Waikato Riverlea Non-certified, eHaus Euro, PHI Low Energy


This compact, 100m², three bedroom home sits snugly overlooking a lush, green gully in Hamilton City. The three bedrooms open onto a central living/dining area with raking ceilings creating a sense of space. Outdoor living space is created by the generous roof overhang on either side of the living area providing shade and shelter. This home features European UPVC tilt and turn window joinery. It utilises SIP Panel wall construction with a mixture of long run metal and cedar exterior cladding.

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.
