What's included in the People's House Collection?

The Peoples House Plans are energy modelled using the internationally recognised Passive House Planning Package (PHPP). Performance outcomes based on eHaus Pacific standard. A minimum targeted temperature of 20°c using up to 50kWh per m2/year (some heating and cooling will be required). Comparatively, a typical NZ standard code build home requires at least 120kWh per m2 to maintain a similar temperature for a year (based on a home located in Whanganui).

The Peoples House plans are pre-designed but will require site specific design based on your section and the regional climate, earthquake, wind and snow zones.

Earthwork costs are based on good ground* and flat sites only. Additional costs apply for any non good ground and flat sites.
