Green & Healthy Building - Our Model Home

Welcome to the “Meadowlark” our Model Home.

Although still under construction, this is a perfect opportunity to see for yourself the embodied quality, pride and care applied to our environmentally responsible homes and cottages.

The Meadowlark has been carefully designed with substantial thought being given to our popular “light green” concept.

More Details on floor plan and price...  

We applied cost efficient design elements in order to create an extremely energy efficient package. Three sided wrap around porches and reasonable roof slopes have created a dramatic look to this light passive solar design. Large roof overhangs designed for this geographical zone keep this home cool during the hot summer days while letting the full winter sun generate substantial heat gain during our Canadian cold winter months. The open concept interior with soaring cathedral ceilings makes this moderately sized home feel substantially larger.

This model is also designed around a centralized masonry heater type of stone fireplace capable of supplying enough radiated heat energy to easily make this home very comfortable during the coldest and sunless winter days.

The MOST IMPORTANT element within or model home is our exclusive structural insulated panels (SIPS) providing a minimum of R25 within the walls. They are made of healthy chemically stable expanded polystyrene insulation (EPS) which does not emit any ozone depleting substances. This great product, manufactured in our local plant, provides high thermal protection and retains its insulating properties for life. Installation is very fast and simple, the savings are incredible and the health benefits are outstanding. Our plant goes even further in helping reduce our global environmental footprint by recycling ALL waste back into product. Our on site model was actually manufactured using 50% recycled EPS foam, carrying very low embodied energy!!

We are in fact…”Building today for tomorrow

Please note:

Our on site “display only” model has been built on engineered steel posts as opposed to a full foundation or heated slab. In reality, this type of concept would be much better suited on a concrete mass floor or similar hard surface providing heat absorption and retention characteristics. Nonetheless, this type of elliptical steel pier system (Postech) is well suited as foundations for porches, decks, sheds and small cottages up to 1000 square feet.
