Net Zero Ready, Cottage-Style Homes

Our Net Zero Ready Homes are:

The Peak of Comfort. Better air quality, and control of temperature makes for a comfort in your home you didn’t know was possible. 

80% more energy efficient than new homes built to today’s Building Code, reducing your energy bills drastically.

Built to Last. The reason they are so efficient is because of how they are built. Solid at every connection, and incredible insulation keeps temperatures steady and homes resilient for years to come.

“Peace of mind” homes. It just feels good to breathe better air and know your home is using clean, environmentally sustainable technology.

 

Not to Mention … 

You want to purchase quality and honor the environment for future generations. You already are aware that better living and environmental stewardship don’t have to be mutually exclusive. Our homes are the perfect example. 

Our standard Watercolour home is built to the amazingly high standards of Net Zero Energy Ready. Beyond the upgraded quality, it also means our homes are ready to be used with Solar Panels and Batteries for a fully Net Zero Home.

We are finally at a time in the building industry, where we have the technology to create buildings that produce as much energy as they consume on an annual basis.  The homes of Watercolour Westport are more comfortable, healthier to live in, and maintenance-free compared to any other house you have lived in.  They also help prevent the causes of climate change.

We aren’t waiting for the laws to require this in 2030 – we are starting now! We are committed to making a positive contribution to the lives of our homeowners, their families for generations to come, and to have an exemplary level of environmental stewardship.
