This house is designed and built for a Swiss couple that wanted a warm comfortable home like they were used to in Europe. The home is set in the foothills of Mount Taranaki with clear views of the mountain and the coastline. "You can hop out of bed at 2 o’clock in the morning, it’s warm, and it’s warm everywhere... not just in the lounge area... it’s warm in the bathroom, it’s warm everywhere without us doing anything." – Rudolf and Verna
Every one of our projects are energy modelled using the Passive House Planning Package (PHPP). It's through this powerfully clever tool that we can accurately calculate just how much heat energy every eHaus will save when compared to a similarly- sized typical new home, built in the same climate region.
We believe that our homes should have a big impact on the way we live, but little impact on the land. We've calculated the amount of carbon our homes have saved through energy efficiency from move in day 'til now. At their core, eHaus' are built with the elimination of carbon emissions in mind - so we're not only creating healthy, comfy & high performing homes, but spaces that don't cost the earth.
