Build a home that reflects your priorities and vision for the future
Your home is your biggest investment; it should be built for a strong and sustainable future. At Tooketree Homes, we believe sustainability is twofold. It means using the latest technology for energy efficiency, making our homes economically sustainable. It also means building homes that sequester carbon and avoid harmful materials, meeting the highest standards of environmental sustainability. Tooketree Homes offers services to support homeowners at every stage – from design, to construction to maintenance. Whether you’re interested in one of our standard models, or envision a custom home, you can rest assured that your Tooketree home will be comfortable, stylish and sustainable, today and into the future. It all starts with a conversation.
Diversify your materials to prepare for the future of building
Today’s clients are ecologically, environmentally and fiscally conscious. Understanding and meeting their evolving expectations is the way of the future. Tooketree Homes offers solutions for professional builders looking to diversify the breadth of materials that they are able to offer clients. Our prefabricated wall systems also save time and money since they arrive at the job site precisely manufactured and ready to install. Since we can install the walls and roof for a closed in building in a matter of days, this eliminatesmany unknowns that come from working around the elements and weather. This can help you to build higher quality homes and more homes with the same crew. Reach out today to discuss which options will work best for you and your business.
Why choose a Tooketree home?
For the comfort
Tooketree homes are free of cold drafts and room-to-room temperature variations. They stay a moderate, comfortable temperature in all seasons.
For the environment
Tooketree homes are built with materials that have a low-embodied carbon load (the carbon dioxide and other GHGs emitted during the manufacture, transport and construction of building materials, together with end-of-life emissions). We use locally-sourced, natural building materials, including wood, cellulose, straw or wood fibre for insulation, which sequesters carbon during the building process, instead of releasing CO2 into the atmosphere. You can also select to have your home certified as a Passive House, meet passive house standards, the world’s most rigorous standard for energy efficiency and comfort.
For your health
Tooketree selects building materials that have been proven to be among the safest and healthiest in the industry today. The health of those who live in a Tooketree home is our priority; our homes are particularly well-suited to those with allergies and other environmental sensitivities.
For your wallet
A passive house approach is like an R2000 house in many ways, except it is a huge leap forward in terms of energy efficiency. A passive house reduces energy costs significantly and simplifies heating and cooling systems, making it affordable to build significantly less costly to operate (heat and cool) than a code-built house. When compared to a Canadian code-built home, a passive home can be up to 75% less expensive to heat
