Waikato Te Miro eHaus Euro, Certified, Passive House Classic


Set in the rolling hills of Te Miro this home is in fact two homes in one. A seperate but joined  apartment provides all of the comforts for one generation including two bedrooms an extensive library and study. Then on the other side of the door another home that has everything a growing family needs. including 3 bedrooms downstairs, an open plan dining living kitchen and then a master bedroom upstairs with a separate lounge and craft room. This house is a certified Passive House classic.

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.
