Kapiti Waikanae Beach Non-certified, eHaus Euro, PHI Low Energy


This home is built on 3 levels nestling well into the natural surroundings. With a garage and workshop downstairs, 3 bedrooms above that are connected to the open plan kitchen dining space. There is a private deck at the rear of the property giving great indoor outdoor flow.  Just a 1kW panel heater is sufficient to keep the home warm in winter and the solar PV system ensures minimum running costs throughout the year.

Extraordinary heat energy savings.

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.

This project is making significant carbon savings for a better environment.

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.
