Manawatu Ruapehu Drive eHaus Pacific


This home has a commanding rural outlook and further in the distance the city of Palmerston North. With 3 bedrooms upstairs and a seperate guest bedroom downstairs this home has been designed with flexibility in mind. The Kitchen dining living area is at the rear of the house and north facing capturing the views and opening up onto a full size deck for great indoor out door flow. This is a great example of modern architecture that is still able to deliver high performance and comfort.

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.
