The family room also opens out to an amazing outdoor all-weather entertaining space. Designed to meet the Passive House standard, the home delivers comfort, health and energy efficiency for the family. The mechanical heat recovery ventilation system working quietly in the background, providing filtered fresh warm air. uPVC joinery was used throughout adding to the energy efficiency of the home. Outside, the white board-and-batten cladding with natural detailing and a gabled portico blend brilliantly to Mount Taranaki. This award winning home is a stunner. This home won a Gold and took the Category Winner at the Registered Master Builder 2021 House of the Year Competition, Taranaki. This home also was in the National Top 100 homes for 2021. Our architectural, central & build teams are very proud of this incredible project.

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.
