Home Designs

Finding inspiration can sometimes be a challenge and starting from a blank page might seem overwhelming. Even though we have never built the same home twice, we understand that it can help to start building your dream from an existing home floorplan then make changes to suit you. That’s why we are continuously developing new home designs and ideas to inspire you.

PassivHaus – h4

It’s more fun (for most people) to talk about the amazing innovations in their new phones than the incredible new thermal slab their house is sitting on or their thermally-efficient windows. However, your phone will be obsolete next year, but decades into the future you’ll still be wondering why your energy bills keep getting higher. That’s why we love talking to our clients about our passive homes, which are safer, healthier, energy efficient and kinder to the environment.

What’s a “passive house”?

Passivhaus is a concept developed in Germany that is being adopted and proven worldwide.Passive homes have a goal of increasing a building’s energy efficiency and reducing its ecological footprint. Buildings constructed to Passive House standards are ultra-low energy buildings: they use little energy for heating or cooling and are extremely comfortable and healthy to live in.H4 Passive Homes are amazingly comfortable and far healthier than standard homes. They have excellent indoor air quality, minimal energy consumption and features normally found only in expensive homes.

An H4 Passive Home can be achieved with any design style or building budget.

It involves careful planning and paying attention to things that are free-everything from the body heat of the occupants to the orientation of the house. We are specialists in designing and building to this standard, and encourage all our customers to consider some smart upgrades that will result in the best home they have ever lived in.

Just ask our customers who are now experiencing living in their H4 Passive Homes.

Can I retrofit my existing house to the Passivhaus standard?

Yes you can, with any major renovation you can retrofit to Passive House standard, but special consideration needs to be taken with the existing structure.
