Taupo Kinloch Non-certified, eHaus Euro, PHI Low Energy


There is no doubt that Kinloch is an amazing place to live, right on the shores of lake Taupo with views of lake and mountains that make you catch your breath. We also know that it is one of the coldest places to live through a winter in the North Island but when you build an eHaus there is no need to worry about that! We are so happy to show you this first eHaus in Kinloch with its modern architectural take on energy efficiency designed by our fantastic Waikato based designer Dean Baldock. Watch this space as we have more Kinloch projects in the pipeline to keep this beautiful new home company.


"We have been in our beautiful home a year now. I’m so excited to tell you that we haven’t paid a power bill to date! We are even in credit of $300 after the winter! Now that’s what I call sustainable living. When we’d been in a couple of weeks, I realised I had a pile to be donated: full of electric blankets, duvets, fans, and heaters."

— Heather Darroch

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.
