"How we should build in Canada."


Indoor air quality is key for healthy living. Our choice of construction materials and techniques actively contributes to your healthy lifestyle.


High levels of insulation lead to very even temperatures in the house, no drafts in the winter and protects you from heat in the summer.



Thorough planning and precision made components, combined with careful assembly result in a long lasting home for you and your family.


We look at a house holistically and every detail matters.

Whether it is about the choice of materials, how every single component is manufactured and assembled, transported and raised. We combine age old German building traditions, with modern building tools and techniques, to create the best homes perfect for you. 



A typical wall, passive house suitable:

u-value: 0.094 kWh/m2a or ~R59
phase shift: 13+ hrs

insulation material: dense pack cellulose / mineral wool

1) 1/2" Drywall
2) 3 1/2" Service Cavity (filled with insulation)
3) 5/8" Airtight layer of plywood
4) Insulation Cavity (TJI or Larson Truss with dense pack cellulose)
5) 5/8" Vapour open Agepan DWD sheathing
6) Rear vented rain screen (functional, strapping shown)
7) Siding (not shown)

Why are we building the equivalent of a hoodie with a thin rain jacket in top for our houses, when we really need a thick breathable down jacket? Our current Canadian building standard is not adapted to the harsh realities of the Canadian climate. We design and build for Canada. Vapour tight on the inside, and breathable on the outside, just like a Gore-Tex jacket.

Insulation levels are increased to provide you with the necessary comfort during the winter, and heat protection during the summer. The materials we chose are chosen to emit as little harmful gases as possible. Cellulose (recycled news paper), and wood are our preferred materials.


A different process for a different outcome.


We construct the entire building in the digital world first. Every single component is created in our state of the art software, before it is fabricated in the real world. This leaves nothing up for a guessing game and tightly controls the entire building process.

We always like to show off, how it's all done in our facility in St Catharines.
