully passive house has Themotec windows installed making the winters warm and the summers cool.

The house is also very air tight, with an ACH of just 0.54. It includes a Mitsubishi Air-Source Heat Pump, which is partial powered by the 10 KW solar panel system on the roof (installed after pictures were taken) meaning there is no need for a gas line to the house. This house is a staple of everything that The Conscious Builder stands by, to be energy efficient and environmentally friendly, and our reporting proved just that.
