New Developments with Passive House Building

Pheasant Hill Homes Ltd. has been a Passive House builder since before the general public in Canada knew what Passive House building was.  Co-owner Ken Connolly is a Trained in Passive House Design building through CanPHI (Canadian Passive House Institute), and Site Manager Burke Stoller is trained in Passive House Building as well.

Passive House Building means constructing a home which heats and cools itself, and in turn, significantly reduces energy costs along with creating a comfortable and healthy environment to live in.  Business in Vancouver’s Green Space magazine – author Susan M. Boyce, has written an article on the heart beat of Passive House Building in Vancouver.  Bylaws in Vancouver are changing towards Passive House Building standards and hints at the cost coming down for building to a Passive House standard as more builders are becoming Passive House certified.  Pheasant Hill Homes is proud to be a Passive House Builder on Vancouver Island and surrounding Gulf Islands.  See some of their Passive House builds HERE.  Follow up with reading Business in Vancouver’s article titled:

CHBA – CVI Home & Reno Show 2013 Recap

Thanks to all who took in the CHBA – CVI Home & Reno Show 2013

Whew! Another busy show come and gone, and thanks to all the participants and guests who made it another successful, professional homeshow in beautiful downtown Nanaimo at the Vancouver Island Conference Center.

Our Ken Connolly took the Speaker’s Stage with his “Love it or Leave it – Should you Move, Build, or Renovate?” presentation and it was very well received. We hope that you will find the video of the presentation below helpful and informative. Your home, whatever it may be, is usually the single largest investment you’ll make, so it is important to carefully weigh your options whether you’re looking to upgrade to something grander and more spacious or downsize to something more efficient and affordable.

Enjoy the video, and feel free to contact us with any questions you might have, or ideas for future presentation topics.

Please note: the sound quality on this video isn’t very good. But we thought we’d share it anyhow.
